Remember back in the OS 9 (and earlier), how you could have start up sets? I know in these heady days of Lion, we don't need to manage extensions and fonts, except... I sorta do. [more inside]
Why does my Macbook "reboot" sometimes when I watch full screen video? [more inside]
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.
