I got a brand new laptop with blue ray drive in it and am trying to stream blue ray to my tv. i am using a trial version of powderdvd10. when i play regular dvds it workd great. however when i play a blu ray it flickers the whole time. very fast flickering ( basicly a strobe) the sound streams great but picture does not.

I am running a Sony vaio
with:
i3 core 330m 2.13ghz
4GB DDR3 memory
IntelĀ® Graphics Media Accelerator HD
Feature up to 1755MB total video memory




What do i need to do? surely that is enough computing power to run a blu ray. but my cpu Usage when reading the blu ray is up near 90%.


HELP PLEASE!

Thanks

Probably have the "read it clearly" box checked. If it is that may be the problem. I have only experienced it to work with NV cards.

I'm not sure about this, but from what I've heard, Intel IGP's like yours have issues playing Blu-Ray properly. They just are not fast enough. If you want to watch Blu-Ray bad enough, just return your laptop and get one with dedicated video.

Sounds like the integrated graphics aren't able to keep up.
first i would check for updated drivers from sony http://esupport.sony.com/EN/DRIVERS
second reduce screen resolution
third exchange laptop for one with better video capabilities
