Because rawhide is a daily moving development target. If there's a
large update (like when rawhide was blocked for the creation of
F11-Beta) there could 100s of updates in a day. See the daily rawhide
report on the fedora-devel list for a general overview.

Are there bugzilla reports for these? What do you mean by 'moving
pictures', do you mean recording video or playing video?

I believe this is being worked on.
