    I've got a 700mhz powerpc G3 ibook that used to play videos without slowing down. Now, it has trouble playing any avi that's about 100MB or larger. I use VLC and Chroma. Chroma works a little better but still gets stuck. The computer used to play videos better. Should I go back to an older OS? Get an older version of vlc?
