Hi Daniel,

please tell us what CPU you have, and info about the video stream (level  
and ref frames). If you decode in Software, you'll need a CPU in the range  
of a 2.5 Ghz Core 2 (from my experience) for smooth 1080p playback. If you  
want to use graphics hardware accelerated decoding you should check out  
Media Player Classic: Home Cinema or install the Combined Community Codec  
Pack in favour of K-Lite. When the video is encoded properly (level  
settings and ref frames) MPC:HC should be able to use DirectX hardware  
acceleration on the Geforce 8800. Check out the MPC:HC homepage at  
http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/DXVASupport.html for more info about setting  
up DXVA.
