For a few months now I’ve been experiencing an intermittent problem that is hard to describe and I am currently unable to reproduce. Yep, this is going to be one of those problems.
TL/DR: Videos and other graphical content stop working properly on my Retina iMac.
The whole story:
On occasion when I’m trying to watch video on youtube or twitch on either Safari or Google Chrome the video will either not playback at all or it will play at light speed. The only solution is a system restart. It also causes other concurrent issues such as de sync with audio in other apps like games. I first thought it was a problem with youtube, but it seems to me that the problem is in the Mac somewhere either in the software or in the hardware but I’m not sure how to debug this issue. Any help (or even sympathy!) would be appreciated.
