I have a HP 8540w notebook with a ATI FirePro M5800 graphic card and have tried several drivers: the default one, the proprietary one (available through the additional driver dialog) and ati-driver-installer-11-8-x86.x86_64, but all them seem to have real difficulties playing hd-videos without any stuttering. Also, hd-video playback does work well on Windows 7. What driver should I use? It seems my graphics card is a pretty rare one.
