View Full Version : Karmic UNR & Intel 945GME Video Performance

January 10th, 2010, 10:08 PM
Having not experienced the issues with Jaunty and Intel display cards, I can't say whether this is a real problem or not. From what I can tell, MTRR is not a problem.

On my new Dell Mini 10v w/ Intel 945GME and a fresh install of Karmic UNR, video playback performance is only so-so.

Most YouTube-style Flash video is decent. Local H.264 playback from .m4v and .mov containers is flawless. But streaming Flash video originating as H.264 is dismally choppy - this includes Vimeo and Hulu-quality streaming video.

Is this about what I can expect from Karmic and a 945GME?

Having the same problem here . there is an slight improvement witch can be done by adding to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf a line like :
Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
Slight improvement for youtube movies, but still 0 improvement for flash games or other applications.

Another improvement for the flash application if u have Intel 945GME is to disaple Hardware Acceleration from flash player. Just play any flash application ( like an youtube video ) , right click => settings => disable hardware acceleration .
Also if u have personas , disable it.
i did those things and i can watch youtube flawlessly and play flash games almost perfect :)
