Does Vimeo give you youtube-style problems?

  1. Yes, it's just as bad as youtube. Core / heat problems.

    For those with Youtube problems I'm curious:

    Is Vimeo any better for you?

    Sample Vimeo video

    I'm curious if Vimeo is more efficient or if it's just FLV in general.

    My macbook isn't connected to the internet at the moment so I can't compare the two, but I know that macs and FLV do not mix and have also experienced it myself on quite a few occasions. (Even the showroom macs budged when playing youtube - choppy playback, which I suppose is the problem you're experiencing too)

    I use Miro, and the video is perfect. Use youtube only for previewing stuff, if you like it, download it to your desktop!

    Miro's my favourite program, btw. Awesome :)
