Video Playback in Windows 7

Hi, after installing windows 7, i realized that a lot of the video players dont give the same performance as they used to in winXp or Vista.
For example, PowerDvD 6, or VLC Player, dont give GOOD quality video output,As if the video was pixelated.The Same video plays better in windows media player 12.
Does Ani1 Face similar problems? and is there a way to make the players work well again?

You might want to check that you have the latest graphic drivers for your video card as well, that could help your issues.

Get used to it. I have been posting this same problem for a couple months with no answer other than trying different 3rd party codecs and tweaking which ones are used for each type of video file.
