Just hoping someone can confirm something which unfortunately I think I already know. I invested in a rather pricey camera recently which does 1080p, 50fps video recording. I have of course been eager to see how clips look on the bigger screen, only to find they seemingly bring my ageing laptop to its knees.
Rather dated specs are...
Centrino Duo T2600 2.16GHz
Should it be playing this level of content normally or is this camera going to ultimately cost me more than I bargained for? The annoying thing is I've SO nearly got it running - not sure if anyone's had any experience with SMplayer/Mplayer but with a bit of tweaking I've managed nearly-smooth playback, the video is just slightly slower than the audio. Any other player basically shows me a slideshow.
Any tips & tricks to improve this would be great but I obviously know you can't polish a tu*d!
