Offloaded Tivo content playback on my PC has jitter

Okay, my issue is sort of Tivo related, but not exactly........... I am posting this here because I trust the knowledge of the people on this website more than anywhere else, so here goes

Previously, I had a Dell dual core computer with 64 bit Windows 7 and a good Nvidia video card. I could take my high definition Tivo recorded content and convert these files into mpegs and this old PC could play those files easily.

I recently bought a new quad core computer with windows 8. It is supposed to be much more powerful than the old PC. However, the new one has difficulty playing the exact same files that the old computer was able to handle easily. The new PC gives me jitter.

I have tried to figure this out through the process of elimination....

1 - the video card on the new machine is a Radeon 7770. When I first started using this new PC, the driver that was installed was from september 2012. I updated the driver to the april 2013 release from the manufacturer website. This did not fix the problem.

2 - I have tried putting the HD files on various different hard drives. I have tried playing them on an internal drive and also a couple of different external drives. This did not fix the problem.

3 - I have tried a couple of different video players(MPCHC, VLC, etc.). This did not fix the problem.

I am having a couple of other problems with this new PC. But I would like to tackle this issue that I just described here first.

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

My guess is that it’s a codec problem. Your mpeg files may be using different codec’s for converting and playback of your video files. Not all mpeg codec’s are the same and you may need to download some different ones to make the playback work. Google for “mpeg codec”. The trick is to find one that works with both your video converter and player.
