Client has some fluttering noises when playing web videos on the Windows side, and some slow downs.

I feel that upgrading from Parallels 9 to 10 might help with these.

Are there any known problems with Parallels 10?


Thanks.

I had none and in any case 10 has been out for a while  so no doubt any problems there might have been have been fixed

I've not had any issues with Parallels 10, but playing videos, in a virtual machine, and issues, could be resources.

I'd second Andrew's notice .. Parallels 10 works fine for me on OSX 10.10 Yosemite .. I upgraded and after re-running the Parallels tools on each VM I've had no performance issues.
There have been several updates to Parallels 10 since it was released months ago which address a range of small issues but I've had no problems with WinXP/7&8 VMs.

If there are issues with stuttering / stalling video .. there's no guarantee (in fact it is probably unlikely) that an upgrade will fix the issue.  Have you checked the RAM allocated to Parallels and the overall speed and performance of the Mac?

When running Parallels the first things I check are the overall RAM on the Mac, how much RAM is allocated to Parallels.  The CPU and speed of the Mac, if the HArd drive is SSD or not, the overall load on the CPU when Parallels is running .. these will affect performance most.
