I am developing a background music system that plays up to 4 different video clips using 2 dual head video cards. I have an I5-750 2.66GHz with 4GB Mem ( 2.96 Useable ) , The video cards are NVidia GForce 8400 GS. The system is brand new and is running Windows
7 Home Premium.
The problem I am experiencing is that the video is choppy or stuttering almost like its dropping frames or something. Occasionally I will also get tearing.
I am only running 3 zones on monitors 2,3,4 with zone 1 on monitor2 and so on... The same effect happens if i scale it down and only run 1 zone on monitor 2. As a side note I have each zone running in its own app and therefore its own UI thread, and the
CPU for each zone averages anywhere between 10-17%
I have tried both DivX and Mpeg with the same result. I have FDShow installed and have tried setting the merit fron 'do not use' to 'very high'
