    When I play large WMV files, (3G 1920x1080) the video lags for a second every 2 seconds, and the memory usage for the media player goes up to over 1,700,000 K.

    This only happens on wmv files. I can play 8G 1020p high resolution mkv and mp4 files with no problem, but can't play hi res wmv files. Any ideas?

    These are my specs:

    K-Lite Codec Pack Full

    Windows XP SP2

    AMD Radeon HD 6850 - 1024MB

    ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5K SE Rev 1.xx
    Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
    BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 0401 07/19/2007
    Realtek Onboard Audio

    3328 Megabytes DDR2 RAM

    2.00 gigahertz Intel Pentium Dual
    64 kilobyte primary memory cache
    1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache

    1400.28 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
    100.02 Gigabytes Hard Drive Free Space

    Are you using internal filters for MKV and MP4? If so, I too noticed a marginal faster rendering. You might try to change the ffdshow video decoder's settings for WMVs, try by disabling it and see if it improves (ffdshow video decoder > codecs).

    Defragmentation can also improve performance :)
