At least he can disable if he wants and if his internet stop working he knows what to enable back.. but of course he should set up the wireless card manager instead
I managed to solve the problem...
1) I changed all the performance stuff like Irecinius said to... but didn't manage to do the last 2 things due to a lack of administrator priviliges.
2) I changed the association of FFDshow in the CCCP settings to not do Xvid and Divx and instead installed VLC to play that stuff.
I use my laptop to watch .avi stuff and my desktop to watch .mkv's and stuff with softsubs. I put VLC on there, too. Is there any way to get softsubs working right on VLC or do I just hope one day that it'll work.
Oh yeah, also... should I do the same thing with my desktop like the laptop...
Player: CCCP & MPC or VLC
because I can't run high-quality .mkv stuff without it skipping every once and a while.
Havve you ever thought that maybe it was the cccp codec pack that fucked your system. It did mine once.
I just want to add that word on the grapevine is that VLC has absolutely horrid soft-sub support and the developer flat out refuses to care. It's like IE back in the day. It's amazing it rendered anything at all.
Because of that, I know at least one group found an exploit that would fill VLC full of shit when the video was played using the soft subs. So, if you can help it, I don't recommend using VLC.
It crossed my mind... but the thought that it worked all the time until this giant problem knocked it out.
Pretty much though, I only use it for .mkv stuff with softsubs now. Even though it still kicks the ass of my desktop.
Edit: That's the main reason i don't want to use VLC... stupid subs start looking ugly instead of colored and fancy or whatever.
Sorry about the necro... and the double post....
Anyway... I put the CCCP on a new computer and the new computer can run anime encoded in h264 and all, but it can't do shit compared to the 950mhz.
8mg Graphics (integrated, for some reason... on Vista, no less).
Would changing the settings on this Vista computer change the performance of MPC which I'm using to watch stuff? Hell, would putting CCCP on my other computer (the other desktop, but decked out now... kinda) change anything?
The other one:
2.0ghz (AMD Sempron 3800+)
512 Nvidia 7600gs
=\ My 450mhz laptop hasn't failed yet... in terms of .avi.
say wha? What does the 950MHz's integrated graphics memory have for specs?
I would say that is your bottle neck. I mean... 8Mb... even if that's the memory on the die, then... well... actually that doesn't really matter. My Dad's computer I believe is 1Mb on the die, but it's 64Mbs via shared (which... you can tell it's not a real graphics card). Bottom line is your running shared memory, and it's really not a valid replacement for a dedicated video card in my mind. That's probably what's causing issue. Problem is, if you have integrated graphics, you rarely get a PCI-E slot or AGP slot to rectify the problem, and using straight PCI... well it still might be better, but, imo, your better off swapping the mobo for something with a graphics slot that will take the same processor and memory, etc. But hey, could be your settings. Try things out before you go nuts. I can never tell where the harmony fault lies in these integrated boards. I'm very quick to blame them. XD
I don't really know. You do have the pretty effects off in Vista (aero) on that computer, right? That might help... :(
Maybe throw the video (or a few for testing) on a flash drive and boot up a Knoppix Linux disk. See how it runs in MPlayer under that environment. At least that will give you some idea if it's your hardware or not.
As for the other computer, the 2GHz, throw CCCP or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack on that too, yeah. Set MPC's output to VMR9. Set the output to as high a specs as you can get out of it, like the 3d render with pixel shader 2 bilinear rendering (I can pretty much max out the output on my 128Mb ATI, 1.5GHz, 1 gig RAM, so you should be able to go all out). You might also try enabling FFDshow's post processing, but I don't know if that's going to help a whole lot, since you already have MPC doing the same thing. Might be worth a shot. Even without FFDshow, should look pretty nice. ^^
And hey, if it's not working, slowly reduce the output until it does work, and still looks nice.
