Flash - jerky playback and CPU pegged at 100%
This happens in Firefox, Opera and IE - all updated to latest version.
Latest version of Flash plugin installed. Updated my video drivers. Playing
any flash video yields spasmodic, jerky playback, with frames dropping,
flicker and my CPU maxxed out at 100%. This system runs on a 1 GHz CPU and 2
GB RAM, not the best Vista setup, but other than this Flash problem the
system runs Vista fine.

Hi Tattoo Vampire-
You upgraded from Adobe Flash Player 9 to 10? There have been some
issues.
Go to the Adobe Flash Player forum: Adobe.com/support/forums.
Scroll down to the Flash Player forum. Your FP10 may not have installed
correctly. Check out the thread "Flash Player and Windows Vista Fix" and
the reply by "techangel". It might help you. Check out some other
threads while you're there. There have been IE7 Hang issues and
FP10/Yahoo issues (Yahoo is working on a fix).

I didn't see this thread anywhere, notr anything posted by "techangel".
Anyhow, it was a fresh install of 10, and I also used their uninstall tool
(and not add/remove programs) to remove it and then reinstall.

This isn't a Vista-specific problem as it turns out - I installed Ubuntu on
this machine and am experiencing the same problem. So, now to figure out
what's going wrong.

Re: Flash - jerky playback and CPU pegged at 100%

Hi Tattoo Vampire-
I was just over at the Adobe FP forum. The thread is on page 2 now. The
name is "thetechangel.com" not "techangel". Sorry 'bout that. The thread
was started 2/16/07, so scroll way down to the bottom for his reply of
10/23/08. Also, he has started a new thread "Adobe Flash Player 10 Fix
For Vista & XP" dated 10/31/08, also on page 2.
Some of these issues seem to affect both FP10 upgrades and fresh FP10
installations, regardless of your browser. I read an old thread from
last year (a new reply brought it up) in this Techarena forum saying
that you had to have Java installed to download FP (first I had heard of
that).
I can't help ya on Ubuntu as I don't know enough about it to even fake
an answer! Cool name, though...
Good luck.
