Default How to get 720P .mkv files to play well on SL? - 10-08-2009, 11:28 PM

Trying to get a 720p .mkv file playing smooth. Ive got a 10v with 2GB of RAM running Snow Leopard.

After some research, Ive installed Perian, then also installed/uninstalled NicePlayer to allow QTX to play .mkv files, but it still plays them super choppy and slow.

Ive read on here that people have this running smooth and well, but no one posts what they have done. As for codecs all I have is matroska and Flip4Mac installed. VLC player also plays .mkv file choppy.

Any ideas? Thanks!

I use Mplayer on Linux, but one tweak I've found helpful with h.264 video playback is disabling the loop filter. You should be able to do the same in VLC on OSX.
