it's only videos online?
go to youtube, find a video longer than 2 minutes, and see if it's choppy.
try it again, this time, hit pause and let it load all the way then play again and see if it's still choppy.

Yea still does, more noticeable on netflix though. Could this somehow be codec related? I have the latest Flash installed.

Ahhh...its using onboard video which is normally not very capable. I'm guessing installing an aftermarket video card is not an option. IF you know how to get to the bios menu...see if theres an option to allow more memory for the video.

I've been using Chrome since the beta and IMO it surpasses both FF & IE in performance.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
