    I have a Macbook Pro (2.4ghz, 2GB RAM)
    whenever I play a HD video from youtube, the video is super laggy, choppy, and the audio is not sync with the picture.:mad:

    however,if I use bootcamp (windows xp) and play the same video, it would run perfectly fine.

    Both Mac and Windows have flash player 10.

    is there a fix for this? thank you

    Are you using the 9600 or the 9400 (AKA are you using high-performance or energy-saver)?

    The 9600 doesn't have the Purevideo HD decoder, so your CPU is taxed when playing HD video. When you use the 9400, the GPU does the HD playback, so it should be smoother.
