    I watch a lot of online video – mostly on YouTube. In recent months, I have noticed a significant problem with the video “stuttering” during playback – almost like it’s a series of stills rather than a moving picture. This problem clears up when I clear my cache and then relaunch Safari.

    It would seem that Safari needs more memory for the cache, but I cannot find anyplace to give it more memory. It is also curious that this has not always been a problem and suddenly becomes one. It may have started when I upgraded to the latest version of Safari, but can’t be sure about that.

    Can anyone help me eliminate this online video issue?

    same problem here!!!

    i just bought this PB titanium 2 weeks ago, its my first mac and i have the same problem.
    i have a 1ghz processor and 1 gb of ram and 64mb of video ram.
    i tryed using safari and firefox both react the same.
    if i knew that this powerbook was like this i would never buy it.
    i had a gateway that was older than this PB and it didn't have the this porblem.
    i hope this can be solved?
    what are your specs?

    you got some good specs and your still have the same problem as me.
    i have a older gateway laptop with windows os 600mhz and 512mb and the videos play fine.
    i startin to think theres something wrong with these apple os or apps.
    i hope someone replys and helps us solve this problem before i throw this powerbook out the window.
