I just purchased a custom built gaming rig from infotech.
It runs games like Crysis on optimal graphics settings perfectly in game. But I'm having problems with in game videos on my system being pixelized even when they're supposed to be in hd. I've downloaded the latest drivers for my graphics card and can't figure out what the problem is. I've tried two different monitors using the dvi cable my new Asus 20" LED monitor uses. Same problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My system specs are :
4 gigs ram
Gtx 550ti video card
Asus p8p67 motherboard With p67 b3 revision
Intel core i5 2400 quadcore processor
Anything else u need to know?
What is your resolution?
To watch videos in HD you need to adjust your Resolution of the game and of windows likewise.You can't watch videos in HD on 800 x 600.
please post info about your display monitor.
Well I've tried a different monitor and also a VGA cable also. Plus, when I took the pc in to have infotech look at it, they swapped out the graphics card supposedly. So I don't know what the issue is.
Well, I got my system back from the shop last week and, they obviously didn't even check it out. I'm still having the same problem. Most videos I try to watch on the system are pixelated as hell. Here's a screenshot of a video from Crysis 2.
I've tried different drivers, codecs, and nothing seems to help. I don't believe it's a hardware issue though because all videos and images would be pixelated right? They told me they switched out my video card, and its doing the same thing. So i've kind of ruled it out. What's going on?
The "Lithoship" video is a bad example to use because the video itself is pixellated. The pixellation is basically used to show some transmission or recording interference in Prophet's symbiotic armor.
Videos are "as is". As long as the proper codec is being used to playback the video, there should be no addition video artifacts appearing other than what has already been encoded into the video.
sounds like the vids you are watching have been badly compressed.
original dvds have less blocking as they are not compressed as much. hd 1s even less so.
it will be very noticeable on downloaded copies of movies all you can do is make sure yos set your media player to use hardware acceleration and deblocking via your gfx cards profile. you may also not have the rite codecs installed. if you have vista, win 7 then all you will need is vlc player but if you use wmp 12 then get vlc anyway as it will help with wpm comparability. (for some reason im not entirely sure of)
if you have xp then use the xp codec pack . i cant recommend k-lite as i have often found its hard to get a clean version.
also. only have 1 codec pack installed. if you have more you will get conflicts.
