Flash

Postby alberto_chaos » Wed May 02, 2012 12:18 am

Hello, I've installed LMDE XFCE today, solved some issues, then installed UP4, solved some more issues, then I've just tried to load a 1080p flash video at youtube and it is buggy, around 10fps, audio is great, but video cannot synch of course, though it drop a lot of frames trying. What could it be?

Thanks in advance.

I solved it by installing the flash aid add on in firefox. Just follow the instructions to install flash, but go with the beta version, it works better.

Chrome comes with Flash built in, I always disable the flashplugin that Firefox using since they both show up in about:plugins on Chrome.

Try disabling hardware acceleration, it has been buggy in Adobe Flash for Linux for a long long time.

For other browsers than Chrome try upgrading your version of flash.
as root run

Code: Select all

update-flashplugin-nonfree --install


While the Flash-aid extension may work it is not made for Debian/LMDE, stick with doing things the Debian way and you will have fewer problems.

Thanks craigevil, but unfortunately I can't unmark the checkbox about hardware acceleration, I cannot even click the in the settings box, using <tab> and <space> I can navigate and interact with it, but not uncheck this options, it would probably solve this issue from what I've heard...
