Just when I thought I had it beaten...

TV Says: Cannot initialize video. (Translation: Help, I can't find the drivers, even though they're right in front of me, help!)
DVD Player Says: Video Rendering Failure
DivX Says: Lag, lag, jolt, lag-whenever-you-make-my-screen-bigger-than-your-palm.
Windows Media Player Says: What he said.
Quicktime Says: Zipzipzip laaaaaag. Zipzipzipzipzip laaaaag zipzip.

Conclusion: There is something buggery about my stupidintegratedgraphicscard. (Quicktime is habitually on crack. The difference in behaviour comes as little surprise.)

This... is new. I don't think a reformat/harddrive switch/softwarewhatever has ever actually actively buggered up the hardware before.

Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, here, but I'm prepared to blame XP.

*sigh* I'll worry about it tomorrow.

(*selfwhap* You will *not*. You have actual work. School work. The TV isn't *that* important.)

But... but...

(*whap*)

*sigh* Going to bed.

DIVX?! BOO! Bad codec. Full of dirty thought. Downloading a divx codec is like picking up a crack whore in the down town eastside: Cheap and ready to give you diseases.

MPEG4 my friend. Divx is just a cutdown version, but MPEG4 is beautifully crafted, and solid, and doesn't come with herpies.

DivX has never given me any trouble before, and in any case the video in general's been fucked up since before I re-downloaded it. So.
