Default Netbooks Handle HD Content; Film at 11

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.pcpro.co.uk/blogs/2010/02/18/how-to-play-hd-video-on-a-netbook/' target='_blank'>http://www.pcpro.co.uk/blogs/2010/0...o-on-a-netbook/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Netbooks aren&rsquo;t famed for their high-definition video playing prowess, but if you&rsquo;ve got about $10 and a few minutes going spare, there is a way to enjoy high-definition trailers and videos on your Atom-powered portable."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1266590399.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>If you cannot wait until the next generation of HD capable netbooks become available, or do not want to upgrade, there are some options for people looking to playback HD content on the wee little babies.&nbsp; Of course, there are a lot of limitations and restrictions, but after some effort, you can turn your netbook into a fairly competent media player.&nbsp; The solution presented by PC Pro UK is also not the only one.&nbsp; There are alternatives such as other codec packs or VLC which offer comparable performance.&nbsp; The biggest downside?&nbsp; This does not apply to HD content on the web.&nbsp; It will only work for local content that is encoded in certain ways.&nbsp; It looks like you will have to bite the bullet if you want your YouTube in HD goodness.</p>
