Windows 7: Poor/Pixelated Video Issues.

27 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC 7100 - 64 Bit.
Poor/Pixelated Video Issues.

Greetings People! I recently installed a fresh Windows 7 RC 64Bit - Build 7100 on my Acer 5720ZG. Everything seems to be running pretty smoothly performance wise, besides watching Videos.

Main Spec:

Processor: Intel (R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T2310 @ 1.46GHz 1.47 GHz.
Ram: 4,00GB Crucial DDR 2.
Video Card: GeForce 8400M GS

Current Display Driver: <-- Supposed to be the latest.

I am currently using VLC and Media Player Classic, and when attempting to play MKV or AVI files the quality is just poor, it`s like running a game without any anti-aliasing. Choppy and sometimes Pixelated, specially when I forward the Video. I have tried with several different drivers, and it seems that the problems occurse with all of them, I have reformatted twice and the problem is still there, I doubt it is a codec issue, since I am using CCCP. Any tips would be appreciated! :--)

Give PowerDVD a try. It will play most MKV files if you change the name to make it an AVI file.

I'm not suggesting you always use it since you probably like the players you mentioned, but it is awesome. It would be a good test I suppose, to determine things from there.

Install k-lite. Way better than cccp and vlc. Also, set the output mode of MPC to EVR custom pres and the resize filter to bicubic ps=-0.6.

No luck with K-lite either, nor PowerDvD still poor quality. I suspect it`s something with the drivers, perhaps I should do a clean install and go with the latest Vista 64-Bit drivers? what do you guys think? Because I spent the whole night yesterday trying to solve this problem, and this problem never occured on XP. I have been noticing some not to drastically graphical issues as well, on the gadgets, screensaver etc. And I cant even manage to get a decent quality playing AVI files in WMP as I should, and there should actually not be any need to use any third part softwares to run a AVI file, that leaves me suspecting there is something wrong with the drivers that got updated automaticly by windows update.

Meh sort of frustrating hehe.. Just cant figure out what the cause is, if it`s not the GPU Driver nor Video codecs, what can it be? It`s certainly not overheating, the laptop is really cool.

Win Xp/7

Some sort of direct draw acceleration issue?
Run dxdiag and check display tab.
maybe reinstalling drivers may help or newest dx runtime
