Fullscreen video lag

Jun 12, 2010 10:15 PM

System specs:


3300+ AMD Athlon 64 processor (2.4GHz)

1.5GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM memory

GeForce 7600GS 512MB video card

Windows XP Home 32-bit

Internet Explorer 8 32-bit


The problem I am having is simple:  Fullscreen videos lag, bad.  It looks like I'm getting half the FPS from windowed mode.  Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

    Only thing I can suggest is to toggle 'Enable hardware acceleration' (right-click on any online Flash object, then select Settings...).

    Sorry, no more suggestions.


    But, if this was happening on my machine, I would

    • check if newer device drivers for the graphics card are available;
    • check various Global Settings, e.g. local storage settings;
    • clear the Flash Player cache;

    Same problem here too. Im trying to watch fullscreen video from different web sites (youtube,,, tv3play etc) but they all lag.

    The computer is a Samsung N150 straight out of the box. All I've done is updated all drivers and software (win7). I've tried the tricks mentioned above without luck. Tried it in IE, chrome and firefox with same result. I've tried it in different screen resolutions. Funny thing is that if I set the screen to 800x600 the small (un-fullscreened) screen is almost filling the display and plays well, but when I put it on fullscreen, which practically only makes it a few percent larger, it starts lagging.

    I've got an old hp tablet pc with less ram and less process power, but no lagging.

    What is going on Adobe?

    Fix this!
