    Whenever I try to play a video file in quicktime, the audio always skips and is choppy...this does not happen for me with real player or windows media player. I can't find any troubleshooting for quicktime. Does anyone know what could be causing this? Thanks

    I can play the actual video fine, but the sound is the problem. It's very garbled and choppy. And this happens with whatever MOV file I play...

    Okay

    Control Panel | sounds or sounds and multimedia, whichever os your using.

    select the audio tab, playback device box, advanced, performance tab, is hardware acceleration enabled?

    OK thanks Eddie, I got it fixed now :) The hardware acceleration for the audio was on full, and i just took it down one notch to standard, and the audio goes smoothly now. THANKS. feel free to close this
