    it's probably because of your graphics, it might not be able to handle full screen videos :)

    to be honest that would probably come out worse because it would put extra load on the processor :)

    everything on screen goes through the graphics card, even if it's a dvd, that just decodes the data on the disc to something that the pc can use which gets sent through the graphics card and onto your screen

    i don't know the vlc format so you could try converting them to another one (e.g. mpeg) and see if it reduces the strain on the cpu

    i used to have a graphic card that couldn't handle videos of any size any more so the picture changed about 2 times a second ;) upgraded to a new one and it was fine, but i don't know how easy it is to upgrade graphics in laptops
