    What resolution was the avi file?
    and what resolution is your monitor on?
    If the video has to be stretched out to fit a larger surface area, the quality will lessen. Try a DVD or larger resolution video and see if it is still bad quality.
    If so try different video drivers maybe.

    That's just natural. Your stretching the video over twice the size of it's resolution. It's called "destructive scaling".

    The larger the resolution, the larger the file size is going to be. Since many downloaders don't like to wait very long to download things or use up their ratio, be it a torrent user, it's harder to find such resolutions.

    Try this file - https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/f-tv-...highlight=rome

    If you don't utilize newsgroups, then I suggest getting an invite to x263.eu or something, and start downloading 12-15 GB movies.

    I read recently in a PC mag that playing games in the higest resolution is more demanding on both the cpu and the Video Card. Also if your game is not able to take advantage of your dual cpu then basically its running on just one and you don't get the benifit of dual core. If you set any game to 600x800 res then you can turn everything up all the way and play the game then increase the resolution a step at a time to find where the game comes unglued.

    An lcd monitor has a native resolution you need to set for basic operation, but that setting is different to setting a game to run in a different resolution than the lcd native one. A higher resolution has more pixels per inch on the screen and takes more horse power to display.

    What player are you using? Media player classic always plays smoothly for me.
