Netflix PPA and Internet Streaming

Postby 1jovan2 » Fri Nov 30, 2012 7:00 pm

Hello. I'm new to linux. I just installed Mint 13 with Cinnamon 64 bit on a separate partition. I installed the Netflix PPA and it works but it is really choppy. Too choppy to watch. I also tried streaming Sirius radio and the sound was choppy. They weren't choppy on windows so I know my system is capable. My downloaded audio and video play great just not when streaming.

Is it because I am using a 64 bit Mint and netflix is 32 bit?
Would it work better if I used a different Ubuntu?
I'm open to all suggestions. Thank you
Computer Specs:
Pentium dual core 2.8Hz X 2
Intel G45/G43
64 Bit
6 Ram
Mint 13 Cinnamon - 64 Bit

I am new to Mint, myself. I tried that PPA on Ubuntu 12.04-desktop-AMD64 with no major glitches. My laptop is a Dual-Core T4500 with 8GB RAM.

I will try it on Mint 14 Cinnamon when I get a chance...
Try politeness; people will like you for it.
