Windows 7: Amazing how good WMC is with some old hardware

03 Mar 2014   #1

Amazing how good WMC is with some old hardware

I put together some old stuff.
A PC off the street a Pentium 4 at 2.8 ghz 800 FSB with 1gb ddr333 ram.
An Nvidia geforce 6200 256 mb
80 gb WD800 drive
Windows 7 with WMC

And it plays recorded HDTV 1080 from the LAN smoothly, perfect.

The old video cards can do it good, IF the software is made to work like it should.

BUT, why cant this same card play online internet video the same way?
Is flash that badly inefficient?
