Just got a Plantronics Voyager 510 bluetooth headset. Works just fine, except when viewing clips at YouTube. Not only is there no sound, the clip freezes after a few seconds. I believe they are Adobe Flash. Now this is on my new late 2007 MacBook with Leopard.

So I figure I'll try the headset on my Intel 1.66 Mac Mine with Tiger 10.4.10. Same thing

Any ideas.

Black MacBook 2.2 Ghz and Mac Mini 1.66 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5)

    Did you ever figure this out? I am having the same problem with adobe flash files on the net
    trying to use my Motorola H700 bluetooth headset. The headset seems to work with itunes, quicktime, etc, but I'm having problems with flash on the web...

    Same problem here. Have you figured it out yet? I am still searching...

    Apparently Apple cheaped out on the Bluetooth support in the Tiger OS X (or an official profile wasn't even available)....something to do with not having Stereo Headset support.

    It is possible to circumvent it: http://blog.david.connolly.name/2007/06/stereo-bluetooth-profile-a2dp-on-mac-os. html However, as indicated on the top of that topic - it is outdated (and IMO too much effort).

    In a nutshell - you're being quietly coaxed in to buying Leopard OS X - which does have the Stereo Bluetooth profile installed.

    What I don't get is why Apple can't release to us a nice little patch for Tiger to give us the full use of our Bluetooth hardwares.

    I'm having the same problem with my i.Tech Clip IIs on Leopard on my Mac Mini. Plays sound fine when I'm using the headset in stereo mode ("Use Headphones"), but it won't play back sound in Flash when in headset mode ("Use Headset").

    I really need the headset to work again for a flash teleconferencing site, so if anyone has any pointers it'll be most appreciated.

    Jack, are you saying that you were able to listen to flash audio/videos with your headphones but not your headset? Before I buy a pair of BT headphones I wanted to make sure I can use them for flash stuff, but I don't necessary need the teleconferencing ability that you need.

    Same problem here. Moto H500, on leopard. Works for everything except flash videos, which have no sound and get paused after a few seconds. Changing output device resumes the video and restores sound, so the conflict is definitely between flash and the BT headseet.

    Any solutions out there?
