Hey forum.
I have a mainboard ATI HD4200 and i have dropping frames while playing videos,even SD or streaming like on youtube.I also see like cuts in the videos.I have the installed the 10.3 driver from the ATI website,because i couldn't get the open-source working for some reason.
Anyway on the Win 7 partition i can get HD videos playing with no issue

The glxgears shows just 350-430fps.I know that's not a trusted benchmark,but researching the forum i saw users with over 1000fps with less powerful configurations.

Anyway i have a Athlon64 x2 2.5ghz with 1.5GB Ram and 512mb dedicated to the HD4200.Running ubuntu 9.10

If you have compiz, try turning it off.
