    might be the old (I assume since xp) computer struggling to playback the high definition footage. Single core and some dual cores struggle with 1080p.

    Yes, is it an XP computer, I have a Win 7, that can't play them either, just had somebody sent me up with Win7 Desktop, with correct video card and a 25" monitor, showed him what the Highest Quality was on P3S, all my problems went away. Well kind of.......
    $1000.00 bill, but it works great..

    I've been using this media player on all the windows OSs for at least a decade. It plays almost anything and it's free.

    Tried it. It's good but still flickes a little on a fast pan. My computer isn't powerful enough. I think. At the end od the video it seems to stop until I drag the indicator back a bit.
