Currently Being ModeratedAug 22, 2009 1:18 AM (in response to JumpingHunger)It really depends on the size of the video you're trying to play - if its High Definition content, then your Mac Mini is really underpowered for that kind of task. You might find it runs faster with Tiger. How much RAM does the machine have?iMac 17" Core Duo 1.83 GHz (Early 2006) 2GB RAM, 1TB HD, Mac OS X (10.5.8), IIci, SE, Performa 6320, Performa 6400, PM4400, PM G4, LC III, 475
Currently Being ModeratedAug 22, 2009 8:27 AM (in response to JumpingHunger)I would agree with Joshua's comments, and that 512 Meg Ram is a bit tight for Leopard.
If you are going to open up the G4 Mini, up the RAM to 1 Gig.
Whether or not you get a new hard drive, make sure that you don't fill your startup hard drive past 90%.Leopard 10.5.7: Mini C2D 1.83 1G; Mini CD 1.83 2G; iBook G4 800, 640M, 10.3.9, Dell 1704-FPV, NeoOffice, Firefox3.5, Thunderbird, Parallels, SwiftPublisher
Currently Being ModeratedAug 22, 2009 9:22 AM (in response to Boece)Thanks for the quick replies. As you say that 512mb is not enough for leopard I've still got tiger so maybe I'll install that as a first port of call and then move on from there.
I will give that a go and let you know how it goes
