You should manually update Flash, if you are using the latest version of Firefox or Safari, Flash has a major issue. Just go to Adobe's website and install the latest version. That is what I had to do.

I've also gone so far as to install another copy of Snow Leopard on another harddrive using Kakewalk and it runs into the exact same problem with Flash video...
At this point I am stumped. Could this be some weird graphics card issue or is it a Flash issue that Adobe needs to address? Has nobody else run into this problem? Strangely enough, when I run Windows 7 using Parallels 5 on my machine, all of my videos run fine..
Here is a video which stops playback at "00:07" during the advertisement:
And another example here: http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/driving/...ideos%3Bhd%3B2
If anybody else has this issue please let me know.
(YouTube plays fine)
Just to see what you're getting into, I've played both of your provided examples several times with Safari 5, SL 10.6.4 on an AMD system (which is not as nice as Intel) without any problem.

Also just to make you happy, I've played both of those again with Firefox 3.6.8. They played nicely and beautifully without any problem.
Crap.. it must be my graphics card then. I am up to date with the latest version of my browsers and I have tried re-installing Adobe Flash Player multiple times. What else could cause this issue? Any ideas for how to fix?

I'm new and just replied using advanced and lost the post :). So, trying again. I'm a pro 3d animator and multimedia person...never built any hardware but want a fast machine that will run premiere and after effects (Adobe) and 3D studio max and maya. I'm looked up the quad processor and then found this site for a build configuration. Any suggestions for running these 64 bit applications. I need an open GL card and would like to run two monitors (but just put in what I need for now for one and have in place the ability to put in what I need for the 2nd monitor). What does a system like you're building cost? And is there any instuctions online to teach a newbie like myself how to build a machine or should I pay someone to build it? Last question, is a water cooled fan system a consideration or overkill? Forgive my complete ignorance, but, you all seem to really know machines and wanted to get your excellent advice. Thanks for the help!
Well, I will try to help you as best I can. This is a good build for running 64 bit Mac OS X, 32 bit Windows, and 64 bit Windows. This build cost me $700. As for instructions on how to build, it is very straight forward. I have provided instructions on the first post of this tutorial. Lastly, the water cooled fan system is not necessarily overkill, but it probably isn't needed. That is up to you.

CAN I INSTALL MAC ON THIS SYSTEM
WILL IT WORK AS GOOD AS MAC PRO, OR WHAT CHANGES I HAVE TO MAKE
Well being as the only thing I could find about your motherboard being compatible with MAc is in another language that I don't understand, I can't help you there. The RAM will work, as will the hard drive. I can't find much about the card though. Lastly, what type of DVD drive is it, SATA or IDE?
