I’ve downloaded and installed the K-Lite Basic codec pack, and here is what i’m noticing:
720p MOV files:
1. VLC and MPC (media player classic) cannot play them smoothly, very jumpy!
2. WMP9 plays them smoothly!!
1080p WMV file (downloaded from Windows website):
1. VLC and MPC starts, but hangs…..no video!
2. WMP9 plays it but skips every 5 seconds!
It seems WMP9 is the better player?? with the right codec pack?
Can you guys try WMP9 with the CoreAVC codec installed, and see if it will play 1080p files smoothly?? Thanks, appreciate it!
