Videos on Ubuntu & Slimjet

Slimjet 9.0.7.0
Ubuntu 14.04
plugins shows: Adobe Flash Player - Version: 21.0.0.197

When I try to look at videos on various sites, I get "couldn't load plugin."
Youtube videos play ok.
Any idea what I might be missing here. Thanks for your help.

Re: Slimjet and Ubuntu - performance

Today I installed the same Ubuntu and same Slimjet on another older computer here. SJ is running as fast as blazes on it.
So, it is not an issue of non-compatibility.
One of these days I may just re-install Ubuntu and SJ on this pc.
When I do, I'll update this thread.
Thanks again for your help!

Re: Slimjet and Ubuntu - performance

If I turn off Hardware acceleration, the pages start cascading down as they are appearing on the screen.... like ripples of water moving fast. With Hardware acceleration on, they present in a normal way, but slow in going from one page to the next. It's like something needs a boost to pick up the pa...

Slimjet and Ubuntu - performance

On my pc, Slimjet running on Ubuntu is slower than Firefox. One example happens when I log on to a newspaper. It is slower than FF loading in the various pages. Is there something I can tweek to improve the performance, or is this an issue between Chromium and this type of OS? I've tried a few thing...
