Default Problems with WM, Cmedia Audio and Intel P4 with HT

Hi I was wondering if anyone knew why this is happening:
For some reason windows media player started jumping like a record player.
After an hour of troubleshooting, because I have a Hyperthreading processor, I had to force Windows Media player to use 'CPU0'.
The sound worked fine using both CPU 0 and 1 for quite a while, but I had the same problem when I was running WIndows Server 2003 on this machine (Now running WIndows XP Home). Then sudenly right in the middle of a MP3, it started again. I disabled hardware accelleration and it worked fine. Then after a bit more playing i found it worked fine when I didnt allow WM to use CPU 1 in the Task Manager/Processes thingy.

Does anyone out there know why this is happening, and what the possible solution is?

i dont have a clue, but i can guess y.. cause WMP sux.huge.hairy.gonadz (except i hear wmv streaming format is good for streaming, but i dont use any of that crap)

for audio..

for video google for...
- media player classic
- Zoomplayer
- The core media player
- BSplayer

any of those are good, it comes mostly down to personal preference... i prefer Zoomplayer.
