bad quality video playback..??

Hi all........

has anyone noticed a grainy effect with video playback through ''7'' yet..??, i cant seem to null out the problem.....its fine while playing DVDs, but AVI & other formats look pretty terrible.

i thought a lack of codecs could of been the problem, but its not..??, strange really, its not a graphical problem (gaming is fine), or codec related.....

im using MPC, but i get the same results with other media players....

thanks....

I haven't notice anything out of the ordinary but I don't play that many videos on 7 though.

No problems here with MPC and avi, do you have any shaders on?

No issues here either. Could be the way you VC is setup for video playback.

thanks all....... it appears i cracked it

the new version of MPC ''x64 cinema'' plays all files flawlessly, it must be codec related but for the life of me i couldn't null out the problem with different packs..??


all is well on the ''7'' front again......

Well I know this topic is old, but since I see some of you had the same problem I am having right now I was wondering if there is anything else I can do.

I've tried the MPC x64 cinema because of skunksmash's suggestion but it look's as bad as it was when I played on VLC Player.

Can anyone help me with this?

Tks!

When you say it looks bad what do you mean?

well I could say that a 720p res video looks like a low res.

It's like there was translucent square on screen

That would be an easy way of explaining it.
