Quicktime playback issues in windows 8


Active Member
For some reason quicktime files are choppy and jittery during playback in Windows 8.
I have the latest Quicktime installed with no other codecs.
I tried playback in the quicktime player as well as in adobe products (premiere, after effects, etc.).

Here's a preview of what the playback looks like:

The same rotating star video plays fine on my windows XP machine.

Any ideas?

apologies for the late reply..

I did check with the compatibility center and Quicktime is deemed compatible (certain versions at least). Some tips can be found here:

Also are you running with the latest driver updates?
