Boxee Box Browser - Weird Video Cache Bug?
Ok I'll try my best to explain this bug. But it occurs fairly frequently on the Boxee Box browser. So I'm watching a video on Youtube or Ustream or Justin.tv or Xfinity, etc. (usually I'll use an app that opens up one of these video sites), then when I view another video, that's when I notice this bug.
It loads the video, I can hear the audio playing fine, but the video is a still screenshot (yes screenshot) of the previous video that was loaded..To fix it, I have to restart Boxee.
This happens randomly but fairly often. Anyone else experience this issue? Can't find anything on Jira...it's really annoying 'cause it effectively breaks the browser temporarily. A browser cache issue?

Yeah seems to happen a lot when there are at least two flash objects (video, audio, etc.) on the same page. Which is just made worse sense many ads today are flash too.
Lots of different bugs reports about this type of thing.
Here are just 2 of them:

yeah i had that it auto zoomed into a flash ad so the audio started and i had the ad going in full screen, going back to the browser and full screened manually easy fix.
Since then i have added scripts on my router running DD-WRT to block all ads so it looks nicer when browsing and NO fu*king ads
