    When i watch .avi movies in quicktime the playback isnt 100% smooth but its just fine in VLC player. How can i fix this because i want to use front-row when connected to my plasma. Thanks

    Try updated codecs such as the ones in Perian: http://perian.org/

    What type of video files are you trying to play back?

    A lot of times I try to play different video on Quicktime and get choppy playback. Can't tell you why. So the majority of vids I play are in VLC, it's playback is perfect.

    Its the same on my mbp. the sound is fine but it seems like the frame per second is a little lower than it should be.
