I was wondering if the linux implementation of flash/shockwave is simply inadequate. I know it's not my machine as when I was running windoze, the same shockwave movies I am playing now (slowly) played fine. I have tried two different browsers (though both Mozilla based) and the results are the same. I simply installed the plugin from Macromedia's page, perhaps I did something wrong? I am a newb after all...
Any ideas? Thanks..
