    Firefix with wine on FC5


    Hello,

    I had way too much trouble with installing plugins for firefox on FC5. Finally I decided to download firefox for windows and started using that with wine. Everything(including the plugins) works fine except for videos. Any video from youtube, google or spiked humor has regular jerk or delay in it. Its not smooth. I know its not because of the network because when I play the same on windows it works fine. I think there probably is some winecfg setting which I dont know about.

    Any help in this regard will be appreciated

    My guess would be that Wine is a memory hog, coupled with running Linux it's no wonder it lags and jerks.
    I would bet a vowel and 2 consonants that if you tried a little harder, you could install the correct firefox plugins and not have to deal with that anymore.
    Which plugins are you having problems with? mplayerplug-in?
