    I have a problem with my new 15inch 2011 macbook pro playing vlc videos. At the top of all my mkv files I get a weird distorted set on lines. These lines do not appear on my 2010 macbook air, and it is running the same version of vlc. I have downgraded the versions and that does not help. The files will play in quicktime with out the lines, however, I am sure that the sound and picture suffer in quicktime. I have tried about 15 of my files all the same problem I even download a new one just to be sure....same problem


    So my question is can anyone help me before I have to return it?

    I think I saw another thread saying the same thing. My 2011 doesn't have that issue - I have a different GPU.

    Return the computer for a software bug? If you are in your 14 days, try returning it in-case this is somehow related to hardware. If you are outside your 14 days good luck returning it. Also

    Why do you think this? is it not running well in quicktime or do you have a biased against quicktime?

    I do not mind quicktime at all, but you can tell that it is not the same once you play the files in quicktime and I do not know why or what quicktime does but it is not the same.

    Thank you

    I went to your page and found MPlayerX. This works fine and it removed the lines. I do not think it is a problem with the macbook, and thus why I will not return it. I am sure it is something with vlc.
