Hi,

I have an old laptop which I only use to watch youtube videos while I am waiting for some process to finish on my main computer.

its an Intel Pentium M 1.8 Ghz, 1.5GB RAM Toshiba laptop. I have installed Ubuntu Mate 16.04 on it.

 

Now the problem is that Youtube on any Linux distribution is very slow, just jittery.. laggy.. the processor fan starts running at full speed when any online video is on..  Ive tried Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Linux Mint, Ubuntu Mate.

 

The laptop should be able to handle Youtube videos with ease, its not that old/weak.  Also Youtube runs smoothly and without problems on a Windows XP installation but I had to finally give up on Windows and come back to Linux because of Wifi problems, as outlined in my thread here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/619534/i-have-to-constantly-keep-repairing-my-wifi-to-stay-online/

 

Below is a hardwareinfo generated report as well if you need to look over it:

That's a low powered CPU by today's standards. PassMark rates it almost identically to the CPU I have in my old laptop, and it also struggles to play youtube.
 
Your CPU: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Pentium+M+1.80GHz
My CPU: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+Sempron+3000%2B

I noticed when I first started using Linux that it uses more system resources to play videos compared to Windows, which shouldn't be surprising since computer manufacturers design their hardware to run Windows, whereas Linux developers develop Linux software to run on hardware that's designed to run Windows.

This isn't important when your computer has power to spare, but you do notice the difference using a low-powered CPU.

I suggest trying antiX 16 which comes with:

smtube 16.3.0 - play youtube videos without a using a browser
streamlight-antix - stream videos with very low RAM usage.

http://antix.mepis.org/index.php?title=Main_Page


It also uses less system resources than any of the distros you have mentioned.

I would stay clear of all the *buntu 16.04 releases as they are designed with newer hardware in mind.

Try slimjet browser and if you decide to install it untick the force adobe flash player for youtube you will find that in the settings.

I would also give Puppy tahrpup 6.05. a look at also.

hi,

 

Thanks for the reply. I did try out antix. It was not for me, did not like it. However thank you for recommending smtube. I did not know it existed. Youtube is definitely faster using it. Even in Ubuntu Mate.

 

Try slimjet browser and if you decide to install it untick the force adobe flash player for youtube you will find that in the settings.

I do not like the look and feel of puppy linux, Ive tried it a couple times but could never get myself to use it long term. Thanks for suggesting slimjet, I'll definitely give it a try.

Al1000 is right on IMO, and you need more RAM if possible.  I looked at the official Docs on that pc, but could not tell how much RAM it will take?

 

I don't know much about nVidia, but it might help to install the driver for that also.  Right now you are using "nouveau"  Installing a new Driver could cause problems also, so make sure you get the right directions from someone who knows this well.  They should be available through the Ubuntu Repositories, the NVIDIA driver might be more efficient and therefore work better.

 

ubuntu-restricted-extras might help also.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu-restricted-extras

 

If it were me, I would see if I could figure out a few things before I re-installed - if that is what you intend to do - this way you will know what to do for the next distro you install.  Mate is supposed to be pretty light on resources but there are lighter.  If you do reinstall, go with an older distro, 14.04 or Mint 17.1 or 17.3

I would definitely go with LM 17.x series Mate or Xfce as both will use less resources with the graphics adapter you have.

Extra memory is always going to be a plus.

 

You may not find a proprietary driver that will work for that card.

Nvidia driver 304.131 is the oldest that I believe Linux goes back to.

I did try out antix. It was not for me, did not like it.


If you don't like Puppy, I understand why you don't like antiX. At least you tried it, and now know what it's like. :)

However thank you for recommending smtube. I did not know it existed.


You're welcome. I like Streamlight too. Unlike some other applications of this type, these ones actually work!

Have you optimized these distro's after install - removed processes that cause CPU issues, tweaked your swap settings, etc?

 

I didn't want to give you a lot of ideas you may have already made use of.

Some good tips here IMO.

I usually disable some services that can cause high cpu - like tracker indexing and samba if it (samba) isn't necessary.

 

He's got a small amount of ram so tweaking the swap would be helpful that's in those guides you posted.

 

That series of guides are really helpful.  I don't use Ubuntu/Mint anymore but I used those guides to tweak it when I did.

 

Killing tracker can really free up resources too - that thing is the beast.  I always kill that no matter what distro I'm running.  This, below is a great guide to doing that though its written for Fedora just replace the yum with sudo apt-get and so on.

I'd check what applications are in the startup menu too as things may be running that aren't necessary.
