Hi, i have a 2011 macbook pro 15" 2.0ghz one. how can a computer that cost so much not be able to play 720p without a lagging every 15 seconds. i've checked everything on my mac theres over 2gb of ram free and plenty of hard disk space. i have tried with multiple 720p videos and they all have frame skips and work perfectly on my home pc. anything else i can try to improve videos on my mac?

What is the source of the videos? Are you streaming them from a website, or are they locally stored videos? What program are you using to watch them?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I have a 2007 MacBook that doesn't even have a real video card and I can play 720p videos both on my main screen and on my second screen without problems. Something else going on there.

Would these be mkv or wmv videos by any chance?
