I give up, I can’t think of anything else. For almost two years I’ve been struggling to watch movies in my PC with little to no success. It works fine with .MPEG, but when it’s .AVI files all goes to hell:
[li]The sound goes on fine, but the video in incredibly delayed. With some programs like Windows Media this just prolongs trough the whole movie, others like RadLight take a pause to re-adjust them, but this “pause” happens every three seconds. In both cases, the damn thing is unwatchable.
[/li][li]I’ve so far tried RadLight 3.03, Windows Media 9 and DivX 2.0.
[/li][li]I’ve been advised to use an older version of Windows Media, but I have no idea how to downgrade the one I have (WinMe 9.0).
[/li][li]A while ago I found a little jewel called Smooth Viewer 0.3 that was designed to watch .AVI on low-end computers. There was much rejoicing, but then I noticed that while it played some files just fine, others didn’t work. For example, of the .hack//LIMINALITY chapters gotten from BoxTorrnets, it plays 1,2 and 4 with no problem, but refuses to play 3 even though they all use the same codecs. The third file is NOT corrupted, as I can make it work (With the above mentioned issues) in any other player.
[/li][li]I have the ELISOFT codec pack and the DefilerPack. I’ve tried having one of them installed at a time or both at the same. No difference.
[/li][li]I’ve tried throwing down the quality options of the codecs (No Film effect, disabling post processing, etc) and using a lower screen resolution (I’ve even tried 640X800). The improvements are there, but entirely insufficient.
If you have any tips, ANY, no matter how out there they may be, throw ‘em at me. I am downloading FF: AC so you can imagine this suddenly became a priority. Thanks in advance.
