The container/codec formats, audio/video bitrates, and many other encoding parameters might explain the difference, although going by your PC specs it should have no problem handling both. Check that the first file is not corrupted, try remuxing (not re-encoding) it before playback, and try something like PotPlayer instead. Also, do provide further details about the files. –  Karan Sep 21 '12 at 17:14
    
@Karan's comment should be an answer instead. –  Geppettvs D'Constanzo Sep 21 '12 at 18:37
