    When I try to play the 720p or 1080p version of trailers in My Trailers, the trailer starts and then becomes very jerky and stops and starts.

    My other files (.avi, .mkv, DVD) all seem to play just fine.



    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    I have a high speed cable connection and I've watched the same trailers on the Apple website at 1080p without a problem, so I don't think that connection speed is the problem.

    Any other thoughts?

    Of course it can be the problem! Just because you have a high speed internet connection doesn't mean that apple delivers the bytes at the speed you need...
    The player on the website probably has high priority access to the file and also pre-caches quite a lot to avoid your described problem.
    And just to avoid the next question, try OnlineVideos where you can set a pre-buffer percentage to work around it.

    This will be due to the connection, just start the trailer and pause for 10 seconds for it to buffer and I bet it'll then be fine. I can play back 720p without pauses, but 1080p stops and starts unless I allow it to buffer a bit first.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I just reinstalled WIN 7 and MP with SAF 5.0.

    I haven't installed online videos yet, does it do trailers?

    Thanks,
    Brewtal
