Hello to all of you!

I have sucssesfully install Hazards Snow Leopard today and updated to 10.6.8 using Legacy kernel for 10.6.8.

Everything works great including games and HD video playback in vlc, the only problem i face is video playback in flash (youtube, dailymotion etc) freezes every 2-3 seconds, if i play youtube videos with html5 everything works great!

problem occours on both chrome and safari!


my build:
Asus M2N-SLI
AMD X2 6000+
nVidia GeForce 9600GT
3 SATA HDDs
1 SATA DVD-RW
2GB RAM

Just to add: Flash in safari is updated to last one, and in chrome the included one with latest chrome.

What about running Safari in 32-bit mode?
That did the trick for me as I had a similar issue with flash and video playback in Safari on 10.6.8 on my AMD machine (same cpu ^^, but MSI board).
Are you using GraphicsEnabler=Yes, NVEnabler.kext or ATYInit.kext? I had some issues with GraphicsEnabler. Video was
juddering on my 8600 GT, i then used NVEnabler or ATYInit. Both worked fine for me and fixed my video issues. I had some issues too when i moved a window. The content in the windows freezed.

i cant see any 32bit option so i think my computer runs in 32bit mode (i think because of the nforceata.kext)
im using nvenabler.kext
i dont have any other issues with my video performance, for example i play CS:Souce and Batman: Arkham Asylum without a glitch!

so i think the problem is on flash player only! any other idea?

thanks for reply!

Also some Flash games i tried in FB run very well!

Have you done patching yet? ; http://www.osx86.net...ps-working.html
Most of the issues i had were fixed by patching some system files. (I use 64-bit mode aka "-force64")
I would suggest to backup your files before doing that. I don't think it harms your system, but just in case ;-)
Maybe this could also help you : http://www.insanelym...howtopic=253773

Btw. you can easily check if you're on 32 or 64-bit. Open "Activity Monitor" and have a look on the right side. Does it say "Intel (64 bit)" or just "Intel"?

i dont think i can run in 64bit because AppleNForceATA.kext is 32bit only, whenever i try to boot in 64bit mode it load superVIAATA.kext and i get still waiting for root device! any other suggestion besides 64bit?

(im on 32 bit, i run uname -a and it says kernel i386)

Your second solution ( http://www.insanelym...howtopic=253773 ) Worked and improved alot my flash experience!

I also found a 64bit applenforceata kext, but when i boot in 64, only 64bit apps run, chrome, msn, utorrent and stuff crashing at oppening!

any idea? thank you very much for the solution!

64-Bit mode on AMD isn't good. You can't run 32-bit apps on it. Boot with "arch=i386 -force64". System itself runs on 32-bit, but you're able to run 64-bit apps. You'll probably have to run Safari in 32-bit mode.

EDIT: And you don't need 64-bit compatible drivers too ;-)
