    Youtube videos jumpy (video)
    Hey ya'll

    I've got a problem. I've had a macbook for years but I recently got a macbook pro and I have a problem I have never encountered before.

    When watching videos on youtube, it seems to jump around a lot. I installed the latest flashplayer and it is still doing it. It will do it on some videos everytime and won't do it at all on others.

    Any advice would be much appreciated as this is a brand new laptop and i'm feeling a little bit neurotic about its condition.

    Here's the video of the problem (sorry for the quality, i filmed it on a little camcorder I have - but you can clearly see the issue when the people are walking across the field):

    Switch to the HTML5 version of that video and let us know if that makes a difference.

    Nah it doesn't make any difference. The video is still jumping around. I haven't noticed it on anything else other than youtube. I watch full length episodes of things on megavideo and others but have never had this problem there.

    Youtube servers are shoddy at best. If the problem insists for a couple more days, you might consider reverting back to your older flash. Does the problem arise on other browsers?
