Choppy flash video performance in google Chrome only

Postby icu » Tue May 14, 2013 3:14 pm

So this is the problem: flash videos from online streaming sites (youtube, vimeo, pornhub, etc.) play choppy just in chrome. If I play the same video in firefox it plays flawlessly, even in HD... What could be the problem? Does google chrome have its own flash plugin? How can I make it use the one firefox uses?

Thank you!

Here's the output of chrome://flash:

Yes for sure. Chrome has now PepperFlash and it's developed by Google.

Code: Select all

Flash plugin   11.7.700.169 /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so      <------ PepperFlash from Google Chrome
Flash plugin   11.2 r202 /opt/mint-flashplugin-11/libflashplayer.so (not used)             <------ Mint Flash plugin. Used in Firefox


Obviously you can disable Pepper in Chrome:
1-Open Google Chrome.
2-In the address bar type: chrome://plugins
3-Click details and go to Flash section.
4-Normally in the Pepper section you can click disable.

I don't have Google Chrome so I was unable to verify this information :)

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
