    I watch movies on my 2nd monitor, when I do I can notice stuttering in the movie and in regular windows moving them around. If I move media player classic over to my primary monitor all stuttering goes away.

    What would cause this? If I disable Aero, the stuttering disappears.

    I'm lost. I am thinking of not using 2 monitors because of this.

    Thanks! :)

    Only one screen can use a hardware video overlay with Aero enabled (Aero steals one effectively).
    My solution is to make the playback screen the default screen.
    You can also make the video player disable Aero when it is run.

    How do you make the video player disable Aero?

    Create a shortcut to it and select its properties.
    Under the Compatibility tab, tick ' disable desktop composition'.
    Run it from the shortcut.

    I used to get that under XP, but never in 7

    Do you have the latest MPCHC from here ?

    It does it in 7 for sure.
    Its sometimes not so easy to notice, but once you are used to pure smoothness (like with frame interpolation), its hard to accept less.
