If VLC worked it should have continued, are you using the latest version? Perhaps uninstalling it and re-installing it would help.

Have you updated your video drivers?

I might be mistaken Derek, but I believe this topic has more to do with the OP wanting to watch a HD movie compressed with (I presume) h.264 at a reasonable frame rate with 8 year old hardware.
