Hulu on Single G5--out of luck?

Hello,

I've recently started using Hulu (I know, late to the party...), and discovered that it does not run smoothly on my single G5. It's running 10.5 on a 1.6GHz G5 with 3GB of RAM, the stock hard drive, and Radeon 9600 graphics. The video lags horribly. The issue is not my internet connection; it works fine on my Thinkpad. Am I out of luck, or is there something I should try to patch things up? Using Firefox 3.6, for what it's worth.

Flash on PPC is all around terrible and a 1.6ghz is extra slow. The best you can try is change the flash cache to 10MB or higher. It does help.

Using G5 optimized camino would be better for that machine as well.
