    The problem is most likely that you're running an 800MHz G4. They can do DVDs, but when playing video files, they have some issues.

    you can upgrade ram to 1 Giga and upgrade os to 10.4.11

    i'm always watching movie (.dat, .avi, .flv, and dvd) with my iMac G4 (700 mhz, ram 768 mhz and os 10.4.11)

    :apple: sorry if any mistake with my words

    max out your ram, and do a search on mplayer for PPC, and how to set it up. mactubes is a very good app for playing youtube.
