    can someone that uses parallel tell me how is the quality and performance when playing back video from within parallel running windows

    the reason im asking is because if i want to play rmvb files in macosx, im stuck using realplayer or convert it to another format, neither of which do i want to do, so that leaves me pondering the option of playing it from windows in parallel

    any feedback is much appreciated, especially if there is a simple way of playing rmvb files in macosx without using realplayer

    I use Parallels to watch Adult Swim Fix and Toonami Jetstream. It's flash video but it plays seamlessly and with no frame drops using Coherence.

    Can Realplayer on OS X handle that?

    i believe that realplayer macosx should be able to play it, but i just dont like using their player, and i prefer using a single media player to play all formats

    I use Parallels and don't have any quality issues playing things back. I mainly use it for audiobooks.
