Let's see how these drivers fare then. I'm not hugely impressed with ATIs drivers on Windows 7. I have two systems with ATI, my desktop has a 6950 and is 64 bit, my laptop has an X600 mobility(!) and is 32 bit and both run Windows 7. Both systems have the same issues with YouTube:
1) The video is corrupted and plays as though it started from a plain green key frame (i.e. wierd details move within a sea of bright green) when you start a video. This sometimes fixes itself within a few seconds otherwise you need to restart the clip to make it right.
2) If you scroll YouTube while the clip is playing, sometimes all text disappears and the video window goes plain black. After you stop scrolling, after a few seconds all returns to normal again.
3) I get quite frequent crashes if I jump between several videos in quick succession while looking for something. I get the firefox crash with the error report screen.
Numbers 2 and 3 occur much more at times of slow connection. I have had literally hundreds of occurrences of number 3 between the two systems!
Does anyone have experience of this? The laptop was fine before Windows 7 and both systems are quite regular. It happens so much that can't be the only one! I wonder if it's a compatability issue between Windows 7 / Firefox / Flash Player / ATI driver combination....
(Fuck, I should have started downloading these before writing all that!)
