17 For me it was just the other way around. HTML5 mode played much (very
18 much!) more smooth than flash player. I opted in early by that time for
19 switching YT to HTML5 player. This was for Chrome, of course, because
20 by that time Firefox wasn't really compatible.
22 You probably really should check your graphics stack. If you have an at
23 least somewhat decent machine (something which was built during the
24 last 5 years), you should have absolutely no problems playing videos in
25 the HTML5 player. Even my aging machine in the office (which didn't
26 play smooth videos in the flash player) runs full HD streaming videos
27 smoothly in the HTML5 player - no stuttering, no blocking, no
28 framedrops. This was different with the flash player which looked like
29 it dropped every second frame in fullscreen mode - but at least it did
30 not stutter due to that "optimization".
32 Maybe give some information about your graphics stack and
33 configuration...
