Should all video file playback from the HD be choppy and pause on a g3 700 with 640 ram? DVDs play fine but avi's etc play like crap in every player i tried

If it still has the original hard drive, that might be the problem. I don't know if you are running several other programs while trying to play videos, but if not, it looks like your computer should be capable of playing a movie.

Well I google searched and see that ALOT of ibook users have the same problem. I wonder if its an issue with ATI video drivers? I downgraded to 10.3.9 and that seemed to help slightly

I think its the proc. I've looked about and all signs point to that sadly. I've seen ppl with 800s having the same problem.

I submitted a ticket to ATI in my account; we'll see. I didn't find anything via Google though.

I think it might be the G3 CPU and Video GPU causing most of it. I know my iMac G3 is very choppy with most videos that are out there now a days.

Divx files give me the most grief. I tried re encoding video, but I did it on my win laptop and then the files wouldn't play on the mac. Ugh.
