    Flash player - quality setting

    davexnet Level 1
      For all those using older PC's, the loading of web pages full of Flash content forces the cpu
      utilization up to 100% and the browser grinds to a halt.
      Right clicking on the individual flash objects allows one to set the "quality" to low, thus
      causing some cpu utilization "relief" and allowing the PC to function.

      Is there a setting on the player software to set quality=low by default?
      If not, why not? I think the idea of giving the user some control over the Flash player needs
      to be looked at.
      It causes such frustration, that many just use Flashblock with Firefox. No objects will
      load at all, except for those the user specifically clicks on. Instant relief.
      Just think of all those advertisements not being seen...
