Question about Apple MacBook Pro PC Notebook

Playing Flash movies pauses for 1/2 sec every 5-7 seconds

When I watch a flash movie on youtube or any other site with flash movies, the video will pause for about a half-second every 5-7 seconds of viewing. There's no problem with loading the video - even when the video is replayed and thus fully loaded, the issue happens.

I'm running version 10,0,12,36 of Flash. Version 10.5.6 of Mac OS X. I've tested on the latest versions of Safari and FireFox. I've reinstalled Flash. I've rebooted my PC and I've cleared my browser cache. Nothing seems to help.

Thanks in advance for the help.

    I'm experiencing this same problem --but on a PC. You didn't say, but with mine, a quirky part is that the audio plays flawlessly all through; thus the video stops ie pauses, then catches up to the audio/time. In my testing, I've narrowed it down to apparently being a Firefox browser issue, because on the same computer in another browser (IE), this doesn't happen.

Often, social networking sites, email sites, etc. will check for new data every 10 seconds or so. To resolve this, close all other browser windows and disable any desktop live applications that check for data via the internet. You should find that playback becomes smooth again.

Try this technique: download one of the many free programs from the web that allows you to download the FLV videos onto your computer. Play the video that way. Look for a version that works for your MacBook. Post back your results.

I know that iPad’s browser does not support flash. So it sounds like we can not watch YouTube videos. right? Is it possible to watch YouTube videos on iPad? If yes, then how is that possible cuz there is no flash suport?” — Roozbeh

Part 1 How to Download YouTube to iPad for Free?
If you’re using Safari, there’s an easy way to download YouTube videos. Open the page with the movie and press Command-Option-A, which shows the Activity window. If you’re also loading other sites, you’ll see a list of them: scroll until you find the YouTube page and click on the arrow to show details about what is being loaded.
You will certainly notice an element whose size is over 0.5MB (most of the time, over 5MB). Double-click on it (even if it is still loading), and Safari will download it. When the download is over, navigate to the file in the Finder (which will probably be called get_video) and add the extension .flv to its name. Now you can play YouTube video on Mac with VLC Player or QuickTime.

I have a Belkin router, and a decent internet connection. However, whenever I try to watch video online (e.g. Youtube, or BBC i-player), the connection is very slow, and seems to stop every few seconds. ...


Wait. Play a little (to start the buffer), then pause the video manually for a few minutes (to allow the buffer to fill).

It ain't the router's fault.

Modern browser-plugin streaming client video players (e.g., Silverlight) need some time with your internet connection to learn your best-available resolution and how much to buffer. After a while, it will improve "all by itself."

After several minutes or so of consistent throughput, some players will upgrade your resolution. You'll see the movie suddenly get sharper.

Another tip: Friday evenings and Saturday nights the traffic is heavy and so the internet is slow. Sunday mornings you'll get better throughput.

Streaming video on the internet


Your download speed may be effecting this. What you need to do is waiting until file has completed downloading, then watch the video. If a direct feed from the net, hit "play" on the screen, but then "pause" wait a about 20 secs and hit "play" again, this will give it enough time to get ahead of itself.
