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.

Can't download movies or watch u tube.


Is your flash version up to date? To watch movies on iTunes (if that's what you're doing) you may need quicktime. But to watch youtube videos, you need to always keep your flash version current. Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ to download the latest one.

How do i get my flash player to stop pausing every 2 seconds


Hi,
Flash Player is a software for viewing animations and movies using computer programs such as a web browser. If you encounter that your flash player pauses every 2 seconds, maybe that is not an error. Maybe, the video that you are watching is just buffering. My suggestion to that is just click pause first and let the video buffer. Once it is completed loading play it. But if it is still pausing, you may uninstall it on your computer and install an updated flash player. You may use this link to download the latest flash player: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!!
