    Watching Lost in high def full screen is a real test for my week 11 MBA 1.6 80g. I get some stuttering and pretty high temps. you can find the episodes at abc.com. it's free to watch them. love to see your results.

    Which version of the shows are you watching? Fullscreen?

    Are you using ABC's "special" video viewer?

    As in:

    ABC uses a plug-in you don't currently have. It will give you stunning video quality, full-screen and mini-mode.
    We could go on, but it gets technical and boring from here.
    Instructions for Mac People
    Click the 'Begin Install' button, and select 'Trust' when prompted. Installation will begin, and when it's complete, you'll be shown a test video for verification.

    i did use the abc enhance plug in and the video is stunning.

    previously i had turned on the option to have the desktop randomly change the background every 5 sec. looks like this is what made my lost episode skip and stutter some. i turned it off and had no stuttering. i was :D

    i'm testing my mba with the lost episodes at full screen hd.

    Try the HD videos at Hulu.

    They have a disclaimer with the minimum hardware requirements, but it does not verify you have the minimum config.

    As long as it is 720, I have no problems. 1080 doesn't fit the screen.
