    And then open another browser window and say, post on ot, without the video getting all choppy in the other window. Anybody have a solution to this problem? :x:

    Oh yeah, this only happens to me when it's a flash file (which youtube is). If I'm watching a regular video, I dont get this problem.

    Dang. My computer is a little old (dual 867) but you think 2 gigs of ram and 128mb video card could handle this.

    10.4.8 fixed the choppy video on youtube for me :bowdown:


    edit: Not entirely lagless, but very watchable and you can't really notice it unless you switch back and forth between apps to compare the frame rate.
