I have been trying to solve this problem since the day I bought my Kodak Zi8. I have a Dell Dimension E520. Here are the complete specs: 2.8 Ghz Pentium D processor, 2GB RAM, VisionTek Radeon HD 2600 Pro graphics card, Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2. I also have a 21.5" HD monitor. I have been trying to edit my videos recorded with the Zi8 but cannot because of the video lag. I have tried playing the videos in VLC, Quicktime, and the software included with the camcorder (its called Media Impression). Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated!!

Have you updated the drivers? GPU acceleration for playing videos won't work unless you have one of the newer drivers.
