Youtube/Flash video pause issue?

    Everytime I pause a video on youtube and other flash videos (I think), When I click play to resume it doesn't play and i have to click the video time slider to resume the video. This is incredibly annoying. Anyone else get this problem?

    Video playback in general gets a little cranky every now and then in both HTML5 and flash. Can't say I know why though, but I have experienced the issue. It isn't quality for me. I have an Nvidia 9400m, which is capable of 1080p playback (barely).

    Same thing. This has nothing to do with your hardware. The point is that flash simply sucks. Use HTML5 whenever possible. There's a beta test on Youtube as well.

    +1. I've never had any problems with it using Flash (Hulu for example) but it happens all the time on youtube. So I'm guessing there has to be some buffering problems once a video is paused in HTML5.

    HTML5 works fine for me. Only Flash does have the issue on my machine.

    Pages tutorial choppy/youtube video buffering

    I have a new 27" iMac, and I am a iMac newbie. When I try to watch the Pages tutorial, it is choppy (similar to a buffering issue on YouTube). And when I watch YouTube videos, the buffering is constant. Any help?
