I can't for the life of me get a smooth animation. It plays back with choppy motion. Even with just a cube moving in a straight line, 90 frames total. Other video's play fine, such as this blender tutorial that I downloaded. (720p version) ... cyUupgsQl0

These are my Blender (2.68a) settings:
HDTV 720p (1280x 720), 100 percentage scale for render resolution, 30fps, frame steps = 1, mpeg-4, also tried H-264
no raytracing, particles, audio, ect,
I tried various bitrates, 1000kbps up to 6000 kbps.
I tried playing backing with both VLC (2.0.6) and Quicktime (7.6.5)
I even switched my computer resolution to 1280 x 720 when playing it back and quit all other application including those in the notification area.

HP Laptop: Pavilion DM3
AMD Athlon Neo X2 Dual core Processor L335, 1.6 GHZ
4 gig ram, 500gb HDD
ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics chip.
Windows 7 home premium (64 bit)

Please help.
