    Sounds like pixelization artefacts that come in the encoding, I think. Does the trailer play smoothly otherwise?

    I don't think its wrong, just poor encoding. Are you looking at the US (.com) site, or a local version?

    <smacks own head> Sorry, yes, you said that. :rolleyes:

    I just watched a couple trailers myself off Frontrow using Tiger, not Leopard. There are some artefacts in the shadows, true, but I don't usually notice them anymore.

    It's good to know if these things are normal :)

    I'm curious if your DVD experience will be similar. Post back to say, S.V.P.

    I just watched a couple of trailers in front row on my MBP, and I definitely noticed some pixelation. It's actually pretty profound; the squares are quite large. Hmm...

    This is more of a Leopard thing: When I watch trailers on my MBP running Tiger, they play smoothly once the initial load is done. Artefacts and all.

    On my Leopard-installed Mac Mini, the preview starts, then pauses to buffer more at least three times during the preview. Makes them unwatchable, really.

    BTW: The previews used to load and play fine before I upgraded the Mini to Leopard.
