But this sounds like other posts I've seen on this.
Try DISABLE FLASH HARDWARE ACCELERATION and tell us if it's worse or better.
PS. No. Netbooks are usually not up to full screen playback.
I recently purchased a Gateway LT4010. I'm experiencing a phenomenon known as "tearing" while streaming videos.
The graphics card is the Intel GMA 3600, 4 core 400 Mhz
The Acer version of this netbook comes with an Intel GMA 3650, 4 core 640 Mhz.
The systems are the same price. I am wondering if I exchange the Gateway for the Acer, would the higher frequency resolve the tearing?
