    Try VLC media player.

    VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

    You won't need extra codecs:

    If you download the K-Lite codec pack, you'll be able to watch pretty much anything.

    you can play anything with the media player classic thats included with it.
    as an alternative, use VLC media player.

    Since his problems been solved and I can't be bothered to make a topic, does anyone have the tutorial site where it tells you how to tweak your utorrent to get the fastest speeds out of it? I don't want to use some random googled site just incase it mucks stuff up.

    I've found that on certain things (especially HD content), VLC tends to desynch quite often; as opposed to Media Player Classic with the CCCP which almost never desynchs.

    K-Lite codec pack is horrible. Stick with VLC for now.

    I'm going to have to go with Urza on this because I watch a lot of films at home and also TV series (Good TV is scarce in Egypt) . I notice this issue happening quite a lot.
    Reglar films in .avi format are usually fine but when watching HD TV shows, its best to use MPC.
