live stream does not play in Safari browser on a Mac?

Recently I had way too many help requests from Mac users who could not view an RTMP Flash stream in the Safari browser.

Is anyone else having this problem? and do you have a solution?

thanks in advance -

Try having them turn off acceleration. I don’t think there is a programmatic way to do it.


that didn’t help :frowning: - Mac users were continually bitching that recommending that meant we didn’t know what we were talking about - I think its a Flash issue with Apple, not something on our end…
