I experienced some skippy playback issues with certain high-bitrate mkv compressed HD movies files, using the standard Windows 10 mediaplayer.
However, installing the latest k-lite video-codec pack(same as I’ve used for years…..just choose the “standard” package) from here https://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm
The performance was improved. Especially if you activate the “overlay-mixer renderer” in the mediaplayer classic player(that comes with the codec-pack). This setting is found clicking away using this path: View-Options-Output. And at the top in the “DirectShow video” dropdown selecter, choose the “overlay mixer renderer”. This will make the intel gfx take over more of the video processing and thus save up some overhead and power on the CPU.
Hope it helps somebody! 🙂April 16, 2017 at 10:14 pm #65417Chris GKeymaster

The M$ player was never good, I have always used MPC-HT and never needed the k-lite codec packs on Win 10, Both my HiBookPro and Hi12 were always silky smooth with any content so the Hi13 should be the same. VLC is also good but the GUI is a disaster when you come out of full-screen (windows player loves to go off screen) that they may never fix. Make sure you are running DShow video at the default EVR and set the VMR9 renderless for realmedia and quicktime in the output section. In the Internal filters section go to video decoder and set HW accl to DXVA2 (copy-back) and enabled all of the resolution and codec in HW accl options.
