Hi, i have an old laptop lying around and it has a DVD player on it i never really knew it had one till now. Its a low spec laptop but suits requirments in playing DVDs. I tried PowerDvd but its really jumpy playing sound and picture. I have got VCL player (videolan Player www.videolan.org) this programe plays the DVD fine but the picture is not jumpy but the colour just looks all out of place it's like the top half looks good but the bottom looks wrong in color. It is not the Dvd i have tried many. Please help or recommed a new dvd playing sofware which might work work. Thanks guys!
I have used both of those, they are good. But I like SMPLAYER, because it can play on my 2nd monitor while I surf the net on the other and it's doesn't cause the move to have a spaz. It has realtime colour adjustment, screen zoom and you can speed up and slow down movie playback.
Hi there, thanks will try that next. when i take a snap shop of the dodgy playing it does it but when i look at the still image it looks perfect not messed up, and i have tried playing it through a modern screen and still same problem! Cheers
Its somewhat likely that if it is a "low-spec" laptop it doesn't have enough memory to play DVDs smoothly - many low-spec laptops share main memory for graphics and I have found that increasing RAM can increase the quality of DVD playback significantly.
