    So I have a web page I use to monitor my web cams. Each of those streams is a simple image with a src URL that looks like:

    With Safari 6, now I get about 5 seconds before all the images freeze and are no longer updated. I could time out and reload the page every 5 seconds, but that is certainly not as smooth as a live feed on the page.

    Anyone else experienced this and come up with a solution or workaround?

    I've noticed on Netflix that the video playback is choppy when it isn't full screen. Maybe there's a bug with video playback in safari 6

    Hey guys I've just noticed that when viewing music videos on YouTube the audio & video breaks up a lot as well. So far this is the only issue I have experienced with Mountain Lion.

    Something is defnitely wrong with OS X 10.8: OS animations are laggy. I ran Transformers HD trailers (1080p - Flash and HTML5) and video playback is choppy. Similar level of video decoding like under OS X 10.5 without GPU support. Horrible performance! OS X 10.8 should not be selled at all in this form. This is BETA. I tried other OS X version - 10.6 Snow Leopard: no problem; OS X 10.7 Lion: no problem.

    I also noticed total freeze during webpage loading on Safari 6 under OS X 10.7.4. It is worse and less stable than 5.x version.

    Was there ever a solution or work-around for webcams freezing after 5 seconds in Safari 6.0? I noticed this on my rMBP and wife's 2012 Air both running Mountain Lion.

    Things seemed to work fine until I noticed the freezing yesterday. Does not happen in Chrome or FireFox.
