    Hey guys,

    Ever since I saw the Speed Racer Trailer in HD, I've been in love with it. Not sure how good the movie is going to be, but in HD, this trailer in my opinion is a piece of art.

    I had been trying to download it (I don't have Quicktime Pro) and finally figured out how. I did a search for one of the later quicktime trailers for Speed Racer that I knew. "speed_racer-tlr3_720p"
    And came across this web page:
    http://www.truemovie.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=20868&sid=2b98005f011b1b2e609c0716eb9d8ab0

    And from here, I downloaded the trailer I wanted (the first one):

    Along the way, I came across this trailer:
    http://pdl.warnerbros.com/wbol/us/speedracerthemovie/speed_04_720.zip
    It seemed to have the same movie properties as the other trailer, but played choppy as hell. I was wondering why. Just curious - any ideas?

    Dunno why the difference in playback quality- I find Quicktime struggles with a lot of 720/1080 content but VLC plays them back perfectly.

    Also, a good source for trailers is: http://www.drfoster.f2s.com/
