I have got this addon working to a degree (on XBMCbuntu 12.3 Acer Revo 3600, using the 1.07 fork, with the script

I am trying to use it to stream live NRL games through http://www.new.livestream.com/nrl which I added as a website and it opens Chromium up on that page (full address bar etc, mouse works ok)
Unfortunately video playback is just super choppy. I know I have enough bandwidth as I can stream them fine on my Windows Laptop. I tested a HD youtube video which played fine so I can only assume flash is working.
I found this thread http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?pid...3pid994231
I am wondering if maybe something like this could be implemented? And if it would actually help?
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I am all ears.
I know that this isn't really an issue with the script, more Chromium and how it is handling the videos but thought I would ask here and hope for the best!
Thanks in advance.
Flash on Linux is garbage, more so than other platforms. In my experience hardware acceleration doesn't work too well and it doesn't play all steams (my kitchen rules). Try using a compositing manager which might help(I use compton) although I suspect vdpau isn't being used and the CPU isn't enough to decode the video - have a look in the program 'top' while playing a video to check CPU usage.
There is also pipelight which uses the windows version of flash via wine which allows me to play more streams in Linux, but not sure how much that would help.
