    Video lag


    Only does it on Facebook. Video only, sound is fine. Does it with all browsers. Changed a few settings but reverts back.

    Could be the Facebook server not keeping up or even your ISP. What does Facebook use, Flash?

    I would start by eliminating some of the possible slowdown areas. Are you using wireless? If yes, try connecting with a cable to your modem or router. Did this just start or has there always been lag?

    If you have a laptop does it do the same at other locations?

    Hmm, you do have the latest Flash browser plug-in installed on your computer? Which browser do you normally use?

    tried the update, no change. I have also noticed when scrolling it sticks for a second or two, again only on the fb page. this site causes no grief with scrolling. i installed fb from the store and have no problems with that. got me beat
