Actually I found, after buying a Canon compact that shoots HD, that even my few-years old Pentium D@3.4Ghz, (video: Radeon 9200) was not able to smoothly play 1080p with common F/OSS players. So I took to shooting 720p, which looks about as good, at least when shot by that not-so-high-end camera, and the files are smaller.
I wonder where the problem was. Nonoptimal codecs? Display? How much does modern 1080p playing rely on the video card smarts?
