I was trying to watch some videos on youTube and Cnn.com/video tonight. In all cases the video is EXTREMELY choppy. This has been going on for quite awhile now and this is not an isolated case. The Audio is perfectly fine but the video often lags. Is there anything I can to do correct this or is my machine just too old? I've attached a few screen shots from my mac...
Its totally fine on "Local videos." It seems to be worse with CNN.com and in SOME cases youtube though Cnn the big culprit. Its likely something to do with the way the mac renders the version of Flash that CNN uses??
Yes, many Mac fan boys act like Apple can do no wrong and I hate those people. Nothing is 100% perfect... not even Apple.
I ran a speed test and I attached a copy of it to this post showing that I have good download speeds.
Are you connected with WiFi or an ethernet cable? What kind of speeds do you get when you use www.speedtest.net? You ram is pretty low, but there may be some ways to improve the overall performance. Do you experience the same problem when you exit out of Firefox and try the same test with Chrome?
