When I play videos from msnbc.com or youtube, etc. the sound is much quieter with Elyssa and Hardy than with Windows. Elyssa is even quieter playback than Hardy and much, much quieter than Windows. Even with the volume at maximum, it is sometimes difficult to hear what is being said on the video. I have also noticed that when I try to play a video from msnbc.com, it doesn't load properly and I have to go to another video first and then go back to the one I wanted to play in order for it to load. Another thing I have noticed is that the video playback sometimes flickers. I am attributing that to Compiz-Fusion, but I also had Compiz-Fusion installed on Hardy and did not have the same issue with video playback flickering with Flash media. Does anyone have any idea as to why there are discrepancies with Elyssa and not with Hardy?
Anyone have any suggestions as to what may be the problems and how to fix them? I looked for any threads that may be applicable to this issue in both the Mint and Ubuntu forums, but didn't see anything. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
By the way, nice job on Elyssa. I was originally a convert to Ubuntu Gutsy, but switched to Daryna a short time later. I installed Hardy as soon as a stable version was out and liked it very much, but have now converted back to Mint with Elyssa. I am enjoying it very much.
Thanks in advance,
