Flash 11.4 Problems on Intel Pentium 4

Sep 12, 2012 8:36 AM



All my youtube videos are playing slow, just like it were in slow-mo. Sound is ok, but videos are being  played really bad...

I got this PC a few weeks ago, so I reinstalled Windows XP SP3 on it, put some RAM, here is my configuration:


Intel Pentium 4 @ 1.70 GHz


Gigabyte Geforce FX 5200 with 128 MB VideoRAM


My question is, do I have these problems because this CPU is not powerful enough to run Flash Player 11.4? According to specs it needs at least 2.33 Ghz.

Also in task manager I have observed that my CPU usage is 100% almost all the time while playing videos on youtube.


If this config cannot run this version of Flash Player, which one is the latest version I could run on this PC. Should I stick with Adobe Flash Player or maybe should I run some previous version of 11.x which has some lower requirements?


Please help, this player is driving me crazy the way it works right now... I am unable to surf the Internet like this... it's useless...


Thanks, I hope someone can answer my questions.

    First, if is working for you then I would definitely recommend sticking with this release.


    We'd like to know more info though so we can try and resolve this problem.  It's been reported before (see bug #3316328).  This page will detail out the information we'll need to investigate further (along with instructions on how to report it to us)


    Troubleshoot, report Flash Player video playback issues
