    Hi guys,

    I have a macbook pro of 2010 (13" with i5 processor)
    A few months ago my harddrive crashed so I decided to insert an ssd and
    upgrade my ram as well.
    Right now its a machine with 8 gigs of ram, an i5 processor and a ssd drive:
    thats the one...

    Ok my problem is from that moment on, whenever I want to play a movie in vlc or quicktime or whatever, it lags, it shows artifacts etc, sometimes the video is not in sync with the audio etc etc.
    In plex it works decent(not good enough) but that uses a different kind of decoding I heard.
    Because I didnt had any backups in timemachine i added a clean install of OSX lion on the ssd. So normally this computer should be realy performant(which he is normally, but whenever I play video it goes to hell)

    Does anyone know what I can do?
