many thanks for the informative link. Actually, I did not take hardware acceleration into consideration. It turned out that my graphics driver
does allow for changes of hw acc. Amazing, however, that the same TV stick runs perfectly on the same machine, but with a different player on XP.
Remains sound. Why is even the start sound
of WMC stuttering? With Windows Media Player or alternative players, I never get this effect.
Thanks in advance for any further hints or explanations.
