Laggy Flash on Linux – Chrome

Sometimes the Linux Flash player starts lagging in the browser. This doesn't seem to fix it when trying to load Flash through another browser or restarting all browser windows completely.

A quick workaround in Chrome is playing with the Flash libraries. There is a version shipped together with Chrome and you can also use the library from the Flash player itself. If you have configured both .so files and navigate to:

  1. chrome://plugins

Then you will find in the plugins list the Flash options similarly to the following screen:


By switching between the different libraries the lagging issue should get fixed. If not, update your library versions and use that approach when the browser rendering gets buggy again.
