The other day my system was upgraded to using Flash
Since then I have had a slight "stutter" or "choppy" audio on playbacks. I would guess it is a buffer under run problem.

Anyone knows what has happened with the new flash-release?

well, it seems like there is a bug in Flash version [launchpad]

Here I did find some clues.
So I downloaded the previous version (available from Abode as binaries), replaced by existing /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.sowith the one from the previous version.

And now sounds is working like a charm again.

Also, when the next flash upgrade comes along, the automatic upgrade should as normal.

Which version worked for you? – Elazar Leibovich Jul 19 '12 at 8:39

Switch from Unity to Unity 2D ("Ubuntu 2D" on the login screen).

I did this and I can now play full-screen Flash video with no audio stutter.

Before I switched, Flash audio would stutter.

This is on 12.04 LTS 32-bit, on a Pentium T2600 with 3GB RAM, and version of the flashplugin-installer package.
