    I have the same issue for 2-3 months now. As far as i know its either Flashplayer's fault or some sort of bug in the new catalyst drivers.
    What im doing for youtube is choose the resolution BEFORE switching to fullscreen and for some reason this seems to help the video to load.

    Better than 12.1 in BF3 in Crossfire

    BF3 started giving me bluescreens with a Display Driver problem. That had not been a problem at all for me before 12.1. Problems, just not that problem.

    With Crossfire, I have to crank down the clocks from 875 to 800 in general. This did not help. Used CCC, MSI Afterburner and Gigabyte Easyboost with the same result. Used CAP and no CAP.

    Scrubbed the system with DriveSweeper and then installed 12.2 Preview with no "Crossfire Application Profiles".

    Now there is no problem.

    I cannot tell if this is any better than the 11 series drivers. It is definitely better than the 12.1.

    Hello all,
    I am using Samsung Series 7 notebook with:
    - Windows 7 64
    - AMD 6750M
    - 8 Gb RAM

    I had problem with NFS The Run as my original driver was from Feb 2011 and I have upgraded to Catalyst suite 12.1 and than to 12.2

    Driver was updated, but I not longer can open the Catalyst Command Center.
    Is there any solution possible?

    Thanks!

    Whats this mean?

    Build Info:
    DriverVer=02/14/2012, 8.950.0.0000
    8.95-120214a-133575E-ATI

    I got a HD7970 and my driver is showing version: 8.95-120214a-133575E-ATI

    Whats the difference between 8.950.0.0000 and 8.95-120214a-133575E-ATI ???

    Is it because its the HD7970?

    all non-WHQL drivers for the 8.95 code branch say 8.95.0.0000 regardless of the release/date..

    You have to watch the d3d and OGL versions...

    Just how AMD rolls...

    It is neither a flash or catalyst problem. It is the new buffering system that youtube is using. Instead of instantly changing quality and having to pause and rebuffer video, it does not wipe the old buffer and just increases the quality that it is buffering from a certain point onwards. So the video doesn't stop and the quality automatically increases after 5-10s.
