Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have an IBM thinkpad with an Intel HD graphics card. It is a dualboot with Windows.

The video performance I am getting is very choppy. It does not matter if it is a Youtube video or from a file. It is choppy. The same files under windows are not. This is not an issue of flash. I have tried other formats as well, with the same results. I have also tried a number of different players. Using smplayer I have a feeling that it may be connected to the audio. Changing the settings for the output driver does change how choppy it is. It is more or less, but always choppy..

If you think audio is the problem then see this link howto.blbosti.com/2010/04/… on making Alsa your default instead of PulseAudio –  nitstorm May 31 '11 at 23:08
