    I'm trying to run OS X (10.8.1) without flash.

    So I have several tabs open (Safari). I start a html5 video. For some time I go to another tab. When I come back to the html5 video tab, the video starts fast-forwarding from where it was when I last left the tab. So it seems like when I switch tabs, the audio plays fine but the video stops until I go back to the tab and then the video fast-forward until it comes to the time where the audio is. This is of course not how I want it to be, I want the video to run in the background as you get with e.g. flash.

    I hope someone understand what I mean.

    Anyone get the same behaviour? Anyone knows why I get this behaviour? Anyone knows if I can fix it?


    edit: it was videos on that I have tested on.

    Yep, i have the same with HTML 5 youtube videos, so at least there is noting wrong with your machine:)
    I don't know why or how to fix it though, couldn't find anything online
