Choppy on Mac

Postby TimS » May 8th, 2012, 7:08 am

Anyone with a mac have problems with the video playback being choppy every now and then. Sound keeps going, but the video will freeze for a few secs and continue on. hn

That is the unfortunate thing about silverlight, its not buffering enough in an advance to avoid problems with spikes in video.

In the future we will definitely try to see if we can get silverlight to somehow allow videos to load in advance!

That would be nice. I tried the WM player plug in and ohhhh boy does that even suck on a mac!! But what is funny is a while back, I tried to do some stuff on AC with safari and it would not work, so I went to Firefox. Work o.k. on firefox, but thought I would try chrome. Worked great on crome except for the video thing, did some research and found out that silverlight isn't really support on chrome. Went back to safari, and it works awesome now with very little video issues. So I am just stumped.. After I get an iMac for my wife, I might take her PC (I hate windows) and plug that into my tv and use that. Not sure yet.

Well if you will use it just for watching it shouldn't be to bad. I have an older laptop just sitting by the TV at all times so I can watch on the bigger screen.

Ya, all it will be used for is watching stuff online and basic net surfing. I know it will handle some decent games but I got a 360 and ps3 for that.
