    i have ..:- pentium 4 1.8 ghz, 1gb ram, nvidia geforce fx 5500, windows xp
  3. hey xbeater i am fully devoted of having some computer information. i want to start with graphics topic. will you guide me??/
  4. 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.

    but the video runs well in window media player.
  6. sure what do you want to know?
  7. 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.
