How to get a smooth playback for high definition videos?

How to get the maximum number of frames processed in real time despite hardware limitations? In 720p I am getting less than 12 fps in VLC Media Player in a specific hardware, for a MKV encoded video.

"Have a look at CoreAVC - http://corecodec.com/products/coreavc
This is a one-off cheap cost (~10$) plug-in for some media players and claims to be the fastest playback."

You... can't! You could recode the video to a lower resolution (which would run fine - but not be in 720p anymore), but if your hardware can't cut it, your hardware can't cut it! VLC already does everything it can to get smooth video. A better solution would be to purchase a cheapish graphics card that can play the video back smoothly (Almost any dedicated card should do fine - my ATI X1300pro doesn't even struggle with 1080p footage)
