VLC does software decoding only, to my knowledge? That will tax your system harder.

.....which is helpful but less important than the video hardware on your rig and whether your video player is doing hardware or software decoding.

I have a 5.5 year old laptop which can still play 1080p clips that skip like hell on some newer machines... and itdefinitely doesn't have 8GB or 3.0 GHz

Possibly because the software hasn't finished rendering the preview yet? That'd be my best guess, which will happen even with 16gbs of ram and a lightning fast processor...

Cool good luck and have fun with it, getting the video is only 1\2 the battle editing it on the other hand is the hard and time consuming part!
