    Ok what format is the Movie, eg AVI, MPEG etc...

    Your comptuer specs...
    1, if you have Windows XP, Right Click My Computer, Properties, it will tell you there....
    If you dont, http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html and download and install that program. It will then display a HTML file with all your comptuer specs.

    Ok what you are referring to is call audio-video desynchronization and could potentially be a problem with either the movie file itself or that your computer isn't up to the task of playing those files smoothly (or both)

    To determine your system specs; goto Start --> Run, Type dxdiag and click OK. Your CPU (processor), Memory and DirectX version is listed on the System tab. Your video card specifcations can be found under the Display tab under Name and Chip Type. Your soundcard is listed under the Sound tab in the Name field.

    Using programs like AVICodec (http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/codecs_and_filters/avicodec.cfm ) or GSpot (http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_tools/gspot.cfm ), you can determine specific codecs required for individual movies. For a general configuration which should allow you to play virtually any movie you come across, visit http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/48608
