Hi, I'm having problems with flash lagging. Every second it takes a little brake..

I'm using Chrome on Windows 7. I've deactivated Adobe's flash player. Before I did that, flash was slowing down to a full stop. Deactivating Chrome's flash player and activating Adobe's is not helping.

My Chrome and Windows are both updated. The problems started about a month ago. Before that, I had both flash players activated without any problems.

Thanks for any help on this.

Try the following:

Right-click inside a running Flash video.

Select Settings...

Select the folder in the middle tab.

Move the slider to the right until it says "Unlimited".

Try the videos again.

That doesn't work. When I right click, the menu pops up, but then it freezes. The rest of the web page is still working, but nothing inside the popup is working... The flash is still moving in the background.

I'm sorry to say that the same problems are back. Flash started lagging, so I took another look here http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html and realized that I had only changed disk usage for websites I hadn't visited yet, so I deleted all sites on website storage settings (second to last tab) and set the marker on unlimited. This worked for a while, but not anymore. I'm trying to use a website called mockflow, which uses flash to draw websites mockups, and everything is lagging like ****. Now the flash on Facebook etc is also lagging like before... Please help!

Test a different browser?

Also, Flash is embedded into Chrome. I see that it can be disabled, but I don't see how that would help when the component is part of the app. Almost all of these odd problems when using Chrome, are actual Chrome issues.

Disabling all other plugins seems to fix the problem. I'll try to reactivate them one by one until it happens again. Problem is it usually takes a while before the lagging begins. I'll keep you posted.

I've now used Chrome with all other plugins deactivated for some time, and the lagging is back. Flash is not lagging in Firefox. I'll try that repair link now.

I did not realize that extensions and plugins are different things until now. Flash is a plugin, not an extension, as you say, so I've been disabling all other plugins, not extensions. I've deactivated all extensions now, and I'll use it that way for a while.

And I don't think it's considered a "plugin" to Chrome. It is actually part of the browser.

I don't know, but it's found here.. chrome://plugins
Anyways, disabling all plugins, except flash, and all extensions didn't have any effect. The lagg is still there.
