no hardware acceleration, wrong codecs, many possibilities really.

yeah thats a bit low. To play HD video 1920*1080p it takes quite a computer. Minimum I believe is somewhere in a dual core, and definetely a stronger video card. Ram helps aswell.

P4 at 1.8 ghz is really not going to do it.

yes I also had a similar issue:

On my netbook: 1.6ghz atom, 2gb ram, GMA950, it ran fine in media player, but other players had trouble.

I don't know maybe windows media player is built with better hardware acceleration, or some special codec or something...

I never bothered with anything other than media player since windows 7 since it plays everything.
