    Anyone else noticed a huge lag on sites that have video that is coming from Brightcove servers? This is a fairly recent occurrence for me.

    I frequent and and have seen the initial loading of both of those pages come to a screeching halt when attempting to load the video data.

    I thought perhaps it was the Flash player, but I have the latest and it doesn't happen with other video sources/players. I blocked the brightcove domains to see if that helps, e voila, instant loads.

    Me: Mac Pro, 6GB RAM, on FF3

    Anyone else notice this in the past 3 weeks or so?
