lingualect Level 1 Level 1
When I watch video from certain websites, like the daily show where I frequently attempt to do this, every 10 seconds or so the video freezes for about 10-20 seconds to buffer. (This generally does not happen on youtube). I've tried Safari, Firefox, and also in Parallels with Internet Explorer. They all do the same thing. Does anyone know of a way to fix this? Or is it a problem on the daily show website rather than something that can be adjusted on my computer?

Macbook Pro 2, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Are you using the latest version of Flash?

    I just downloaded the latest version and this did not fix the problem. I went into the applications folder just to doublecheck that it successfully downloaded the new version, and I could not find flash in the applications folder. Should it be there?

    Adobe Flash Player gets installed in Macintosh HD>Library>Internet Plug-ins folder. If other site are working well then it just may be that particular site. Post the url and we'll all check it out.

    This is one site that has the problem:

    Anyone else have the same problem?

    I had no problem.

    Yes, I am having serious problems with this site (and its sister site My problems is a little bit different though.
    I can repeat the errors several times and here is how to do it:

    1. visit and click to view a full episode with either Firefox or Safari
    2. in the middle of an episode, click on another episode in the episode picker or choose to click on Colbert Report.

    80% of the time, either Firefox or Safari will freeze. If you are not quick enough to terminate the web browser with Command-Option-Escape, the cpu will fail to respond and you are forced to restart the computer.

    These two sites are the only two that I have this problem with. It started in September and I never had any problems before.

    First you should start a new post with your issue. However, I tried to duplicate what you said to do and 10 of 10 times I had no problem you described. Tried with both Safari and Firefox. Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. I have version 10.0 r12.

    I have the same problem, this happens across many wireless accounts. The computer hard drive seems to be churning when it freezes.

    Read my post prior to yours.

    I just a bought a new MBP (2.5) from Amazon and I'm trying to watch some streaming content and I keep getting interrupted... seemingly buffering just as you described....

    What's the solution???

    I am having the same problems (dailyshow and colbert report) with my new unibody macbook (both in safari and firefox). I've also had some problems streaming from NBC's site -- but not hulu lately... With the ram and processor speed, I assume (deeply hope) its not a problem with the hardware. I have the newest flash so is there something I do in settings or something. Help.

    I am having the same problems - extremely frustrating - and various other tutorial sites. I have emptied cache - etc to no avail - would love a solution if anyone has one. Thanks

    I am also having the same problems. Did you find a solution?
  • cerridwenstorms Level 1 Level 1
    I'm having similar issues, though it appears to be with any site for streaming; Hulu, Crunchyroll, Fox's website. Even YouTube for a few full length videos. I even just installed Flash again, made sure it was in the Internet Plug-ins and I still have these issues.
