I recently brought a Samsung laptop with an i3 processor and HD R 4000 Graphics. The problem seems to be whenever I run anything that isn't youtube's hd quality, it seems to come up as looking rather grainy. I'm a complete newbie to windows 8; is there something I'm missing here? Some way I can upgrade the graphics or improve the quality? I have an NC110 netbook which has better quality video than my new laptop does (admittedly, it is 5" smaller than my new laptop)....
What OS and what player do you use? Do you use full screen or the native screen streamed? If you're playing a DVD, then what DVD software are you using? I don't think it's the resolution or the monitor's fault if YouTube HD plays OK.
Oddly enough, when trying to play from the BBC iPlayer, there is no hd option! Which is strange, as it shows well enough on my netbook.
rdave13, the os is Windows 8; the software I use is gom player, though I have tried both videoLAN player and the native player (whose name escapes me at the moment...) DVDS are played through VideoLAN player.
I generally use full screen, though I have tried the smaller native screens too, without too much difference.
Guys - still experiencing grainyness on videos played through either native player or downloaded player (range from gom player, vlc player, and CyberPower 12. Any advice from those more knowledgable on such issues more than I am, would be much helpful!
