I think this should belong in the Playback help section.

But to get to the point. I would say your CPU isn't powerful enough. And to your question what is powerful enough my answer would be a Conroe. MHZ doesn't equal to performance anymore. a 2 ghz dual core would easily outperform your 2.4ghz P4.

It's how efficient a clock tick is now and a Conroe clock tick is more efficient than that of a P4. And therefore it doesn't need that much MHZ to do the same task as a P4. Not to mention that it is a Dual core.

Perhaps this thread contains some useful info that might help you.

Does the show you want to watch have an XviD version as well? If so, try that instead.

The problem isn't with the Matroska (.mkv) container, but the H.264 codec that was used to encode the program. H.264 is more highly-compressed, and thus has better resolution at the same file size as XviD, but it puts substantial demands on your CPU. I had a Celeron P4 before that wouldn't play H.264 files, but it would play XviDs just fine, even ones at 1280x720. Now I have a machine with 3.0 GHz Pentium D, which plays H.264 encodes just fine.

There's no solution to the problem of watching H.264 encodes other than buying a new computer.

Try CoreAVC. With your processor you MIGHT be able to barely squeeze yourself through (you're pretty much the cutoff line).

A video card has absolutely nothing to do with playing videos, unless the GPU has internal h264 decoding (which is only present in extremely top-of-the-line cards). It's the processor the one that does all the job.
