Windows 7: YOUTUBE and HTML5 Video playback FAIL

YOUTUBE and HTML5 Video playback FAIL

hello, did u guys noticed that since today 2010-09-30 youtube fully switched to html5 forcing videos show only in html5 not using flash? Im using Chrome and video playback in normal mode (not ewen HD) lags like ****, video and audio synch is bad, sound goes way futher as video, flash used to play smooch. I noticed that Opera still uses flash cause Opora dont supports html5 yet, so youtube somehow gives old construction webpage to Opera.

Any others causing this problem to?

YouTube via HTML5 is still in Beta... you can go HERE get all the information and either opt in or opt out at any time.

I s'ppose it depends where you live and what's your connection. I don't experience any lag no matter if I watch via Flash player or via HTML5.

IE9 and YouTube HTML5 video
I know you can easily opt in and out of the trial but I wanted to see how others running IE9 find using youtube HTML5. On my system which is a sandy bridge laptop (win 7 ultimate) everything runs brilliant under normal flash. But for HTML5 not so good. Embedded HTML5 vids within YouTube run fine...

Not sure which forum section to place this in. My pc is Win 7 64 SP1, all updates (including video drivers) should be there. I don't go to Youtube a lot, but tried this morning, and the video was extremely dark (normal audio). Strange, but the teaser commercial on some of the videos was...
