    Hello, I have been viewing live video streams on my Mac fine now for quite some time, but just all of a sudden the other day when ever I go o a site hosting streaming live video the rainbow pinwheel pops right up, forever.

    I forcequit safari, reset it, then I went on to using firefox, same thing. I went into parallels desktop and using firefox on windows, it crashed as well. I even tried lowering the resolution, and nothing helped. I confirmed with other users of the site (video happens to be hosted by vimeo) that it's working for them. So this is a problem with my Mac. I've reset it, performed matinence with onyxand everything else. My internet is a direct broadband cable, and nothing has changed with it. anyone know what I can try to stop the stalling?

    Alright, found the problem. I had to update my adobe flash player, duh. I encourage all that are having video problems with their mac to do the same.

    I had the same problem before updating Flash. I'll post here if I experience any more browser hangs.

    I was going to suggest updating the flash player. Good Job on resolving your issue.
