I recently installed the 6801 release of Windows 7, and I'm pretty impressed with it, except for one issue:
Videos looks really bad. :(
DivX and High Definition .mkv files looks considerably worse than on Vista. It doesn't matter whether I use WMP or VLC Player.

I just wanted to hear if anyone else noticed this, or if I'm the only one having this problem. :unsure:

1) Update your Video Card Driver.
2) Make sure yo have all updates on Windows Update
3) Try other players
4) Check your disk

I have the newest Catalyst drivers installed (the Windows 7 preview ones), it's fully updated, and as I've said, I've allready tried VLC Player as an alternative to Windows Media Player, and they look the same. The files are on my harddrive.

You aren't having any problems with video files?

Absolutely none what so ever.
My video is perfect.

Its something on your side.

1) Try re-installing or double checking your driver.
2) Re-download the files
3) Try ANOTHER alternative

Try Media Player Classic and/or different video codecs.



All these damn talks about Win7 make me want to get 1 for myself, but I'm afraid it might ruin the experience when it comes out.

It's a pretty decent PC. The gfx card is a ATI HD 4850. But I guess I should reinstall the drivers for it.

Videos run smooth enough, it's just so damn grainy. :cry:

If I could resolve this, I might just hang on to Windows 7 as my primary OS. Even games are running pretty good. :D
