I have a pc with the following specifications:
From my old HP 6740c, put into a new case until I can afford better:
-Trigem Cognac motherboard (intel 810 chipset) - I use the onboard
sound processor instead of a sound card
-256 MB ram
-PCI Voodoo 3 2000
15GB main HD (~40% free)
80GB secondary HD (~95% free)
Benq DW-1620 DVD +/- R/RW
Windows XP Professional (SP2)
DVD related Software Installed:
-Nero OEM (showtime, etc.)
-AC3Filter codec (http://ac3filter.sourceforge.net/) - needed in order to get sound from Windows Media player 10
Now, my problem is with DVD playback - it’s jerky/choppy. I don’t care to use Nero for playback - I would like to use WMP 10. Nero played back with video and sound very but it was very jerky. WMP 10 played video smoothly but without sound; I installed the AC3 filter codec and got sound but the same jerky sound and video as Nero.
I have a feeling my sound (onboard) is not up to par, but that’s just an idea. I’ve played DVDs on much older systems (i.e., 450 Mhz K6-2, I think it had a PCI sound card that was based on the Sound Blaster, although it had AGP video), so then again…
If anyone could help, it would be much appreciated.
