    Hope this is the right forum.

    I have a custom built machine.
    It includes:
    Windows 7 pro 64 bit
    Motherboard: ASUS M4N75TD
    AMD Phenom II x4 965 Processor 3.40 Ghz
    RAM 8 GB
    Nvidia GeForce 470

    I use Premiere Pro CS5 with GPU acceleration chosen
    For some reason, the machine will not play HD video (1920x1080) smoothly
    These are .mov files.
    No matter what player I use I get the same result of lag and stuttering.

    Not sure what the issue is.
    Looking for help.
    Thanks

    Yes, wilson44512, I have quicktime installed. I just updated the drivers to the graphics card and still no change.
    I'm curious if it matters that my C drive is almost full? Possibly there is a diagnostic that can test the Nvidia card.

    How full is you hard drive and how much space is left?. Is it a GeForce GTX 470? If so It need the power supply connected directly to it. How many watts is your power supply?

    What do you use the Premiere Pro CS5 for? Are these .MOV files Your videos you made? Or are they from the internet?. If there yours they could be corrupted.
    Can you go online to watch HD video? What browser do you use?


    And have you check to make sure windows is up to date?

    Yes, it's a GeForce GTX 470.
    So, YouTube 1080p HD plays fine. I'm starting to think it's the files I've been trying to play.
    I downloaded them from Footage Firm (Video Blocks). It seems my machine is not happy with those files.
    I also loaded a high end video game and it plays fine.
    I have not yet used my BlueRay drive. If that plays fine then I know it's those files.
    I also have not yet imported camera raw hd footage.. So, I still have those options to try before I can absolutely target those .mov files I downloaded.
    Thanks for your help and suggestions.
