So I play blurays on my PC then hook it up to my HDTV via HDMI. it works pretty well for the most part but certain areas like every minute or so it kinda stuttters and skips a lil bit.
 
Anyone have any solutions on how to stop the stuttering and skipping? I use VLC Player to play the blurays

Whoever gives me a correct answer gets a mystery prize

You might need a better codec pack. Or a better processor. I dunno, I have the same problem and I havent done anything about it yet

VLC has issues sometimes with playing HD content. It has to do mostly with CPU usage and your processing speeds. DO you have another player you can use to play your HD content? MAc or PC?

yup. run a quick defrag or eliminate some junk off your desktop for a quick fix just to see if that helps. if not its due to insufficient graphics processing.

I sometimes get that problem
I switch up my player to windows media player for some HD content and it runs smooth. I dunno why VLC won't play some HD content properly.. but maybe try that

Cause Yuku is like that kid who you think should be in the 'special' class in high school, but has just enough hand-eye coordination to stay with the other kids while he licks glue off his hand in the back of the room.

Thanks for that player link

Get a better laptop. My brother hooked his laptop to our tv and it works flawlessly. He built his laptop as a desktop replacement though, so its really powerful. Whenever he plays games or BDs, everything runs smoothly.

I have a question, probably a dumb one.

But can I go just purchase any cable to connect my laptop to my HDTV? Or would it have to be made specificly for my laptop? IE. A Compaq laptop would need a Compaq cable.
