    Hi All,

    Having watched a couple of Revision 3's podcasts (Tekzilla and HD Nation), at about 20 minutes into it, my MBP freezes for maybe 10 seconds, then the video continues to play, but not in the same place where it left off.

    Movies purchased from the iTunes store (standard def) play fine with no problems, and the HD podcasts play fine, with the exception of the freeze. Niot had any other issues with the MBP.

    I'm using the 9600M GT card, so I'm not sure why it's freezing.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    It's your Flash Player most likely.

    Adobe Flash Player cripples Macs.

    Flash player? I'm playing them through iTunes though.

    I never had a problem on my Mac Mini. I wonder if it's worth installing Perian? I never had installed on the Mac Mini though.

    Confused.

    What if you use the 9400m, do you have the same issue?

    I've had the same problem on my MBP for awhile as well. Maybe the 9400M is still not enough for HD videos?
