Why do you even need flash plugins? If the reason is the internet, just download the Google chrome deb and install it. I have not needed flash since I switched from Firefox to chrome.

Google chrome complains more about outdated plugins than any other browser

Not for me. Haven't had a problem with chrome yet. I was actually in a similar situation as the OP some time ago. Chrome fixed my problems.

Then what is the solution to the OP problem?

What does that have to do with the OPs hardware? The OP clearly stated in posts #1, #4, and #10, and implied in post #11, that flash works in Windows on this hardware. Thus your continued implications to the contrary seem to be rather pointless. If it works in Windows, then it should work in Linux, the only feasible problem being either some configuration issue or, as you noted early, the crappy Linux flash plugin.

Hmmm, it doesn't sound choppy to me, unless my definition of "fine" is outdated:

@lej do you have a Dell optiplex?

Also what is meant by this statement?

not fixed but acceptable solution found

thanx to all for all your input and advice...problem is not fixed and I have chocked problem up to either non-adequate hardware or flash player software problems...

I have taked advice and am using "download helper" and viewing using VLC player...
I do plan to upgrade RAM in near future hoping to fully solve this problem...

I will post again at that date to verify if this fixes the issue...

Again, thanx for everyone's help, advice, time and research in this matter!

This is a great site and I look forward to learning as I go...hoping to get to the point when I can be of assistance to other linux users...
