    Its probably because the video is not a full screen sized video so you are streching it, thus making it out of focus, unless your watching a DVD. Are you watching a movie on your computer or a DVD. If its on your computer its most likely you are streching and losing the quality. If its a DVD, there may be a setting to turn up the quality?

    Regards,

    Google VLC media player! Get that it supports all types of codes, divx, quicktime, RM, mpeg, wmv, mp3, wav, ect ect ect ect, one of the best media players.

    danswebs makes a good point, no matter how good a media player you use, if the video is originaly encoded with a low quality setting, or a small resolution, when you enlarge it to whatever multiplyer/size, you will also enlarge the pixels as well... even if the media player does know how to compensate for it somehow..

    so that brings it to the question.. what type of video are you trying to watch? dvd or files (like mpeg for example) etc... and what is its resolution/quality?
