ah, you guys misunderstood me. When I said "choppy video" I didn't mean choppy video in video player, I meant choppy video in general. Maybe the term "choppy video" is the wrong term to use. If I tried to move an open window, it would respond extremely slow, the movement of the window was "choppy" as in I could see the window first in one place, then half a second later, it would be in a different part of the screen. So something was obviously very wrong with my installation. Furthermore, if I typed fglrxinfo in console, it would restart xwindows (not reboot). Something went even more wrong the next time I tried to install the ati catalyst driver, I couldn't even log in. Every time I tried to log in, my laptop would reboot. I had to boot in recovery mode and remove the driver, sigh...
