firefox becomes slow when playing flv files.
I am using fedora core 10 and firefox 3.0.5 from the fedora repos. When i am viewing websites that include flash videos (flv files) like you tube or similar my computher becomes extremely slow. The problem is bigger when a website contains more than one flash. The npviewer.bin consumes 88% of the cpu. I downloaded the flash player from adobe but this didnt make any difference. Is that a known problem or its just something wrong with my configuration?
Many thanks in advance,
I have similar problem with mplayer + firefox flv
Similar issue for me on Ubuntu Hardy. When I play .flv files in mplayer at the same time as watching flv in firefox the whole system slows down. After that, flvs will ONLY play slowly in mplayer until X is restarted!
