The other day my system was upgraded to using Flash 188.8.131.52.
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?

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
well, it seems like there is a bug in Flash version 184.108.40.206. [launchpad]
Here I did find some clues.
And now sounds is working like a charm again.
Also, when the next flash upgrade comes along, the automatic upgrade should as normal.
