    When I try to watch videos on YouTube in Safari, they play normally and then after scanning a few times, the video freezes and the audio plays. I have to constantly reload to get it to continue playing, and then the cycle continues. I have fast internet, bandwidth isn't a problem. I don't know what to do and it can be counterproductive to open videos in Chrome. Does anyone else have this annoying problem? What do I do to fix it?

    I have been dealing with the same and there is nothing that can be done about it as it seems to be some kind of bug (perhaps with html5?) in safari. Using chrome is the only alternative that I found.
