I'm still very frustrated at the performance of Flash video on the Mini...
With no non-essential processes running, the standard resolution videos on hulu.com are choppy. The HD videos are awful. Yet, they play fine on my three other computers...including an OLD Pentium III 500MHz with 128MB of RAM and 8MB video card (don't ask why I still have that thing!!).
So, I'm bumping this thread to see if anyone might have any more suggestions on how to tweak flash settings, or perhaps even an alternative to Adobe's Flash decoder to try...or any insight into HOW Flash video is decoded (alternative codecs, etc).
I am certain that this CPU and GPU are CAPABLE of playing the video because as I said in an earlier post, I can play full resolution 720p HD videos in .MOV format with absolute perfection.
My guess is that somewhere there is a setting or a decoder that is not playing well with the Atom CPU.
