You might give VLC or mplayer a try. However, MP4s and MKVs tend to use h.264/AVC-encoded video quite often these days (I believe YouTube definitely does), and that tends to require a more recent or powerful system to play the video without lagging or skipping - even if you're not playing HD video.
If gXine isn't playing the videos without being slow, it's possible other programs/apps might have difficulty with it, as well. _________________ [ Puppy 4.3.1 JP, Frugal install | 1GB RAM | 1.3GB swap ] * My Pidgin Builds for Puppy 4.3.1+
