Trying to find hint for a problem with using multiple desktops via fast user switching on a Mac. It appears that some applications playing video (EyeTV, QuickTime, Skype) freeze when a user connected via VNC interacts with his desktop. Rainbow wheel is displayed and nothing happens until the user at physical screen switches to another application and back.
VLC is apparently not impacted by the problem. Here is a report where other EyeTV users discuss the issue: http://forums.elgato.com/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=1518
Elgato claims they need to be “active” users, while it is the case. My posts in that thread disappeared somehow, not sure what is going on. But considering other applications having the same problem, it appears more of Vine server issue.
I would appreciate if someone could have a look at this.
