So I have a MacBook Pro, and I've had it for about two years now. I'm trying to figure out how to make it play a 1080p .mkv file. Now, I've been using VLC, and it kind of works, but the video lags while the audio keeps going, then the video skips again to where the audio is, then lags again, etc. Sometimes I'll get parts that run smooth, but a lot of it doesn't. Now I tried updating my VLC, and that helped a little bit, but it still lags somewhat. I feel like I'm on the cusp of being able to make it work! Now I think I tried playing a .mp4 file that was 1080p in the past and that worked just fine, if that even has any barring on this situation (I have no idea). I was also told that the specs on my laptop should be able to support the file just fine. Here they are if it might help: Model Name: MacBook Pro 15" Model Identifier: MacBookPro2,2 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.33 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Boot ROM Version: MBP22.00A5.B07 SMC Version: 1.12f5 Anyone know of any updates I can get or anything? Any special programs I should download (preferably free ones)? Or should I just give up and see if 720p works? Would 720p even be just as good? Thanks!
