Default Hardware Acceleration

Can someone please explain about this? I have a very good graphics card and a good monitor. Both settings in audio and my display are at full hardware acceleration and i never had a problem

Recently i noticed that this was also an option in my PowerDVD Application

It was disabled and when i enabled it i noticed that the quality got worse (i saw some "ghost" images after a sudden change of the scene or a quick movement)

Shouldnt enabling it make the video quality better?

I guess not

Default Re: Hardware Acceleration

i believe many times default off improves compatibility and application performance, meaning it may not look as good but has less issues.

update all your drivers if you have not already done so and see how the enable acceleration option behaves for you
