why does the new WMP suck so much? :-(

So I downloaded the new version of WMP tonight, and suddenly any video I play under it runs really choppily. What the hell is that about?

Videos ran fine on the previous version of WMP on my computer. I have XP Home, PIII-450, 512mb memory, and a 64mb Geforce2.

Any such problem for anybody else and the new Windows Media Player?

Yes, WMP 9. Pretty much every video I run with it it is really choppy and slow. What are your PC specs?
