    Flash video streamed from the web is not smooth. It moved


    When I stream television shows from the web, the picture is not smooth. It moves in spurts. It appears to move at normal speed for a microsecond then another, and another, ad infinitum. Flash player if comletely up to date. Any suggestions?

    I usually use Chrome (latest beta) but it does the same thing in IE 10. In Chrome, I can turn the acceleration of using right click when viewing a video, but when you right click in IE10 while playing a video, you get a different set of options from Adobe, non of which are disable or enable hardware acceleration.

    In any instance, the problem persists regardless of whether or not I have acceleration enabled. Perhaps I should try to disable acceleration from the ATI control panel itself and see if this solves the issue.

    Turning off Pepper Flash made flash videos play better for me.
    Before the sound wouldn't play.
    Some videos are still jerky but that seems to be because of a lack of buffering.

    I have disabled pepperflash per your instructions. I'll let you know if this improves video performance. Thanks for the reply.

    I love forums, and the knowledgeable people who participate in them.
