At work: XP with Firefox

Home: OS X with either safari or firefox

The firefox works better than safari for streaming video. Sometimes with safari i can have sound but no video. This usually happens with quicktime, and i have installed all of the updates and uch. With firefox i do not get the same problem with quicktime which leads me to believe it might be the browser, not quicktime.
Anyone have similar experience?
