alright, check it:
starting a week or two ago, any video i try to view within firefox (on quicktime) is very choppy, doesn't stream smoothly and the audio is off..
if i try and view the same video on safari, which i haven't used in months until i noticed this problem, the video streams fine once it is completely loaded, although takes significantly longer to load..
i'm talking about short clips of only a few minutes or so taking like a full minute to load, on my 2.16ghz intel with 2gb ram and plenty of free HDD space..
what can this be?!?!
(i don't really know how to start diagnosing the problem at all, but i did try the old uninstall/reinstall process.. no luck..)

Create a new user and try it on that user. See if the problem recurs there.
You could also try emptying the cache. Onyx, Ice Clean, and MainMenu are all freebies that can do that and more.
Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
