DMA open or closed for better media?


recently my windows XP pro crashed and so i reformatted wth fedora. when on windows i had some movies that played fine, like .aac or .mkv with no lag or bad pic. so now on fedora, with the same hardware ill use VLC or K media and its terrible. voices are off, grainy, stops a lot. i installed easylife to get the necessary plugins but still looks like garbage.
so i was told to try and open my DMA to get a better experience. is this accurate? and how? 1 hard drive or all???

Likely Video Drivers are your problem. See if your Video Card is supported for Linux and has drivers for Fedora.

Post machine specs if that doesn't work.
