Post by: Deadheadjoe on April 14, 2015, 08:00:35 AM
Ok every one, my laptop is old it is a lenovo and it origianly had windows 7 on it. But my question is why have I had such bad luck getting 1080p movies to run right on my laptops is there a special codex that I need or script I need to write to get it to play right?

There are plenty of people around who are willing to help, but they can't help if they have no idea about the system you are running on. Hardware specs would be most helpful.

Not sure if this is right or not
Lenovo - B575-1450A5U Laptop,AMD E-Series Dual core 1333MHz Processor,15.6" Display,4GB Mem,320GB

I download a lot of movies most of them 720p, But every now and then I have come across some that are 1080p and they want to act like a scratched up dvd by skipping a lot. I have tried to download the same movie from different sites and users and still get the same results. This only happens when I download 1080p movies.

We'll need to know the video card/chipset in that model.

What happens if you try to play an actual DVD?  Same thing, or is the video fine?

Is it possible that the downloads are just bad?  Can you take the file to a different computer and test it there to see if same thing happens?
