    Adobe flash player lags on all browsers.


    Hi, I'm sure this problem has occurred to other people, but I did some research and still couldn't find a working solution. I am currently on Linux Mint 13 MATE and notice that my Youtube and other websites that require flash lags and the sound goes out of sync when I play videos on full screen. My graphics card is: ATI Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 if that helps. I'm very new to Linux so solving things myself is quite a problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Right now I'm using Chrome, and videos are smooth. Last night I installed Chromium, it was also working fine until I rebooted and videos became choppy. I'm expecting the same to happen on Chrome. So please if you have any suggestions feel free to say it.
    *I installed the flashplugin from synaptic

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

    Get an nVidia card and install their proprietary Linux driver? FWIW, which driver are you using for the Radeon card - built-in or proprietary?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    I've actually somehow solved the problem. I think the solution was to install the latest driver from AMD. Like I mentioned before, I'm a noob when it comes to Linux, so I thought the built-in was the latest (lol). But then when I downloaded the driver, I came to some issues installing it, but now i got it figured out

    I think I had this problem at one point on Mint. Something about disabling hardware acceleration or something like that.
