The first thing to try with any Flash related issue, is disabling the hardware acceleration. You'd think after this long Adobe could have fixed that, but apparently not.
Hello fine people! My story is thus:
I ran one too many programs at once it seems; causing the video I had playing to lag. My machine is... a classic, so it's not unusual for it to be overworked. However, even though I've closed all the extra processes and have things running smooth and normally, EVERY video I try to watch online still has audio lag. That is to say, the sound is skipping and sounds a little like the people are underwater. Updating my flash player did not fix this.
This happened to me once before, and I jumped to system restore. That did the trick, however I'd like to know what causes this and if there are other solutions.
I know everybody's time is valuable, so thank you so much for reading.
