Is there an issue with my graphics card?


Established Member
I recently bought an Acer Aspire Netbook D150 and last week got a new pocket HD camcorder (Toshiba S10) but i have the following issues:

The recording from the camcorder is in .MOV format which is to be played in Apple Quicktime. The movie clip (30MB) in full HD 1080 recording stops after 3 seconds of playback. This is even after the file has been transferred from memory card to the netbook.

The clip is then uploaded to Youtube and runs fine in HD and in full screen.

Is there a problem with the Quicktime or with the Graphics card?

The netbook is running Intel GMA 950 graphic chip set.

Any help/suggestions?

There's no problem, the netbook is simply not powerful enough to play Full HD video. Youtube is a far lower resolution - I think the 'HD' clips are 640x480.
