Slow playback

Playing a Flash file can be very processor intensive, depending on what kind of flash file it is and how much movement the flash file contains.

Playback of a flash file can also slow down the graphics card since every flash frame needs to be transferred to the graphic card memory to be displayed.

Any stuttering playback during flash playback is most likely a result of the flash playback not being able to keep up with the set frame rate.

  • Upgrade to the latest display drivers from your graphic card manufacturer, this may help somewhat since older drivers may not have the same performance as never ones.
  • Select to resize the flash using the Scaling option in the Flash Object to save rendering time.
