    I have given up with this. All suggestions, everything I know, it has been useless. Using Flash, audio starts normally but video freezes for a few seconds.

    I will reinstall when I find enough energy. Would be nice to find a reason for this, though.

    Yea I agree,
    The only thing I can think of is internet connection but your way closer to Finland than I ?
    I'll review Bill's post which was the only thing that actually worked,
    Cheers.

    I have a fast and flawless connection, tracing the route to Finnish servers or pinging them gives good results. Even when connected with CyberGhost VPN to a Finnish server I get good speeds up and down, only ping is a bit high when using VPN.

    I do not believe this is a connection issue.

    After further investigation I need to retract the Abode Flash Global Settings information

The Local Settings Manager can be accessed in the Control Panel on Windows and in System Preferences on Mac. Users of other operating systems and earlier versions of Flash Player can continue to use the Online Settings Manager described here.

    To access the local Flash Player Settings Manager that is native to your operating system:
    •Windows: click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Flash Player
    •Macintosh: System Preferences (under Other) click Flash Player
    •Linux Gnome: System > Preferences > Adobe Flash Player
    •Linux KDE: System Settings > Adobe Flash Player
    That's what old memory gets you. It used to be the other way around. Adobe should have that information on every Global settings page in big red print! It won't hurt to use it, but it might not do any good either if your local settings are different.

    Not sure what difference it makes ?
    Any user can access the global settings from the online player which will open the local flash player settings,
    It good to review both for discrepancies
