The monitor on your laptopo is HD quality it is greater than 1280 x 720.
This video you are viewing, is it a file or a DVD.
Your definition of OKAY = not HD quality ????
Is the video your watching in HD format? As in, is it a blu-ray, or if a file, is it recorded in HD.
If it is not blu-ray or recorded in HD, then you wouldnt get HD quality, you would get whats called "up-scaled" from a lower resolution to the resolution of your screen.
Up-scaling can cause degredation of the video.
Please post the brand and model of the monitor your viewing the video on through your HDMI cable.
