I use HandBrake . That alos makes the same thing easily , and nicely. As it uses the h264 codec, the output quality is also good there .

when you say blurry, what exactly do you mean, like it's out of focus, pixelated, etc....?
Maybe it's a Codec problem.
I watch 720P content on a couple of laptops, Lenovo with 1366x768 res as well as a Toshiba with a 1600x900 res and 720P looks sharp on both of them.
In fact I watch mostly 720P on my PC (1680x1050 and 1440x900) on either screen and it's very sharp.

Michael, it might help if you posted a screen cap of some 720p video playing on your laptop.

Here is the opening to a movie, print screened on VLC, but still looks the same on WMP.

To me it just looks a bit blurry to me.

I guess a way to tell if its blurry for you, would be to set it as your background.

That looks fine on my end. not blurry at all, just a tad soft.

As Zepher says just a bit soft but then it is a 1368 x 768 px image stretched to 1680x 1080 px on my screen so it's what I would expect. Being a still image we are looking at it in square pixel rendering whereas in a standard DVD movie format you would be looking at non-square pixel rendering.

I viewed it as a stretched 1366x768 desktop background and it had some ugly artifacting, didn't look good at all. I'm not a graphics expert but I don't understand why 1280x720 doesn't scale perfectly to 1366x768... they both have an aspect ratio of 16:9...

I just viewed it on 3 machines and it looks fine. Are you seeing dithering artifacts?

If you are setting it as your backdrop in windows, then maybe windows is recompressing it and making it look worse.

Ok so I redownloaded the image and reapplied it as the background, and now it looks fine.

I just realized if Michael uploaded a screenshot of a blurry paused video, there's no way it could look unblurry to us! Unless there is something wrong with his monitor, or our perceptions of blurriness are all unique... which is probably true...

My dad has a BenQ monitor that has a very strange artifacting issue, dark areas of a video have blocky texture pattern and it is not an issue with codecs, driver, or the video card, it's the monitor itself.
Maybe the OP has an issue with his screen, video driver, or codec.

How to merge 4 mp4 vids?
