Re: [PLUG] Problem with streaming of youtube videos on linux pc

On Ubuntu (64bit) the 32bit flash plugin was horrible. Switched to the 
64bit plugin and all is well. Make sure you clean up any dependencies 
left over from the 32bit version.

It will rarely continue playing on it's own at this point. I can drag the slider a few seconds to the right and it will continue for another 30 seconds. This happens in both firefox AND konqueror.
