Pulsating picture during download of large panoramas

Post by Vestland » Sat Nov 27, 2010 8:45 am

If I zoom into this picture on my 27" Mac screen http://www.panoramas.no/H/rovar/Hilleroyzoom/index.html, the picture is pulsating for a several minutes at a rate of maybe 0,5 second until it eventually stops. I assume this has to do with the Mac being busy downloading tiles. Is it possible to avoid this from happening? For smaller pictures the problem is of no consequence as it last for just seconds, but for big pictures like this it is very annoying. On a small PC laptop the problem i can not see the pulsation, so maybe it is a Mac problem or noticeable only on large monitors.
the problem is the same on both Safari and Firefox.

On my Mac it works beautifully in Safari and Firefox. Perhaps it's a bandwidth issue. Maybe someone can test with a slower internet connection...

Both works fine as intended, and the pulsation is just as visible even then.

On my macbookpro it works like a charm.
Because it also happens on Smooth's PC so it could be related to Flash.
Installing the latest Flash perhaps can solve the issue,
