    I have a 1ghz powerbook g4 and am struggling through difficult times while using youtube what with adobe and all and html 5 not being that great either. The strange thing is however, when I plug my charging cable in I get a big increase in the frame rate on most videos, so long as it goes no higher than a resolution of 360p but I cope.

    Any logical reasons why this might happen?

    Thanks, Matt.

    I think you got performance on battery set to normal. Set it to better performance.

    Be warned though, it will make your battery life suffer...

    I would agree. This seems to be your problem.
