    I often have 720p MKV video to watch, and I was wondering whether the current generation base model MacBook White is capable of playing them.

    I know that the MacBook White has the 9400m GPU which should be capable of doing it, but does it work in reality? What software do you need?

    It will work, I watch 720p videos on my 2006 white MB all the time.

    Use this, I think it's much better than VLC:

    MPlayer OSX Extended.

    It now has the option for multithreaded ffmpeg. Experimental though but has
    been heaps stable for me.
