Hi guys,

I'm having some YouTube trouble. When I play a video on YT, Little Snitch prompts me for "com.apple.qtkitserver.xpc" at least twice before playing the video. But the video plays choppy until the entire video is buffered, and after playing about 25% it drifts out of sync anywhere from a half second to two or three seconds. It's really bad. Embedded videos on message boards etc play flawlessly. What's going on?

Last night I got the 'No HTML5' message that others have been getting (as seen here) which kind of narrowed it down for me as an HTML5 issue. I am part of the HTML5 test group on YT but what made Safari suddenly stop dealing with YT's HTML5 is a proper manner?

I was one of the guys hit with the Flashback, could that have been a factor? I only noticed the problem after the two Safari updates from two weeks ago.

 

Do I just have to opt out of the HTML5 test group and go back to Flash to fix this?

 

Thanks.

Safari, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
