I am running an ATI HD 4550 DDR3 512mb video card, AMD Triple Core Processor 2.8Ghz, and 4Gigs of RAM. I have Ubuntu 8.1 and the only problem i'm having is that if i enable advanced desktop effects video performance gets choppy, if its off the playback smooth. This is running Compiz.
Has anyone found a way to run advanced desktop effects without compromising the video quality? i searched for threads on choppy playback and i havent been able to find an answer. Thanks for the help.
