When I got a new Mac Mini (Intel) I had a similar problem. When you
look at the video, does it look "scaled" to you, almost as if you are
zoomed in to the video somewhat? That's what was happening on mine.
Everything played terribly. I had to go into the playback settings and
change the video scale option.
I had to go in to my playback settings and change the scale settings
there (not the scale as necessary option). I had to change them to a
non "0" value, for example, -25%, and then the video was "properly"
shrunk to a small size (lots of black around the edges), then, when I
set the values back to 0, the video was scaled properly. Very strange,
but after that, everything worked great.
