Description

7 years ago
On many sites that have multiple flash videos playing (eg a flash video which is the content and a flash video or two which are ads), the content video doesn't play reliably or smoothly. If I wave my mouse over the video, though, it refreshes fairly reliably.

I'm not sure whether this is Mac-specific, or even specific ad and content-specific. (I don't know enough about the different video formats Flash supports.)

I should note that if you make the ad display: none with the inspector & style editor, the choppiness goes away.
Could you post a couple of examples?
This is likely a regression from turning on async plugins. Plugins instance don't throttle themselves and sarve themselves. Ill take this bug.

Resolving old bugs which are likely not relevant any more, since NPAPI plugins are deprecated.
