my macbook pro will not play a video without pausing every 11 seconds. PLEASE help me figure out what is wrong. very frustrating. I have already tried restarting

buckmacie,
has the video been completely downloaded onto your MacBook Pro when you start to play it? Or are you playing it while it downloads, AKA streaming it?

  • My MacBook Pro will not play YouTube videos ever since I downloaded and upgraded to OS X Mavericks. Any suggestions?

    I know that this is not an issue with my internet not working, because I have this problem regardless of which wireless network I am connected to. Thank you!

    Try unistalling and reinstalling

    If you're sure you've installed the latest version of Flash, take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. After each step, relaunch Safari and test. For a "missing plug-in" error, start with Step 5.
    1. If you're only having trouble with YouTube videos, sign in to your YouTube account and load this page. You may see a link with the text "Leave the HTML5 Trial." If so, click that link.
    2. If you're getting a "blocked plug-in" error, then from the menu bar select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Check Now. Quit and relaunch your browser.
    3. Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
    Services ▹ Open
    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open. Delete the following item, or anything with a similar name, if present:
              •          Flash Player (failing).plugin 
    You may be prompted for your login password.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combinationcommand-C. In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
    4. Re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from this page:
    Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player
    Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
    5. If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
    from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked Enable plug-ins.
    6. Select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.
    7. In the Safari preference window, select
    Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data
    Close the window. Then select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Delete All. Close the preference pane.
    Hope thi helps

  • My macbook pro will not play any videos what so ever. all comes up as plug in failure no matter what browser. i have updated everything. some one please help me?

  • My 2010 MacBook Pro started running slow a few days ago and is getting worse. I have run a report with EtreCheck that I can post.  Can someone please help me figure out what's wrong and how to fix it.  Thank you.

    Problem started after I unintentionally downloaded some adware 4 days ago. After lots of aggressive ads slowed down my browser I downloaded and ran AdwareMedic which seemed to do the job and browser was back to normal.  Then, possibly a coincidence, everything on the computer started running slower.  I've backed up everything and have run a EtreCheck report.

    When you have the problem, note the exact time: hour, minute, second.  
    These instructions must be carried out as an administrator. If you have only one user account, you are the administrator.
    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad and start typing the name.
    The title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    Each message in the log begins with the date and time when it was entered. Scroll back to the time you noted above.
    Select the messages entered from then until the end of the episode, or until they start to repeat, whichever comes first.
    Copy the messages to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    The log contains a vast amount of information, almost all of it useless for solving any particular problem. When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.

  • Please Help me Figure out What is Wrong with Itunes Video Uploads

    Hi all. I would be so greatful for someones help. Since I bought my Ipod Video I frequesntly purchase videos from Itunes. Recently, I purchased 8 diffent videos-- ranging from television shows to movies, etc... The problem is that I cannot download anything fromthe Itunes store. Eachtime Itunes goes to download the items that I have purchased I receive an error message for each of the items as follows:
    "There was a problem downloading “______”.
    Parts of the file seems to be corrupted. To redownload the file, choose “Check for Purchases” from the Store menu."
    The thing is that this happens with any videos that Ipurchase now, so I doubt that they are all currupted. Could this bean issue with my settings or something? MaybeI am a bit clueless, but it is quite frustrating that I have spent alot of $ on things that I can't actually watch The problem doesn't happen with regularmusic downloads.
    Any help is VERY GREATLY appreciated.

  • MacBook pro will not play a commercial video dvd?

    My 17" MacBook Pro will not play a commercial movie DVD.  The computer appears to referance the disc 5 times then ejects the disc.  I have never played any video on this computer before and I have had the computer for 2 year. I can not get the settings correct or something.   If anyone has any suggestions on this problem please let me know.

    Can you describe in a handful of bullet points:
    what content you are exporting (slideshows, home movies)
    how you did it in Aperture
    how exactly you burned it (program, settings, etc..)
    We need a bit more info... before you start reaching for your wallet
    But I must say, I nearly agree with ClayG on the replacement. DVD superdrives are cheap these days.
    Depending on how often you use it to watch or burn, I woudln't even bother having it fixed.
    If you use it once a week and are not on the road when you do, just get an external bus powered one - it will likely have a dual USB cable, so you'd need two USB sockets - I got one and it worked well

  • My Macbook Pro will not play a Disney DVD (Howl's Moving Castle). It says supported disc not available but it plays on my cousin's Macbook Pro.

    Basically my macbook pro will not play this one DVD. It is a dvd that is fresh out of the package that I order from amazon and it is the second dvd that I have tried. Amazon sent me a new dvd when there were problems but both are not working but my laptop will play all other dvds, including the bonus dvd that came with the dvd i am trying to watch. I tried playing the dvd in my cousin's macbook pro and it worked. I already repaired discs permissions and restarted my computer but i cannot get this dvd to play for the life of me. When I put it in the disc drive the laptop buzzes for a few seconds then spits it out. When I open dvd player before hand and hit play it gives the message "supported disc is not available"

    The laptop is about 2 years old, and I watch a lot of movies on it. I would think I had set the region but I could be wrong. I'm in North America wouldn't that be the preset? Also, how would you go about changing or double checking that. Also if a movie was from a collaboration of disney and studio ghibli (japanese studio) would that mean I have to change the region just for that one movie? It would be weird if it were that way because I have another movie by disney and studio ghibli, and it plays, for that matter so does the bonus feature disc that came with this movie....

  • MacBook Pro will not play or recognize dvd

    MacBook Pro will not play or recognize dvd

    It could be something wrong so i would sugest going to eBay and buying the same model you have that is listed for parts. These are usually cheap and most parts can still be used. Chances are that the disc drive will work because the "For Parts" means the computer does not work and the disc drive does not affect the computer's working order.

    I've tried reintalling Flash no difference.
    I was going to download Firefox but funny enough the tutorial that is played on the video screen comes up flashing and green.

    buckmacie,
    has the video been completely downloaded onto your MacBook Pro when you start to play it? Or are you playing it while it downloads, AKA streaming it?

  • Airplay-connected Macbook Pro Will Not Play Audio On Apple TV

    After upgrading to a Retina Macbook Pro running Mavericks (10.9.3), I can no longer play audio using AirPlay through my AppleTV 2. The video connection is flawless, yet when going into Sound > Output through System Preferences, I can not select AppleTV | AirPlay as an output device. Is this a hardware issue? Is there another fix available?

    That actually did the trick. Well played. It would be nice if that were in *any* of the support documentation for AirPlay.
    Many thanks.
