Will this machine have a problem running 700mb .mp4 files?

I plan on bumping the ram to 1gb, HD to 120gb & Installing Jaguar on it.

I thought about making a flash interface for her. It would have graphics of the dvd's, and then launch the mp4 when clicked. Has anyone done something like this? And what are your experiences with a 2 yr old navigating a computer? Thanks.

It'll run movie files just fine. As for the Flash interface idea I think that sounds pretty cool. Give it a shot and let us know!

My PowerBook 1.33GHz only just plays them, presuming you mean h264 mp4 files?

I wouldn't imagine the iMac would run them very well if at all.

Hmm perhaps my PowerBook's loosing it. I'm sure it used to be really quick.

Jaguar will be terribly slow.

With your upgrades, it can run Panther or even Tiger, but Panther would be faster.


I'm also upgrading a graphite iMac [400MHz] - 512MB RAM, 20GB hard drive, Tiger :) -- but the hard drive and RAM will be like your daughter's.


As for the the flash interface....no idea. :(


Have fun!

700meg mp4 files?

isn't a 2 year old too young to watch porn? i'm a pretty liberal guy, but i have my limits.

wait, are you saying there is video off the internet that doesn't have naked people?
