I know the video topic has been talked about a bit, but I haven't seen anything the exact same.
I have a bunch of avi files, just got the paid version of mobile HD, but every video is choppy....wondering if maybe my surface is acting up? I haven't installed more than 5 apps, and Its only a few days old, all windows updates installed

Length 2 hours
Frame width 640x 272
Data rate 646
I know this is a totally different device, just sucks that it plays fine on something like the galaxy tab 2 7'
Plays laggy in both programs, and every other movie I have with similar size is the same thing

either an app or file problem. Nothing should prevent smooth playback of that size file on a surface. Do you have any other files to test? How about a different format. Encode that video as a wmv and see if you have any issues.

What format are your movies in? .wtv,.m4v, .mkv, avi?
I have had good luck using handbrake and converting some files in .mkv to .m4v using the iPad profile in handbrake. I then copied the file over to my surface via Wi-Fi ad it plays splendid. For .mkv I use the mobile HD app. The latest version now supports DTS audio and I have been able to stream them off my WHS machine wirelessly just fine as well.

Mobile HD app has played every file I have thrown at it even ones as big 7-10 GB and there has been no stuttering. A low res AVI should be no problem, do you get the same result in Videos app as that should be able to play avi files as well.
