    First question:

    I need help playing mkv files on my mac. I use VLC media player. the problem(s) is that sometimes it takes a long time to load the file and it sometimes freezes/stops during playback. What can I do?

    second question:

    Lately my macbook pro has been running slow and has become unresponsive. I'm running firefox, vlc, one folder opened, and one or two more apps.

    First answer: Movist.

    Second "answer: what was the question? Have a look at Activity Monitor and see what process might hog up the CPU, and don't forget to select Show All Processes on the top right of the window. Also look at the System Memory tab.

    Also how much RAM do you have and what MBP do you use with what Mac oS X version on it?



    The thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
