VLC Player. I like it since it plays pretty much anything you throw at it.

Try changing the Video->Output modules to "Output video 3D DirectX" or "Output video to OpenGL", see if it helps... Or you just try changing until it doesn't stutter...

Thank you again for more recommendations. I'll try it as soon as I can as my wife is telling me I am neglecting my guests

I'll get back and report with the results as soon as I can.

Ok so here's the deal. I put OpenGL as the output, and it seems to have gotten rid of the stuttering. It does however run my CPU at about 45 -50% average for different movies.

Another thing: when I moved VLC Player over to one of my two monitors that run off the 3850, in less than 30 seconds Windows 7 said that my computer performance is running slow.

Then another warning came up and said Windows Aero is running out of memory, at which point it turned off the feature automatically. During this, I noticed my Ram usage was steadily rising from 1.8 GB where it usually is and making it's way up to 3 GB before Aero was shut off.

It seems to happen only when I play a movie on one screen, pause it, and then drag the window to the other screen running off the other video card and making it full screen. You see my RAM usage shoot up.

At this point I am happy that the stuttering went away. Is OpenGL inherent to more CPU usage? 40-55% is what I am averaging when playing a file. Honestly I can't remember how high it was with the original settings, it may have been that high all along. Thanks again though!

Nice, if OpenGL doesn't perform nicely, try DirectX (I use 3D DirectX), see if it makes any difference...
