    I've got the same issue with Safari on mac, especially with Vimeo player.

    Thanks for further support.

    Thank you for bug reporting, but I can't repeat the problem. I tried on WinXP ie8 (on old PC), Win7 ie8 (in emulator mode), it works as it should... Please make sure that cache is cleared and you use 9.2.2 version, as there were some issue before redarging video (but FF-related). You can always get latest version from build tool page - .

    I recorded video, in case I'm doing something wrong, please check it -

    Hi Dmitry,

    Thank you very much for the fast reply.

    On my case, it seems to be a bug with Safari 5.0 and 5.1 and Vimeo only, Youtube plays video perfectly.

    Here is a screen capture of the issue. The video is on the right side of the player.
    If I scroll, the video stick on the page like if the player was a mask overlay.
    I checked my configs and it's not a graphic card issue.

    You can simulate the bug on, select Safari 5.0 on Apple.

    Thanks again.

    I see normal slider and it plays Vimeo videos as usual, in Safar 5.0 (see attachment). There might be issues with Vimeo player if you're testing it locally, have you tried it on server?
