Playing HD Videos (nvidia)

hi, new to the forum.

hope you guys can help me out here.

a couple of weeks ago i downloaded some movie trailers in HD (1280X720 .mov format) quicktime.

when i tried to play them my display i would get no video but the sound was good.

so my friends told me to get a new Graphics card, got the nvidia geforce 8400 gs.

now my videos play but now.... they play in slowmotion, once again, the sound is good

when i play a wmvHD video, they play great! problem seems to be with the .mov format.

what could be the problem, i tried messing with the settings in the nvidia control panel, nothing.

downloaded the latest driver for the nvidia card, still. i even downloaded the k-lite codecs.

i also tried different players VLC,KMP,WMP,POWERDVD.... nothing. still in slowmotion.

can someone help me? does someone know the proper settings? or is it something else?

here are my PC specs:

  2. The reason your videos are slowing down is because of your proccessor, I beleive it cannot keep up with the video encoding during video playback.
  3. thanks for the reply..

    i dont know much about all these computer specs and stuff...

    but howcome, i can play wmvHD Videos in 720p just fine....

    but not the .mov HD Videos?

    it doesnt make pc perfers one format over another??

    even if i download quicktime player, still in slowmotion.

    funny thing is... before i bought the nvidia 8400, i could play the .mov files, just fine..

    and back then it couldnt play wmvHD, so now its the oppsite... very frustrating!

    thats why im sure its a setting i need to do...

    does anyone else have a possible solution??
