    I'm sorry, but you need to punctuate your sentences. It's much too hard to read your posts with all lowercase and no punctuation. I'd like to help, but you need to make an effort to make your posts more readable.

    To the ones who actually want to help people. I ment to tell what why i was asking this on a restart or a cold boot. I can watch movies i ripped and dvds fine but its like if i dont restart after a few days or i see my free memory drop to below like 800mb. The movies in any media player will start stuttering and this includes dvds i am watching in the dvd player program. So any ideas what can cause this my active ram and wired ram are like almost 2gb a piece when this happens.

    As I said:
    You don't need to reboot. Free memory isn't the whole story:
    Mac OS X: Reading system memory usage in Activity Monitor
    What other apps are running at the time? Which DVD players are you using?

    The one that comes with osx and no apps are running for days on end and i shut the apps down when i am done with them. That means actualy right click and quit the programs. Well there is something that is going on that starts the problem with the stuttering of the videos both all media players. I know I have a rogue somewere that may not show on activity monitor
