    Hello all,

    I am running a newly built win 7 64 machine dual core pentium E5800 with GMA X4500 graphics. I Need some advice on players on what I am seeing now.

    When playing a DVD (both optical drive and ripped file structure) video quality is poor. Specifically, I am getting whats called clay face and blotchy type artifacts.

    So far all of the players I have tried; WMP, WMP-HC,TMT5,VLC, do this except for one..KM-Player. What is KM player doing different in terms of processing the video?

    Is this a codec problem or something else? Why is the quality the way it should be when using KM-Player?

    Unfortunately I do not like the KM-Player interface and user controls donít appear to support WMC remote functions.

    I would like to use TMT5 or WMP-HC in my final build but the video quality needs to be excellent.

    Thx for any comments

    The real problem is the graphics card's drivers. You can work around it by changing the output device in the players. for example, in MPCHC use View -> Options -> Playback -> Output... try the different DirectShow output devices. In VLC it's Tools -> Preferences -> Video -> Display->Output...

    Before making any changes the first thing one should do is check with system manufacturer for updated gpu drivers ... it may simply be the underlying fault.

    The first thing I did was make sure the driver was updated. Intel GMA X4500 HDMI out there should be no problem for this chipset to handle basic DVD play payback. Connected to 1080P display. BD files and discs play fine with cyberlink and tmt5. Why standard DVD's using these players has the clay face type look is baffling?

    Yes. With MPCHC you can see which renderer is in use by right clicking on the window and hovering over Filters. You can the select any of the filters to change any internal settings.
