Hi,

My PC's CPU usage really goes high when I take flash websites.

E.g http://money.rediff.com

I would really appreciate if someone can help.

Flash version I am using is 10.

I am new to Ubuntu, I normally use Synaptic Package Manager to install flash,
I see,
FlashPlugin-NonFree (Version 10.0.22.87 Ubuntu2) and FlashPluginInstaller (10.0.22.87 Ubuntu) Installed.

Please help.

Thanks,
Sylvester

Yea mine as well, I'd really like an answer from someone. Each time the CPU gets to about 100% and the fan starts going crazy until i leave the website.

Ubuntu 9.04, on both firefox and epiphany.

64 or 32. Either way, flash like java is cpu intensive. More so in Linux. Just be glad it works as well as it does. At one time you had to manually kill flash every 20 minutes or so. Or just not use it.
You could always try deleteing the plugin from ubuntu and downloading the deb from Adobe and then complain to them about performance.

Note 64-bit flash is still experimental, but it gets better with each release. Best practice, put your home disk on a seperate partition. Makes switching Linux versions types quick and easy.

Before I get a hail storm of 64 bit ppl telling what an idiot I am. Look at this website http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/. Adobe doesn't even recommend running 64-bit flash.


Important: Installing the Flash Player prerelease means you have accepted the terms of the Adobe Software License Agreement. This is prerelease software, not a final release.

I just double checked my own system, Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32 13.7% - 7.0% CPU useage running a flash animation and a flash mp3 player.
Check your version, see what works best on your system
Ubuntu non-free release
Ubuntu Open Source/Alternative/Free release
Offical release
prerelease (if your running a 64-bit system)
