Chrome on OS X Ready

Posted on 05 April 2009 by Demian Turner

chromeWell, by ready I mean it’s available, and apparently it’s one of the first usable builds.  Seems pretty cool though, and definitely blazingly fast already.  See the whole story.

Aside from great performance with Google apps/products, I’m looking forward to per-tab performance monitoring, I always get one tab that kills my whole Safari instance, have to re-start, put all the windows back in their respective spaces, PITA.

Mac OS X Flash/Youtube audio probs solved

Posted on 27 April 2008 by Demian Turner

Oh man I’ve spent so long not being able to watch Youtube videos, well they play but with no sound, bloody frustrating.  Tried many lines of attack through Google and only just managed to crack it.  The problem is widely reported but most of the suggested fixes don’t work.

  • voodoo fix #1: the most widely “documented” fix is to launch /Applications/Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup.app and change the properties for built-in output from the default 44khz, to 96khz, then back to 44 – doesn’t work
  • voodoo fix #2: this one I like, launch Garage Band and the audio prob will be fixed, nada
  • the fix that works: delete the ~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia folder

Above prob occurs with latest software at the time of writing, btw:

Update: this problem just happened to me again, using OS X 10.5.8 and Safari 4.0.3.  Again, use the fix that works, restart Safari and problem fixed.
