Flash content problems

I seem to be having a problem with streaming video. Video is jumpy with any kind of flash content in fullscreen, (animation/cartoons) not so bad. Movies I have on disk or from dvd in mplayer run just fine.

pIII 1.0 ghz 256 ram and a GEforce mx440 64megs ram (Ubuntu 9.4 jaunty)

Unfortunately I was reduced to this the other day....(extra fan shorted out mobo, ugh) But I would think it would be enough. Any other info that might be needed, just let me know, thanx. (nvidia drivers are installed)

I would say that the Distribution you are running is a tad heavy for such a CPU. I have some older machines here and would never dream of installing Ubuntu on them.

If you want to keep Ubuntu, try some other WM like fluxbox or something and make sure you turn off services that are not needed. I would also suggest a ram upgrade as 256 nowadays is not much.
