Is YouTube supposed to lag in Mandriva 2010?

I just got my first version of Linux yesterday, Mandriva obviously. When I go on YouTube and play videos, it takes me about 20 clicks to pause video or play them again. Does this happen to anyone else?

Not here. Do you use the 64-bit edition?

And "Mandriva" is not something obvious here. The forum may be labelled "Mandrivausers", but about half of the members are not using Mandriva in the first place.

I'm using Mandriva 2010 x86_64 with the 64 bit flash plugin, and I experience no problems with youtube.

 

As scarecrow says, please tell us which version you have, and whether 32 bit or 64 bit and a bit more about the problem.

I'm pretty sure its a 32 bit, my cousin loaded it on last night cause my Vista broke, so I'm new to Linux.

There could be a number of reasons for this, but try this first. Open Firefox, and then in the url bar type:

 

about:config

 

then filter for ipv6. There will be a key:

 

network.dns.disableIPv6 = false

 

double-click this so that it is set to "true". Then try youtube again and let us know. If not, then maybe system-wide ipv6 needs to be disabled. But one change at a time :)
