No, I'm saying that MacOS X is very resource intensive in itself, leaving far less available power for things like Video playback. It could also be that the supporting chipset is a pile of poo. But the cpu itself packs more then enough grunt to do the work.

I've seen 600Mhz G3 based AmigaOne's (complete with a [in]famously crappy chipset) play DVD's back flawlessly. Clearly, something is very amiss with your laptop.
