    I'm afraid the problem is that the linux graphics driver is not working well with your card. Let us hope someone with your graphics chip can share his/her experience! Otherwise your computer is powerful enough (as is also shown by the performance with Windows).

    My recommendation is to remove the "ATI/AMD Proprietary FGLRX Driver and/or Post-Update driver per the following guidelines:

    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...TI.27s_site.29

    Then download and install the latest ATI/AMD driver from the AMD website per the download instructions in the document referenced by the link above. I also have an ATI/AMD machine (laptop) and I can play HD videos no problem using ATI/AMD's driver (I am running both 11.10 and 12.04 using Unity).

    I almost forgot.....I convert ALL of my videos (whether they be avi, mpeg or mov to MP4 format and I can play any and all formats just fine.

    Thanks for the advise bcarlowise. I de-activated the proprietary drivers and downloaded/installed as specified in the link you provided. I think the driver install went OK, but after finishing, I had lost my 3D, Compiz, etc. Also tested the mp4 videos and they failed as well.

    I have reactivate the proprietary driver, but will be glad to run through this again if you think I might have forgotten a step.

    Thanks again and let me know...
