    I've been getting into One Piece currently up to 267, most of the vids are either mp4 or avi. I've been having no problem up until 267, what happens is, I play it in vlc media player, real player, divx player, and it takes up like 99 cpu and my cpu usage hangs on 100%, the video becomes incredibly laggy and unwatchable, this also seems to be the same with the others that I have downloaded (267+) I'm assuming it's the videos being corrupt, just incase, I updated my video card drivers but this is still occuring, I can watch any other videos including episode 266 of One Piece flawlessly, so my question is: Is this fixable or is my one piece source failing at providing working downloads? (and yes, my computer has no viruses)
    Thanks in advance

    Try from another source. If it's the same results, at least you'll know it's something wrong with your computer.

    What processor do you have?

    In VLC, open an old video that plays right and go to Tools - Codec Information, take a screenshot. Then do the same with one of the videos that runs crappily.

    The Bad Shot!

    The Good Shot!
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Processor: AMD Athlon? 64 Processor 3000+

    Seems all the corrupt videos open up in a big vlc whilst the working ones open in a small vlc. (In the image, I just changed the size.)

    That's because the "bad" ones are a higher resolution, the video is literally bigger.

    The "good" ones are SD video, and the "bad" ones are HD. Your computer's not fast enough to play that encoding they're using, unfortunately. Mplayer is a light player, that may play without being as choppy, but other than that you need to seek out normal-quality clips.

    Is there anyway to lower the quality, make it SD instead of HD?

    you could try re-encoding it with something like mediacoder but you would probably lose a lot of video quality.

    And it would probably take a while with your CPU.

    Lowering the resolution would involve running it through a converter and take a long time per episode, just get standard rips like zizer showed an example of.

    If you aren't planning on switching sources you can try cutting down some of the background processes and services, my old PC has a AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor 3200+ with an intergrated SiS760 and it can get smooth 1080p playback with a bit of tweaking.

    I just found out that alot of the episodes can only be downloaded with a file format of .mp4. I suppose I will have to convert them because I can't get it to work on my shitty pc...any other suggestions though?

    Try CCCP and CoreAVC

    The 'bad videos' seem to use h264 which is more cpu demanding.

    Also how is your graphics card?

    Well the first link gives a downlaod for DXVA checker, Run it, and compare it to what is shown, else give a screenshot.
    CoreAVC should work on anything.

    Thanks so much, just downloaded a crack for CoreAVC and then after installing it, I tried running the .mp4 on windows media player and it worked flawlessly, on vlc it still does the same but WMP is good for now, thanks!

    You can't pay 9.95$ for it?
    I suggest http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/ instead of WMP if you want.
