Like sooo many other Ubuntu users I'm suffering from choppy Flash video playback.
BUT ... Once downloaded (via Firefox' NetVideoHunter plugin), the same video plays ok in VLC 2.
The choppiness is not due to the network. I've tried jumping back in a fully buffered clip and it's just as choppy.
I assume it's the same driver in both cases. So can the explanation be found in the different players: VLC2, good; Shockwave, bad.
Is there anything I can do to make it play nicely when streaming?
I'm running Lubuntu 12.10 on a 2.4 GHz P4 w/ 2 GB RAM and a Radeon 9200SE on AGP.
