I have a macbook which is about a year old now and I'm having trouble watching any videos be it on youtube facebook any site. What will happen is the video starts then it will freeze and stop for a few seconds while the sound continues in the background. Then it will continue playing again and the process repeats many times now through a 3 minute or even longer video.

It means I can't watch anything as I miss it all now.

Any ideas?

You haven't by any chance upgraded to Snow Leopard have you? If so then you need to update java. Worked for both our laptops here.

Perform both a Software Update and an Adobe Flash Update (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/adobeflashplayer.html).

Yeah it was the adobe update that I needed. For some reason it didn't do its usual automatic update. But all is good now thanks guys

Nah - you gotta do the Adobe Flash update manually, when you see a playback problem, as it's Adobe, rather than Apple.
