Video playback problem in Fedora 17

In all video players I've tried, video playback is slow/jerky, as if it's running at a reduced framerate (audio plays perfectly). I've installed smplayer and VLC (twice), they do the same. My machine has Intel gfx, and video playback was fine in F16. What could the problem be?

maybe you don't have a video drivers installed! try with
lspci |grep -i VGA

if the results is nvidia drivers, it's easy install with

Sorry I never came back sooner - it started working normal. I'm not sure exactly what helped - I had been using Cinnamon desktop and decided to check from default gnome, and video played fine in gnome. I logged back in with cinnamon and it was playing fine there too and has been since.

Have no idea what to make of the below post though
