problems with flash


Im a linux noob, just migrated from windows, i have some knowledge of linux, however. Right now, im running red hat 8, but ive had this flash problem on slackware 9, red hat 9, SuSe, and Red Hat 8. In windows, everything worked just fine, all the audio and video synched up without any problem, but in linux, the audio goes off track very quickly, making everything very unsynched, and oftentimes the animation is very choppy. Im using the Macromedia flash plugin for Mozilla on all the distros ive tried this on. If it helps, here is my system info.

AthlonXP 2100
1.5G DDR 2700 RAM
Red Hat 8
Radeon 9700 Pro Video Card (detected and installed just fine)
aDSL connection

thanks for listening

First off.... Welcome to LinuxQuestions.org

Glad to have you !


OK down to business:
Did you install the flash player yourself? Can you give me an example of a site you're having problems with the sound and stuff getting all out of wack? What version of the flash player? What version of Mozilla?

Have you tried Mozilla Firebird?

Let me know.

Peace,
Whitehat

That is a known issue with the current version of the flash plugin for Linux.

If you just want to play a movie (eg. you don't need to interact with it), RealPlayer for Linux can also play flash movies.

Did you try the Flash RPM instead, I didn't have good video and sound until I installed it using the RPM, it even found all the mozilla based browsers and installed to the plugins directory.

Go here and download the file Flash RPM , then you just issue the following command as root from the directory where you downloaded the file to:
Code:
rpm -ihv flash*

ive tried both the tarball and the rpm, and the rpm cleaned up playing a bit, but the audio still runs ahead after a few seconds. the site im mainly trying to view is homestarrunner.com, which most of my linux running friends have zero problem with, and cant imagine why i always have this problem regardless of my distro.
