we have 2 identical machines in terms of hardware, and OS Win XP - running 2 identical files (swf embedded in C#)
on the one machine the flash player (plug-in i'm never sure of the terminology) in 10.0 ...x , the other is 10.1.82.76 - the newer one, runs incredibly slowly - however on a Windows 7 machine it's fine.

any ideas - other info required?

Downgrade :- Download uninstaller from

and uninstall the current one then download old version and install.

Suggestion

If you are talking about watching H.264 video using flash then quite possiblly the Flash on Windows 7 is utilizing hardware support built into the box (probably the GPU of the video card).

On the XP system it isnt' using this hardware support.

hi drbrunton - thanks for that.

this is the setup.

we're runnign the content on different machines, noted something not right after FP update on XP Box. so
reverted to old FP on XP box - runs fine, update to latest FP on XP box - doesn't - it's not - also its not video, its normal flash stuff with tweens etc. for a fruit machine type effect.

Hmm.

Try Gnash http://getgnash.org/packages/releases/windows/

More data about Gnash http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnash

It is a standalone app (I understand) so curious to see if this will exhibit the slowness or not.  I'm betting it won't.  

I'll also presume you are also doing this through IE.  If you can, install Firefox and Flash for that and see if the problem still occurs.
