The answer depends on a number of factors including how the movie was made and what kind of system is being used. In some cases, the movie will not play at all. In other cases, depending on the system, the image quality could be poor. CPU use may reach 100%, even on a new system with a fast dual-core processor, resulting in dropped frames, reduced image quality, and the inability to run other applications simultaneously.
