    It depends very much on the video encoding that is used (MKV being just the container format). If we're talking about H264 encoding, then I'd say no, it's not possible on a 1.8 GHz G4 (or even 2.0 GHz G4, which exists for PowerMac, but haven't seen so far in use with MorphOS). Additionally, bitrate and nominal FPS have some weight in the outcome (the lower, the easier to play in realtime).

    Which video encoding?
