I recently decided it was time to download a decent dvd codec for the old media player so I could start watching movies on my computer.

I went to Nvidia's website and got one of theirs, and everything is working fine except for a few minor issues.

1) The image looks somewhat grainy. I don't know if this is simply because I'm used to watching movies on a tv, and things just look different coming from a computer monitor, or maybe because you sit closer to a computer monitor than a tv, but I was wondering if there was anything that could be done to clear that up.

2) When the action in the movie starts getting hectic, and a sudden movement happens (I.E. a car zooms by, or a person makes a sudden abrupt movement) it's like the movie skips and jumps ahead a few frames like it can't keep up or something, what gives?

Computer specs...

-windows xp pro
-windows media player 11
-the codec is the Nvdia pure video decoder, (the bronze version... found here: http://www.nvidia.co...vd_decoder.html )
-Nvidia Geforce 8800 gts graphics card
-Monitor is a samsung 22 inch(widescreen) refresh set at 60 hertz
-DirectX version 9
-Drivers for the video card are current
-Windows updates are current

If anyone has even a slight fix for these, let me know. I will greatly appreciate it.
