The video was some pirate copy. I happened to have the DVD and it played just fine on the same machine. What to do?
Lately with Windows Media player I have a ton of trouble with movies not matching their audio and video up right. It's not the files because i can play the same file twice, and one time the video will be ahead, and the next the audio will be ahead. I think it does it on lower quality videos but I have the most problem in newer movies that are real high quality. I guess "HD movies" like the halo 3 tv commercial. I try to skip around in it and shut down everything else on my computer but it still does it. And it's choppy. I wouldn't think my computer would have problems with that, it plays everything fine. Even Battlefield 2142, so i just don't see why it wouldn't be able to handle a movie.
