    Hardware requirements for full screen flash videos


    hi,

    im using a hd5450 with a amd x2 3800+ processor on ubuntu 12.04.2.
    system load goes almost up to 2 while only watching a video, nothing much else going on.

    in the catalyst control center it says; 2d driver version: 8.96.4


    is this maybe the free not so performant driver? a module called fglrx is loaded.
    or is this system just to outdated for flash playback?

    Code:

    That is amd proprietary and is not

    I don't run Ubuntu 12 but I do run the radeon free driver on this box and you tube plays excellent on a single core Pentium 4 processor

    Like I said. I don't run Ubuntu 12 (look up at what I run). So I can't swear if this will work.

    You can thank AMD for older amd legacy chips not working well with newer linux kernels via fglrx legacy drivers.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Adobe's dropping Linux flash support was a temporary thing. You should be able to get current flash plugins from their web site. I update my Red Hat system on a regular basis. My current version on my home system is 11.2.202.275.

    FWIW, I just looked and Adobe has just released a new update, 11.2.202.280...
