    Video lag


    When I go to YouTube the video streams flawlessly, but any other website I get perfect sound but one image a second. Those websites work fine on my ps3, so it can't just be the video or the website. I assume something must be wrong with flash. Help would be greatly appreciated!

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

    There can be a lot of causes of this from the codec the site is using, to the frame rate they are using, to other things causing a load on your system, etc. What hardware (make/model/CPU/Video) and Linux distribution+version (such as Ubuntu 10.04) are you using? I am using Linux (several different versions) on my desktop and laptop and I do not have this problem, although there are some sites that use codecs or video streaming software that my Chrome and Firefox plugins don't handle, so I get no access to the video at all (sound or otherwise).

    I am using a Dell Inspiron 1721, with a AMD Turion 64 X2 processor, I am running Ubuntu 10.11, and I also have 32bit Vista on the same machine. Sorry but I'm not sure how to check my video or sound card on Ubuntu yet, I only know that process in Windows but my Vista barely operates on the 2gb RAM so I always avoid booting it if I can.

    10.11? Are you sure you don't mean 11.10?

    Anyway, run the commands "lspci" and "lsmod" and post the output(s) here.

    Well, it is an AMD/ATI Radeon x1200 series. You might want to get the latest proprietary driver from the AMD/ATI web site. I understand that there is a new/improved one out.

    Unity 3d not working is enough of a concern to tell you that the drivers are wrong, outdated or unsupported in Ubuntu. I would definitely install the latest drivers, you should also install flash-aid plugin for firefox and update to the newest flash release.

    Edit: This link has some info on the non propriatary drivers, according to them 3d support is great with the x1200 series.
