Sorry, that P 3 doesn't have the chops for this.
I found DVD playback became viable as we passed 500 and up MHz on the p3. 450 is just too low to expect this to work all the time.
If it did work in the past my bet it was with older versions of software. (yup, wmp9!)
There is no fix planned to address this.
reply to P3 doesn't have the chops for this.
I dont have a DVD player in my PC. I was talking about VCD files only. I could un-install WMP10 yesterday and revert to WMP9, but the problem continues with all video files.
I was able to play all types of video files without any problems a few weeks back on the same machine. Something is causing CPU overload (CPU usage becomes 100% as soon as a video file is played) causing the video playback to be choppy.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
Sorry. Same answer for VCD.
No fix is planned to support such hardware. Go back to what worked.

I have a P 3 at 1GHz which I clocked down to 500MHz.
Your fixes do not work.
Be sure to note what hardware we are talking about.
Is this an issue of OS?
Is this an issue of OS? Earlier I had Windows 98SE and Win ME and I never faced this problem for so many years. It is only after I changed OS to WinXP that I have started facing this problem.
