Quit unexpected, relaunched, and still crashed. I even reset the app settings and relaunched, but it didn't work. I have 10.5.8.

What is your broadband speed? Have you tested it?

Flash sucks on the Mac. Perhaps that is where the problem is?

Perhaps your ISP is throttling your access?

Is the YouTube connection the only internet access you have going?

Youtube isn't exactly fast when viewing any HD material.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

Have you updated Onyx lately ? I ask because I had this problem a week or so ago and found that the newest onyx that was downloaded only works with 10.6+

Clay

ps if it helps the new onyx icon for SL is blue but the one for 10.5 is purple.
