    so i have internet connection at BLAZING speeds but for some reason hulu lags like crazy and youtube is somewhat slow. the weird part is is that it still lags when im connected via ethernet (so could it possibly be my school internet provider?)

    NO! cause when I go home, my computer still laags with standard cable.

    Oh and on bootcamp, hulu runs great in windows...

    First off you should be using Hulu's desktop app.

    Secondly increase the buffer size.

    Thirdly..What ISP do you use ? 64 Mips is fast!!

    Am I missing something -- are you talking about something different from the fact that Flash video doesn't work very well in OS X (or Linux)? You said it doesn't lag or stutter in Bootcamp, right? I think them's just the breaks... unless/until Adobe does something about making Flash work well outside of Windows.

    I watch tv shows all the time (I guess its flash) I never have any lag. Try adding more memory.

    oh its not the actual flash lagging cause youtube/hulu commercials dont lag.
    i can pause it and let it buffer but id have to wake like 15 minutes...


    this is really bugging me cause my imac at home is like this too..
