Why do all my videos stutter?

Why do some of my videos require flash plugin and some do not?

Thanks so much to anyone who helps me.

Hi @CoolNerdTV,

You can try to create a xorg configuration file as per this section of this page - Link
And also add the video tearing option to it as per this section - Link

So you should end up with something like:

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "TearFree"    "true"

Restart and see if it’s any better.

Kind regards,

Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll try it out today.
