    I received a new MBP for Christmas. It's a great machine, and I am really liking Mac so far.

    I did a reinstall on the OS after about a day of use. I thought it would be a good way to become familiar with the system, as I had been watching all the tutorial videos trying to become an expert.

    Everything seems fine after the reinstall. I deleted the partition, installed the OS/apps, let the updates run, and then renamed the hard drive back to Macintosh HD.

    I noticed two things since reinstalling.

    #1) Videos seem to load slower (apple tutorials)

    #2) They no longer auto-play like they originally did before the reinstall.


    I watched an entire HD stream of South Park with no stuttering prior to the reinstall. Now, I can't even get through 30secs of low quality without buffering.

    I checked on my PC, and none of these issues are happening so it's not an internet thing.

    How can I fix/change this?

    I have a genius bar appointment tomorrow. I called applecare, and the guy seemed clueless.

    Could this have to do with browser plugins? What browser are you using? Also did you install all the system updates after you did the reinstall?
