Slow online vid playback in ubuntu

Using ubuntu on my home laptop (IBM R51) but the vid playback from online places like youtube is horrific.

Im using firefox with shockwave.

Any one got any advice for an unbuntu n00b. - I know its not the internet connection or the laptop, under Windows XP all playback was perfect. I suspect it must be a software issue.

cheers

Re: Slow online vid playback in ubuntu

format c: and install a real OS?

Seriously though, it really does sound like a video hardware acceleration issue. Not sure where to start with that, but I'll ask around.

You can use Synaptics and search for nvidia or ati, or

There is a nice little app that does an autodetection and directs you to the latest relevant link - I will check my ubuntu box when I get home and post back as I can't remember wtf it's called.
