    Hello

    So my ultimate test for flash video is to run a HD stream of a programme on iPlayer in Safari. This morning I ran Eastenders full screen and the animation of the opening credits was jittery. Also I ran Masterchef and the audio was out of sync with video.

    If I turn off HD open it's fine.

    Anyone else? I don't remember how my cMBP 13 with Intel 5000 performed on this test.

    Slow internet connection barely keeping up? Might be worth starting the video, then pausing for a while to let it buffer properly. That works wonders for me on youtube 720p videos with my so-so dsl connection.

    And the 2013 MBA is easily good enough to run HD video. My 2012 is, as is my 2009 MBP (with much more heat). I'd try updating flash, rebooting and trying again. If that doesn't work, use a ram checker to make sure that is ok.
