Why are Flash applications so sluggish?
I am wondering, why is the HD video playback under Linux so bad? I mean, HD videos are laggy . I've tested many distos, on multiple PCs, but compared to Windows, the HD playback is always bad. Laggy all the time, and the online video playback? It's much worse. I tried both nvidia and amd video cards, the latest official drivers, even the open source drivers, but the HD playback performance is......
AMD E-300 with Radeon HD6310 (384 MB of RAM) Graphics, 4GB DDR3. The GPU is integrated, but I can run HD content on Windows without a problem, both locally and online, with flash player. I've tried many distros. Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Linux Mint, Arch Linux, ArchBang, Fedora, SuSE. They all have the same problem, laggy flash playback, even at 480p!
I really want to stick with Linux, but I can't because of this fact. Do you have any tips? Is there a secret that I don't know? Just tell me please.
