so would that explain why when i download web videos they RealPlayer, NicePlayer or VLC lag but QT plays it smoothly? Would i need to use the Ten4Fx QTE and play videos in QuickTime to see it at 720p?OS X and even Mac OS going back to at least 7.5 have native MPEG support via Quicktime.
so what Codec do u recommend? I install Perian on all my macs and have installed Flip4Mac in the pastNot all MPEG videos are the same. Only MPEG 1 and 2 are lightweight enough to not cause problems in higher resolutions. Even with native support, a playback can have dropped frames. OS X has native playback of h264, but it drops frames with higher resolutions on slower systems.
