Hey, I'm having a problem with H.264 codec videos stuttering like crazy. I'm using a 17" Powerbook G4 1.67Ghz 1GB Memory.

Also, if anyone has tips on how to resolve, it'd be great.
Thanks.

Really? I haven't had any problems with my 17" PowerBook 1.5GHz 1GB Memory. Are you viewing them embedded in a web page or in the free floating Quicktime window?

Where are you getting the videos from, I could try them when I get home to see if it works the same for me.

Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

If you are trying to view the HD videos from apple.com it is because you need a very powerful system for HD videos.

I watched the Batman Begins trailer from Apple.com's HD movie trailers section with no problem on my PowerBook.

I downloaded them off of the HDGallery...it was like 100+ MB or something. 1080i... should they be running smoothly?

EDIT: And it was the Batman Returns Video.

Try going into your Energy Saver tab in the Preferences tab and set it to Max Performance (I think thats what its called) and see if that makes a difference.

Well, still no luck. No one else is experiencing significant frame skipping/stuttering?? I mean, the Batman trailer is almost unwatchable.... it's like 5 frames/sec

You should also try closing out every app running on your system, including the ones in the menu bar. You should see an improvement.

If you're trying to run those 1080 clips full screen on the G4, I don't think it's going to happen. Watching them windowed perhaps, but not full screen.

Yeah, that's fine. The thing that had me confused was that other people with a G4 had no problems.

I have the exact same problem with the exact same pb specs. I downloaded the hd 1080 clips from apple, and they keep stuttering, however audio plays fine.

I closed all other programs, i played the video half size and even smaller, but the video still stutters.

fairly dissapointing i'd say. Hope theres some kind of fix or something.

[edit]

Just checked the recommended system for 1080 playback. Dual 2 Ghz G5 :rolleyes:
