Hi there,

I'm new and can't find the answer on any other part of the forum, though could be generic search words; I also posted this message on Absolute Beginners Forum but received no response. Not sure where to start with the below and advice would be appreciated!

I connect my laptop to the tv through a 15 pin pc to tv cable to stream from the Internet. When my laptop was on Windows previously, this worked fine. Since moving to Ubuntu, the video stream on the tv lags dramatically (unwatchable) showing about 1 frame per second.

I thought this might be a graphics card issue but my laptop is an advent, with intel graphics, which I gather is fully supported.

Any advice would be great!

Thanks!
