I have several HD videos that play fine on my laptop, but one a friend gave me rescently just freezes continually.
Usually I use VLC without any problems, and it plays fine on his PC using VLC, mine just seems not to be able to handle it.
I have a few 1080 ones and 720 ones, but this one says 900p?
Is there anything I can change to improve VLC's performance?
The file is an mkv, frame size is 1600X900, 25 frames per second, H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10)(avc1) 40 min and 1.2GB.
It just doesn't seem to be able to decode the file fast enough to play it back.
Are there any other players that might give better performance?
