    Problems with video performance when viewing on forum?

    Anyone else having problems with youtube videos not playing well when viewed on the forum in the embedded tags?

    For me they never seem to buffer right, and I usually get lots of studder, where it stops, buffers more, then plays on, etc.

    For instance, I just clicked on the video in this post
    http://micechat.com/forums/movies/11...post1055615425

    The buffering never really got ahead of the playback, so it stopped a few times. After just a few seconds, I decided to go watch it on youtube instead (note I had not waiting for the whole thing to download).

    From the youtube page, it buffered WAY ahead of the actual video playback and was smooth as butter.

    I've seen this numerous other times over the last few months too. But it makes no sense to me because in both cases, the video is both coming from youtube, it's just a matter of how it's presented.

    Anyone else seeing this type of behavior?

    Me too.

    I don't even bother trying to play the video in the forum anymore. I go straight to the YouTube page.

    interesting... this is the only site I really see lots of videos on, so I don't have the exposure elsewhere to know if this is localized here or not.

    Which browsers do you guys use? Firefox 3.5 here
