I use VLC, and have noticed that with my AMD quad core 3.2 with 8 gigs of ram that this thing shows a hiccup or two every 4-5 A77 videos I play.
I guess this extra bit has me needing 10Krpm hard drives?

VLC is limited to software decoding, and will only use one CPU core. So, it's well possible that taken alone, a single core of your AMD CPU is a tad tight and causes it, likely when something else is trying to use it while you're playing. As some have already said, try the latest Windows Media player, as it uses hardware acceleration it should work with no problem.

Drive performance is by far not a problem with compressed video.
