Yeah, me too...Seems to use more CPU power than 0.8.6i did when playing HD videos. Hmm, I'm actually having a few issues playing 1080p in Matrosuka / H.264 files.
i'm having these problems as well, on both my mbp and imac. it crashes every 2nd or 3rd time i try to skip. anyone wanna upload 8.6 please?I'm having trouble with VLC playing HD videos too. Everything's good until you start skipping through by click on the timeline. Apart from the massive lag until it starts playing where you clicked, the image is torn for about 2-3 seconds before it goes back to normal.
I'm gonna try the nightly see if it's any better.
