Details

(Whiteboard: [platform-rel-Youtube])

Steps:

1. Start Firefox 10.0 Beta 3
2. Go to youtube and start six random videos at the same time

Expected:

Each videos should run smoothly without interruption.

Actual:

Each video running becomes choppy (i.e. not smooth).

Test Case Used:

Six Movie Trailers (e.g. Dark Knight Rises) running simultaneously on Youtube.

OS: Windows XP
RAM: 3.25 GB
Flash Player Version: 10.3.183.11
Is this reproducible with Flash Player 11?
Also, similar to bug 689121?
Video/Audio is for HTML5 video and audio.  Are you using HTML5 youtube or Flash?
With Flash Player 11, it's reproducible with nine youtube videos running simultaneously, but not six. 

Didn't get a crash with nine youtube videos that bug 689121 identifies, but the test case used in that bug is definitely similar.

I am using flash with youtube.
