    Question Full Screen YouTube Choppy and Laggy

    Hey everybody,

    Got a bit of an issue with my flash player on YouTube. Videos play fine unless put into full screen, where the video becomes choppy and laggy. Flash seems to do the same, as it takes a second to exit full screen. I have been looking around on the forums but am unable to find a fix for this. Anybody have any ideas? I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled adobe flash and I think the non-flash plugin (although if anybody has a link to that it'd be nice).

    Running a HP Pavilion Entertainment Laptop with ubuntu 8.1 and firefox 3.0.4.

    Thanks for any help I can get,

    Ha...figured it out. When installed it looks like ubuntu installs generic video drivers for the machine that work very well. (well enough that i didn't notice that the nvidia drivers were not installed for my card). Once i figured this out...I installed the recommended drivers in the package manager for my nvidia chipset...and BAM! It works. Awesome...hope this can help some others.

    Well I use the Ati drivers and they work very well and I have no problems with 3d games or anything like that. I have found that I can disable compiz and performance is improved but I still have the choppy video when compiz is enabled and that is not acceptable when I had no problems with earlier versions. I'm starting to have a feeling it was a real mistake to change from 8.04 to 8.10. Any help out there?

    When I view youTube videos they are choppy without even going to full screen. The Southpark website is the same way. What is causing the Flash content to play so poorly?

    Yeah I am beginning to think Adobe does not like Linux very much.


    If I make any progress getting my Flash to work better I will be sure to post it.
