How can I stop video playback stuttering?

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, Kalin
