    I find that playing .mkv files or other HD video files on mac slower than windows. This is on my 2008 macbook; comparing vlc player on mac os to when i switch over to bootcamp using vlc as well.
    in mac os, the video files take a while to start up and usually stutters with frame lags; however in bootcamp, video's start almost instantly.
    is this a problem with software (VLC) or just mac os doesn't handle mkv files well?

    What are your specs? Install Perian and see if you get better performance in Quick Time.
