http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi there, I recently bought this Acer Aspire One 722 and I have used it for around two weeks under Windows 7 Ultimate X64. Everything runs smooth on it except for when playing 1080p videos in .MKV format or Youtube. So now, I finally got to dual boot both Win7 and Ubuntu 11.10. I love Linux! but some things I cannot get over is flash and high resolution video. In Windows I use the CCCP codec pack and it plays 720p videos smoothly with Windows Media Player or Media Player Classic. With Linux I downloaded the codecs and play 720p videos using MPlayer and it plays quite rough, also youtube vid (Hardware)
