youtube sluggish on samsung netbook n100

Asked by Neil on 2012-07-08

I have a Samsung Netbook N100 and I use firefox as my default browser. Everytime I run youtube, the videos are laggy and sluggish especially on fullscreen. I tried to use Google Chrome and I/ve got the same issue. I've also tried to take off the cache limit on ubuntu based on the solutions provided at this link Youtube was working fine before.

Any possible resolutions would be very much appreciated.

sudo apt-get --purge remove flashplugin-installer

Then enable the partner repo and install adobe-flashplugin

You can also try installing minitube and use that. Also try the Unity2D session from the login screen.

Can you help with this problem?
