Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Thanks.. 'jes sleuthin-fer-Gotcha!s or some decent Remover kit.
EFF sez: browser not supported. The fuels! [/Inspector Clouseau]
Can't easily ditch Safari ..it's already a new arm-let within the DNA :-/

New That seems to be a legal issue
EFF got heartburn after it read Apple's iOS developer agreement. A lot of that carries over to MacOS if you want to be part of the walled garden.

I'll go with Scott on the cause. This is likely an ad or other script run amok. Javascript is very susceptible to (lack of) optimizations in the JS engine. Safari is tied to the OS version, so that puts you in SOL territory when it comes to sidestepping that particular problem when the hardware falls off Apple's good list.
New Ugh; quandary then.
Can't muzzle JS (I presume.. or shouldn't if you could?)
Wonder though: have steadfastly refused the recent Mudbrick-Tech nags to get their f-ing about-monthly Bug-fix.
Is their product That Bad that ya gots to nuke yer browser/on demand? now.. but..
mayhap their gadgetry (does anyone but BBC still use this for videos?) still. Maybe the leak came from them/somewhere in the packet-making games?

Maybe I should acquiesce and see if it also stops: previous Duh-access bad-code.
Thinking on that.. not enough chops to see if that idea is bollocks. Iggerance is a terrible Thing. (Except where it brings bliss, I heard.)

Thanks for the explanation; Apple be such biz-$$obsessed-Prigs, dealing with ackshul People (kinda like Jobs?)

PS: know what 'mdworker' OS small-process does?
Noted several iterations with consecutive er, serial numbers: nuked all but one last stab, apparently to no ill effect But.. ... (Jeez, and I thought PDP-8/octal was a PITA (what with schlepping 10" (?) tapes, punch-cards to the CDC-6600, just for a change or two.)

New Mudbrick Flashplayer?
That thing should be nuked from orbit. It is beyond redemption/salvation/...

Its life support is scheduled for termination next year. Most commercial sites have switched to HTML5. I can't think of any major site, including the Beeb (using the Paris disaster as proof :-( ), which still requires Flash.

However, unless a site contains Flash, it shouldn't rear its head.

mdworker is the indexer (or part thereof) of the Spotlight search facility. It will come back as long as the system thinks there is something left to index.
New Thank you ..Thank you.
I cannot imagine how a one can carry about so much [Useful!] matters in the jelloware.. mdworker is ... free of all criminal intent.

As to Mudbrick; I had thought that its perpetual mediocrity was due to be rendered obsolescent obsolete by 'something'; ah Yess: HTML5 (whose adoption surely must be in full ascension by now). So I shall proceed towards delivering the message to the Mud people:
"Thanks for all the fish; I've gone back to WordStar in CP/M." (now where's that daisy-wheel printer gone?)

You sir, are: that jeweled-left-eye in some Heathen idol. :-)
New ~30 years of trying to stay ahead of this crap. But Google helps. A lot ;-)
New I uninstalled it years ago.
It comes with a price, e.g. no BBC videos, but I've been resolute.

New wat
BBC doesn't use flash.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-europe-47941114/notre-dame-fire-hymns-sung-in-the-street-as-cathedral-burns

^^ no Flash. My Chrome doesn't allow it at work (ask first). My Edge at home has it turned off altogether.
New Well, after a second or so I get "This content doesn't seem to be working."
"Try again?" which is a loop with no joy.

New This works fine for me on Chrome on Win10.
https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-asia-47954950/once-destroyed-by-the-taliban-the-buddha-statues-live-again

I don't get a popup asking about Flash (the way I do with the NWS local radar page).

Does it not work for you?

Good luck!

Cheers,
Scott.
New Not on a Mac running Firefox the way I have it set up with NoScript..
It turns out to be that NoScript is the culprit that's killing the video. The video is fine if I temporarily allow all non-BBC scripts.

Problem solved! :)

New There's one free online game I like to play that use it
I only allow it on that one site. Haven't noticed the lack anywhere else.
