    If you go to:

    http://www.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?hlg=20082009,3,241&fr=false

    or any HD youtube,... the video is laggy on my 2.0 MB unibody. I know it's not my internet connection problem as my MBP 2.4 Unibody is playing fine.

    Should i download firefox? Does anyone out there with the same laptop has the same problem?

    Maybe a problem with the graphics card?

    Do you have other programs open as well as the internet? If so maybe its the RAM...or lack there of.

    i've got the same macbook as you and it plays fine on mine, slight motion lag when viewing it in standard, pressed the full button and it played perfectly in full screen.
    Youtube in HD on my macbook owns, looks soooo good on the glossy screen at full brightness, j'adore ca

    I think NHL.com's videos are always like that. But YouTube HD shouldn't be laggy (once the video has a full buffer). Go to Apple's site (www.apple.com/trailers) and watch some HD trailers. Are they laggy?

    I find much better highlights and videos at http://tsn.ca/
