Flash plugin problems with Fedora 10

Hi, I have Fedora 10 running on a Dell Latitude
C810 Pentium III 1133MHz.

Playback with flash is jerky (video & audio)
and gets out of sync.

CPU usage increases to 99% when this is happening
(e.g. on you tube).

Anyone seen/fixed this?

Firefox 3.0.7

I have seen a page which seems to report this as
a bug to adobe

Also tried disabling hardware acceleration, didn't

Flash poor running

I've 512 Mb RAM, can't do much about the processor on a laptop.
I've tested on a P4 and identical setup otherwise and it's OK....
Can I encourage it to use more swap, if RAM is a problem?

512 is fine , it is on the low side so things like video will be a bit slow .
However this ( p3 - 1133MHz ) cpu will really slow things down

and i take it there is NO 'pseudo ' 3d chipset built into the laptop ( no graphics card - no gpu) so that EVERYTHING must be ran through the cpu


flash, plugin
