More Flash Questions

Postby Slidewinder » Tue Apr 14, 2009 1:09 pm

I've searched the boards and I'm well aware of the common flash problems, but mine seems to be a bit different.
Fluxbox CE, but I had the some problem w/ Gnome
I'm running a Lenovo Ideapad S10, so fairly low power, on board video.

Flash videos on some sites are choppy. Never drops out, just sticky, audio is the same.
For example, video clips you might find at, or, when watched in the standard size in the browser window. The real surprise is that the video plays very smoothly when watched "full screen".
I do not have this issue on the Youtube site. Maybe someone smarter than me could look at the code of those two sites and determine a difference in the flash content.

I've already done an install of the flashplugin-nonfree, but I've also tried the adobe-flashplugin and had the same results. I'm using Synaptic.
I thought it could be hardware, but the fact that it plays better in full-screen makes me doubt that.

I'm pretty much a newbie, been playing around with mint for 6 months or so. Go easy on me.

I've seen some reports on the 945GME but right now I don't find the topic I'm looking for.
You might benefit from a newer Intel driver, but see my signature
If you only have the problem that you must watch some flash content in full screen I'm afraid trying to solve it may cause bigger problems

Edited a typo / Husse
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I have 3 computers networked in my house. Each is running Mint 6. My flash problem is that I get a note that says that a script in a movie running on the page is slowing down Adobe Flash 10 and could cause my computer to become unresponsive. It then asks if I want to abort the script. I say yes, and the note goes away and I won't see it usually until I restart Firefox. Each of my computers has shown me this note. It is a slight annoyance in an otherwise great Minty experience. Has this been a problem for anyone else?
