Oh, I can see a few frames, just not a "motion picture"  I get sound,
but even when the picture "moves", they aren't synchronized.

I was just hoping that she could just view and manage them on the Eee.
 She doesn't really use another computer at home.  I really don't care
about repeated viewing on the Eee.  She can plug the Flip into the TV
or can view them on the media appliance that I just got.

So you think its the Atom as well.

Meanwhile, there is a full powered laptop available to her running
Kubuntu 9.10.  Is there something more video oriented than digiKam if
she uses that?  I did a search on the repos and didn't see much.
