    Tired of trying to watch a vid while your fans are screaming like a 747 at take off? Here's how to experience the solution:
    1. join the YouTube html5 beta
    2. at this time, get WebKit**
    **this is because the latest Safari 4 release is a bit buggy with html5 video on YouTube. With the latest WebKit, it's smooth sailing. Apparently Chrome works well too.

    Ah, I missed that thread. I don't go very often to the Mac Peripherals area. No one suggested WebKit though. It really works superbly with the latest nightlies!

    Does anyone else have this problem? When rolling over certain elements, the related videos lose their right-justification.

    There is no Firefox support yet. Only browsers which support the H.264 video codec.

    In the thread referenced above, posters are blaming ClickToFlash. I see the same issue on Safari 4.x without ClickToFlash. It does not happen with Webkit (nor Chrome). A lot of people are blaming YouTube, but since it does not happen with Webkit I'm guessing it will be fixed on the browser side in an upcoming Safari release.

    There are also those in that thread who don't have ClickToFlash installed.

    It seems to be click to flashes "load h.264" setting is the culprit. Was having the same problem, and just disabled that (after reading that thread) and it fixed it.

    Perhaps not as old as your Liquid Cooled C2Q Windoze RIG (zing) ;)
