    I'm getting horrible flash performance in full screen. using latest version of Flash from adobe.com and in 1080p resolution

    This is a recent thing, about a month or so.

    i've tried unchecking hardware acceleration, still horrible. Jumping video and lag. Is there anything I can do?? I've used the mac mini to watch tv online, streaming nhl games, soccer, etc. And now it's unwatchable!! Help!

    Thanks

    Run Disk Utility
    Run Cron Scripts
    Delete user cache files not the cache folder
    Delete the Flash Cache files from your preference folder.

    Restart. See if that works.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the tips I didn't think of that. I will test in a few days when I'm home from my business trip.

    Have newly acquired similar poor performance with full screen hulu on the family's mac mini (9400 video).

    Only fix I have figured out that works for me was installing the older FireFox 3.6.xx (right along with FF4) and with the older FF, full screen flash works as it did in the past, i.e. Great.

    Try it and let me know if this workd for you.

    Still slight pauses every 5-10 seconds. This is really annoying.

    Flash in general sucks on macs... both intel and ppc. HTML5 is where its at!
