for some reason it doesn't work. when i do that my player starts to lag and then freezes. Is there something I'm doing wrong?
There's a slight possibility that your PC doesn't "support" HD videos, it depends on your Graphic Card, and your CPU for the most time. So, if your PC is a little bit older than 5 Years it could be a problem, otherwise you should try other videoplayers and/or codecs.
SM-Player - Try this one - the player has some problems by replaying the subtitles, but if your PC is older than that, it will mostly play the HD files.
