Ok, I have the above laptop, 2gb of ram and running windows 7 pro. I have plenty of golf clips from my phone, and they're choppy when played, and the sound is often ten seconds behind. This is rather annoying as reviews said that the laptop would cope with HD video fine.
Thoughts? I understand 4gb will no make no difference as the OS is 32bit? Using VLC is even worse which was previously invincible to playing most media.

Is this a hardware issue?

Typical clips are 1280x720 and the bit rate is 10697 kbits per second if that means anything or helps.

Really depends entirely what video format the clips are in. Since you haven't said the only assumption one can make is that the GPU isn't performing hardware acceleration and the since the CPU is pretty low spec it can't cope with software deciding.

I thought I'd update this. As I googled it and found my own thread! The video type is
mp4 video/x-x-hx-avc1, resolution 1280x720 and bitrate of 12063 kbits

I presume a solid state drive will do nothing to improve it, that it's the cpu or graphics card that handles this sort of thing?
