    Is this a streamed video clip from the internet or is it played from a cd-rom/hard drive?

    Slow video clips are due to poor data transfer rate, if you a slow processor or lack of RAM then this will cause it to be slow.
    its files off my computer, it used to play fine before i reset n wiped my computer totally.

    did you install all the right codecs (some videos need a couple) and graphics card drivers after you wiped computer?

    How much RAM do you have? If you are one of these idiots using XP with 64MB RAM then no wonder you're having problems.

    No just marvelling at this apparent technical impossiblity.
    its not impossible. there could be something wrong with the directx that could make it play upside down during overlay.

    If the correct codecs aren't installed the video just won't play at all (assuming Windows Media Player). Did you download Media Player 9 yet?
    yup i thought it wud fix the problem, it diddnt it was as upside down and slow as be4.

    Obviously - one could write a codec that did this. It was mentioned that this was a clean installation.
    so why did you say it was impossible?

    My comment on RAM is because so many people use XP with 64 or 128MB RAM. It may run fine but then they install loads of TSRs and eventualy the system just runs out of RAM.

    You need 256MB RAM in XP if you want total smoothness and you need 512MB for heavy graphics stuff.
