Just wondering what everyone is using to play their (local or streamed) 1080p MKV files on macs?

I have / had been using VLC (been using this application for many many years on everything from windows to linux and now recently this macbook pro) but I have noticed that some of the playback was being choppy with the 1080p mkv files. At first I thought it might be related to network speed but since I've upgrade to wireless N this should not be the case and my network speed benchmarking demonstrates this.

I finally took some time last night to do some poking around and determined the problem appears to be with VLC itself. I then installed mplayer OSX - extended and that has so far played everything without choppiness.

What player(s) are you using? Any issues with 1080p MKV files?

Thanks!
