Choppy Youtube Playback

Postby stokedboss » Sat Apr 27, 2013 11:09 pm

Hey everyone
I just installed Mint 14 Cinamon on an HP Laptop. Everything runs great except for watching videos on YouTube. Playback is painfully choppy. I installed the latest ATI drivers, and updated flash to no avail. Is there something I'm missing? I'm using Chromium as my browser.

Laptop specs:
AMD C-50 processor
3Gb RAM
ATI HD 6250

Okay I don't think its a problem with my hardware, If I download the video it plays back fine at full screen. So I think it's a problem with Flash? It doesn't matter if I use Firefox or Chromium to play the video it's still always choppy. Any ideas, or do I need to post somewhere else?

Same here except both youtube videos in HD and even 720p MKV's are slow and choppy. My CPU should have no problem blasting through 1080p video files without needing much gpu assistants.
