playing video on Fedora 19

Hello I have problems playing video on fedora 19. I have switchable graphics Intel/ATI (AMD Radeon HD 7500M/7600M Series). It´s HP ProBook 4540s.

I´ve installed proprietary ATI drivers, version 13.6 Beta, which should be the latest and only driver that works with fedora 19 as far as I know.

I installed VLC from RPMFusion and also mplayer. Video is choppy(I´m not sure if it´s the right expression, sorry for my English ;-)) in both of them. It´s a little better when playing videos with lower resolution, but still bad enough.

Strange thing is that it actually improves when I switch my gpu to integrated:

aticonfig --px-igpu

I also tried it on live ubuntu 13.04, booted from USB, installed VLC, GPU was shown as Intel Ivybridge mobile and video runs just fine, without any problems.

I also tried this with fedora live usb, booted, installed vlc, gpu shown was Intel Ivybridge mobile and lower resolution videos seemed to be fine, but HD videos was choppy again :-(

Does anyone has some solution to this?
