I’ve never experienced this with other streaming services. However, I just signed up for Disney+ and have been watching some shows in the browser on my 2015 27" Retina iMac. Now I’m regularly interrupted by the Safari notification that the browser window I have open for streaming is using too much memory. It also automatically closes and opens back up at least once per 30 minute program. As I said, this doesn’t happen with any other streaming service, only Disney+. Is anyone familiar with this sort of problem and how to solve it, or is it just a poor coding problem with Disney and I should try using a different browser for Disney+?
I haven’t watched Disney+ on anything other than TV or iPad, but I do remember seeing that there is a free app called Clicker for Disney+ that might be worth checking out.
Just a quick update to this old thread. Safari still has issues with Disney+ But, the Safari Technology Preview does not. I’m able to watch full screen shows on Disney+ in the technology preview without any issues and no warnings about memory usage.
(Also Reddit works without any issues in the technology preview too.)
They even have apps for other platforms such as YouTube and YouTube TV.
