OS X :: Bandwidth - Watch Video Podcasts - Firefox Start To Hang
Oct 12, 2009
I'm happily browsing the internet with firefox/safari and I decide to open up iTunes in order to play some music and it starts to download video podcasts. No problem right? I like to watch video podcasts... except suddenly, the pages I try to load in firefox start to hang. It is like they all start to time out. Until I pause the iTunes downloads, then everything starts to work properly again. It is not only iTunes that hogs the pipe, I also have this problem everytime time machine makes a backup. Does anybody else experience this? Anyone know how to fix it? I don't remember having this problem back when I was a windows user. I might just need a fresh OS/X install...
One day I had to look for a web page that only supporst firefox or explorer, I do not like other browser but safari, so I had to install that **** firefox, once I checcked that page, (an official page for governement) I uninstalled firefox, I do not like it and I rather my safari, suddenly I cannot watch video on youtube using my safari browser, some videos I can watch and a lot of them I cannot, videos that I have watched before, I checked my other mac wich is like a twin of mine only less ram and It works perfect on youtube.
Well, I didn't change or install anything but since this afternoon Safari began to pause about 3/4 of the way loading a page. It would hang for about 3 seconds, give me the color wheel then load the rest of the page.
So, I installed Firefox and Chrome and they both do the same thing.
I listen to and watch a lot of podcasts. Quite often, after I am done listening to a Audio Podcast I will watch a video podcast. Some times it gets stuck and won't play the video but plays audio fine. Anyone else have this problem?
I subscribe to a couple video Podcasts, but don't view them often. But one popped up that looked interesting so I tried and only got the audio.The video window did not open.I checked an older video that came with a purchased album and again, the sound played but the video did not open. No Video just Audio. I'm running iTunes 10.6.1 Lion 10.7.3
My 27" iMac, running OS 10.6.8, has started running slowly when loading Apps and when running Safari. Also, when powered, on It has started stopping on the grey screen before the Apple logo displays. To get past this I must turn the Mac off and then back on.
It must be some ad blocker or something, but I can't view videos. I can't seem to find what's causing it. I can go to YouTube and watch a video, but when someone posts a link, I am unable to make it play. I'll get a site with a black rectangle where the video is supposed to be. Happens on links from tweets too. Safari and Firefox both. I tried the Flash uninstall/reinstall/disc permission/restart routine twice.
I have a video from my iPhone playing in Quicktime, i hit the little share button ( on my iMac thru Quicktime ) i enter in all the YouTube info, the status bar goes and it does it things by always hands at the end where it says "waiting for youtube to process video" it can sit there for hours and still nothing will happen?
The video podcasts in the playlist open but dont (and cant) play, although when I drag the progress slider left to right it fast forwards. As I drag and I can see whats the video content. I am on 10.6.3 latest Itunes on Snow Leopard, having fell back to Snow Leopard from Lion yesterday.
These podcasts are mp4 - and VLC plays them perfectly, i have d/loaded Xiph, flip4mac, Mplayer X. Lame and these made no difference. I was watching these exact same files on the exact same machine yesterday. But under LION. the files aren't corrupt. Quicktime wont play them either. Quicktime is ticked to work in 32 bit mode.
I used to watch streaming video podcasts in iTunes and they would popup in a separate quicktime-type window. Since a recent update streaming podcasts appear in a non-adjustable window over iTunes and I am no longer able to select which portion of the podcast I would like to view. This is irritating.
I've looked through the settings and can't find anything that fixes this.
This is 10.6.2 on a Macbook Pro (Spring 2009?), with iTunes 9.
I bought my iMac a few months ago and still can't get to watch what I need to for my business. I breed and own Thoroughbred Race Horses and need to be able to watch races on the web. The people in the store said sure no problem but I still cannot. I have downloaded Flip4Mac which seems to have failed miserably plus Real Player, Quicktime etc.
Can someone do me a favor and tell me if they can watch this video?
I can't seem to watch video of any duration, now. Downloaded tv show and slowed to freeze, stills, with audio going forward. I used to be able to. Watching streaming video is also similar, though have the variable of the wireless to factor in. I have one of the original airs with regular hard drive. I turn off virtually every application, but still doesn't work!
I have been having my mbp for a while already. My brother recently send me a link to a live stream video, but I wasn't able to go in to watch. However, he was able to watch it on his PC. I wondered if anyone have experience that? and what can I do?
I am planning to build a home theater PC by using the Mac Mini, I am mainly going to be using it on stream video and BT. Will I be restricted to browse any website, to download and open movie/song files, or to watch live stream video?
I'm essentially looking for a an adapter between mini DisplayPort and RCA connectors. I'm using a 13 inch macbook pro to a TC with only the red, white, and yellow (RCA) connectors. Unfortunately I can not find the cable anywhere online.
I have an emac 700 mhz power pc g4 with 512 mb, running 10.4.11. I cannot watch any video or movies on line. When I play these movies the playback is slow, so the sound is faster than the movies. It looks like I am watching in slow motion. I have everything up to date on this computer.
i just bought this product. i have a dish network receiver, and only needed my imac 27 to be used as screen. i just connect Elgato Video Capture and installed the video capture software , this softare only give u a small video to view so i am looking for some other way i can watch TV thur Elgato Video Capture basically just a bigger windows thats about it ..after doing some research i found out i would be able to do that with EyeTV but its not compatible with Elgato Video Capture.
I've never had any success in watching videos posted on Apple's web site. All I ever get is a QuickTime icon, controls and what I assume is a loading bar flashing back and forth like Kitt's lightbar from Knight Rider! It will never start playing anything. I'm at work and on a Windows 7 x64 workstation. I've tried Firefox v13, IE9 and Safari v5.1.7 using QuickTime 7.7.1. Here is a screen shot of what I see..
I've just bought my first mac and loving it except one major problem. I'm using it as a media centre to play music, photos, movies etc and most importantly to watch catch up tv. Unfortunately I can't watch bbc iplayer, itv or channel four on demand. Each time I load a video it simply stalls at the beginning (except itv which just rotates through adverts). Now, I'm sure you need some info. I've installed the latest version of flash and it seems to be working, I'm using safari and this is a mac os x 10.5.8. I've been trying to fix it for over 3 hours now and I'm losing the lot.
I'd like to watch video from a Sony HDR camcorder on my MacBook Pro during the shoot. The camera has an HDMI output jack and I've got the HDMI converter that plugs into the Thunderbolt port. Is there any way to just watch it, using the MBP as a monitor?Â
It would really be great if the viewfinder mirrored to the MBP as well..
