I've been watching videos online, and every now and then the video will start to get choppy. It will play a bit, freeze for less than a second, then resume, only to have it happen again. I've Googled this, and it says to disable hardware acceleration through Firefox and the flash player. I disabled it on Firefox, and there isn't much improvement. I tried to disable it through the flash player according to Adobe's instructions. I right-click on the Flash Player logo, and I see the "Settings" option they refer to, but it is greyed out and I can't click on it. I went to Youtube, and the "Settings" option is avalible there, so I clicked on it. It opened the settings box in the middle (like it is suppossed to) but it is completely locked up and the flash player became completely unresponsive.
Is there a global config file that I could manually edit to disable hardware acceleration?
I thought I'd post what I did, in case anyone has the same issue. I never got Firefox to work, but for whatever reason Google Chrome has no problems at all. So that's what I use when I need to watch a video.
