I'm trying to figure out how to optimize performance of some
large video files that will be played in a local html file on
Windows Vista. If I leave all Vista settings as is, the video plays
ok but is a little choppy during some of the panning sequences. If
I go ahead and change the Vista settings for best performance,
instead of dropping frames the panning sequences have some banding.
I'd love to be able to improve the performance without the banding
and I think there's something with memory management involved. Does
anyone have any ideas or experience with this? At this point the
lesser of two evils is the video playing a bit choppy during the
panning, because with the best performance settings the banding
makes you feel a bit like puking.
