Installed lubuntu 12.10 in a netbook and can't watch youtube videos very choppy and slow playback ! I tried to introduce to a friend of mine the lubuntu and its youtube performance really sucked.

Can you add the hardware specs to the question. Generally, flash on Linux sucks, nothing we can do about it. –  mikewhatever Dec 11 '12 at 19:50
Flash is OK, but it does depend on many things - the number of cores, connection speed, and what else the CPU is doing at the time. A new installation will often be busy indexing the repository lists and similar operations (forget the module responsible) and you need to see what else is going on. –  fabricator4 Dec 11 '12 at 20:02
