    i bought mbp 2.66 ghz 512 mb geforce 9600 4 gb ram

    and there are occasional hick ups in youtube videos
    (every 30 seconds u can notice a very small hickup)
    (especialy HD)


    it's not that bad... but it's just something u don't want to see on a new laptop.

    is this my problem or do other mbp users experience this when they run safari 4 on mbp?

    btw: how do i test my hardware on mac os X?

    How fast is your connection/what router are you using?

    Have you tested Youtube on Firefox?

    I have some problems loading HD videos too, but I know it had more to do with my internet connection.

    i don't think so, cause my internet loading speed goes faster than the play speed.

    but it's surprising how each time there's 30 seconds between hick up

    i'll try firefox

    post a link to a specific video and note the time(s) of the HICCUP(s) if you want others to test.

    I’ve noticed this too, but on my Win7 laptop….maybe it’s a YouTube issue.

    It's not the video or the site for sure, as it plays just fine on my HP laptop. It sure sounds like a buffering issue on your client.

    I have a lower spec'ed MBP and have zero hiccups in any YouTube video. Keep in mind that Flash is VERY demanding on Macs because the d-bags at Adobe don't bother optimizing it. Don't try to run other intensive programs at the same time or other Flash videos or applications.
