    I dont know what type of media it is playing from Safari and I'm guessing its .MOV but after certain videos are played on the mac pro under safari and even closing the safari tab with the video and trying to view movie clips from say, all of a sudden the video lags and skips frames and just slow. Only when I quit safari all together and reopen safari and watch the same videos in will it be fast again... Is there some type of codec glitch or bug that causes this with .mov files??

    Probably not .mov... those are pretty unusual, as .mov format is ancient.. and sucks. Might be flash?

    Anyway, why are you using Safari? Use Firefox.

    I dont know I just prefer safari (I just like the looks of it + I like the feature of putting the cursor over a word on safari and while holding control + comand(apple key) and pressing the letter "d" and shows you the definition of that word).

    I just encountered such a problem (in Safari)

    I built a page with 3 embedded QTVR movies @320x240 resolution

    The movies are very, very choppy when viewed in Safari, but everything is smooth, fast, and crisp when the page is viewed under Firefox

    also, this seems to be only a problem of Safari 3.1

    There is a brand-new update to QuickTime (7.4.5)

    "QuickTime 7.4.5 includes fixes that enhance reliability, improve compatibility with third-party applications, and address security issues. This release is recommended for all QuickTime 7 users."

    ...going to install and see if this remedies it.

    I've had this problem for a long while now, even before the 3.1 update. I'm pretty sure it's rooted to the Flip4Mac plugin.
