Black 2.0GHz MacBook (2GB memory) from 2006
-- it's been repurposed as a Netflix playback machine. I have it connected to a VGA adaptor to a 19" widescreen monitor and it plays back Netflix in a browser and we also watch DVDs on it, and we also play AVIs with VLC.
The problem: video is just slightly choppy. Just choppy enough to be annoying. Tried Chrome and also Safari to do the playback.
How can I squeeze more video performance from this laptop to avoid the slight choppiness? I have a feeling if I can improve it just slightly that would be a big win.
