I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS alongside with Windows 7. It seems like the video quality does not good as in Windows 7. How can I solve this problem? Thank you in advanced.

  • First of all, why are you using version 12.04? You really should use at least 14.04. – QwertyChouskie Feb 25 '16 at 3:50
  • My hard drive is almost full (10GB free) so I think it's better to use 12.04. – Vincent Feb 25 '16 at 3:53
  • The minimum hard drive space requirements are about the same for 12.04 and 14.04, so I would recommend reinstalling with version 14.04 if it is a fresh install, or upgrading if it is not a fresh install. – QwertyChouskie Feb 25 '16 at 3:58
  • With 14.04 shall the video quality be improved? – Vincent Feb 25 '16 at 4:05
  • The video quality issue will probably either be fixed by 14.04 or be fixed by installing a proprietary driver (if you have Nvidia graphics). – QwertyChouskie Feb 25 '16 at 4:08

It seems like GNOME mplayer solves the issue.
