I've tried many distros and have not been able to get flash videos to work... until I tried Mint. I'm using Mint 7. I have an ASROCK 4COREDUAL-SATA2 PT880 775 mobo with a 2.5G dual core processor and 2 gigs of ram, and an older PCI Soundblaster card.
My question is, what does Mint do differently from other distros that flash works for me. I watch Hulu and Youtube a lot. I tried Debian, Sidix, Arch, Gentoo Sabayon, and others and no matter what I did it just would freeze my browser (Firefox or Opera), then it would occasionally start back up, but play really fast so it was unwatchable.
Great job and thanks for the wonderful distro, and please let me in on the secret!
