got this netbook in today after hearing that it could run hd video with no problems. upgraded ram to 3GB and formatted to windows 7.

even hd youtube videos stutter, and any hd mkvs are unwatchable. any ideas?

You need to use a graphics accelerated media player like power dvd. Also make sure you have the latest graphics driver for your computer.

You have to wait for Flash 10.1 to come out because then flash will be GPU accelerated. It is in beta right now.

it's been in beta for at least a month since I've first heard about it. It's beta is available somewhere but I could never figure out how to (find)install it.

this is long overdue for a final since netbooks have no cpu power.

as for hd mkv's try mpc-hc that's what everybody suggests and don't install codec packs or you need more help.

mpc-hc is performing worse than the mpc that came with CCCP

flash 10.1 is working great for youtube, still trying to solve the video issue

ok so WMP will play my 720p mkvs flawlessly due to hardware acceleration. powerdvd doesn't support mkvs, and i can't figure out how to make MPC use hardware acceleration. its not THAT big of a deal, i could just use WMP, but i'd prefer to use MPC if possible.
