    Question Having trouble playing video

    My question is, do I need to upgrade my motherboard, or is there something I can do to tweak my OS or hardware to correct this??

    EPIA-800 C3
    1G Kingston PC/133
    Maxtor 40G 7200RPM
    Panasonic CW-8123-C Slimline Slot Loading 24X CD-RW/DVD
    Hiacom 204S GPS
    Belkin Bluetooth
    NetGear Wireless Dongle

    Microsoft XP SP2
    FrodoPlayer (Opening as XP Shell)
    Destinator 3

    The issue:
    *When playing Xvid/Divx the video will play slower than the audio
    *When playing DVD's the audio plays fine and the video will jump (through WMP)
    *When playing DVD's using PowerDVD6 (which uses 1/3 the memory of WMP) the video plays better, but still jumps while the audio clips
    *When running a CD emulator and DVD image on the hard drive the performance is a little better, but the above issues remain.

    ***** DMA if available on the IDE controllers has been enabled *****

    ***** Video Clips in Xvid/Divx will play fine as long as the file size is small *****

    I used to have the same problem myself. What I did to correct it was get a different codec (like Ace MegaCodecs Pack).. it was the divx codec that was not working properly that made the audio not sync up

    I'll try the new codecs and see if that helps me out any.
    I'm starting to wonder if the processor/onboard video is enough to handle DVD playback. Any ideas out there??
