There are various video players available on the net. And some of them are very good for general use. But when it comes to playing a high definition movie such as 720p or 1080p, then most of them fail. But from my experience I can say that there is a good codec pack available that can solve this problem. 'K-Lite Codec Pack' contains many audio and video codecs, filters and tools that let you run high resolution movies on your PC and that too very smoothly.

K-Lite Codec Pack

K-Lite Codec Pack is a set of DirectShow filters, audio/video codecs and tools which lets you play most of the well known as well as less known video formats. K-Lite Codec pack also installs a movie player for playing movies using the given codecs.

K-Lite Codec Pack is easy to install and easy to use. From my experience, I can say that it is the best solution if you can't run movies smoothly on your PC. Also the best thing is that K-Lite Codec Pack is free of cost.
