Here's a guide on the settings I use so that my Asus T101MT Netbook is a formidable video playback device capable of watching 720P video content.
First of all you're gonna need to download a few things
Note that this is for playing local video files, and not YouTube, Hulu or what not. That said just remember this mantra before starting.
Software Decoding Of Video Data Is VERY Processor Intensive And I'm Trying To Do It On My Wee Little Netbook!
By taking note of this, remember that if you're going to watch 720P video on your netbook ensure that
First off we'll deal with the settings in Media Player Classic, open the Options window (View->Options)
From the left item list, select Output, Under DirectShow Video, select EVR Custom Pres, if you want to you can select Nearest Neighbour as the resizer which gives a SLIGHT speed boost by sacrificing video quality.
Next select the Internal Filters item on the left.
Under Transform Filters find H264 and uncheck the options, this will get Media Player Classic to use the newer FFDShow codecs installed in the system instead of it's internal one.
Click on the OK button to close the Options dialog, and then RESTART Media Player Classic.
Open your H.264 content and then as it is playing check your tray icons.
You should see the FFV icon which indicates the FFDShow codec is in use, if not, double check on the Internal Filters and make sure you've disabled the built in H.264 codecs.
These settings work VERY well on my Asus T101MT, there are some problems that I haven't solved though
That's my settings for my Netbook, and it might work for yours so try it out!
