    Flash video, video and audio problems(lag, slowness) at AMD64 Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit

    Hello,

    I have a amd64 desktop, which I've used gentoo and linux mint before, and did not have issues with audio. Since few months I have ubuntu 12.04(32 bit version), and have horrible multimedia experience.

    It's my work PC, so video + music is not a must have, but it starts to upset me when I want to listen to music, watch youtube once in a while.

    My problems are:

    1) Flash videos are not watchable, both audio and video are jumpy.
    2) Downloaded videos(any format) and music lag once in a while, (it loops a specific part, like its a remix ).

    I have searched a lot and read the following threads, and tried suggestions but still the problems persist for me.

    Can it be because I have 32 bit OS on 64 bit hardware?

    Here are some output that may help:
