Default Poor Flash performance with nVidia GT 8600

Hi everybody,

this is my first post in this forum.
I'm experiencing really really poor Flash video performance with my nVidia graphic card. When I see a video on some site on internet, the video always has a jerky playback, the only site with an acceptable quality is YouTube. I think it's a driver problem, could please suggest me any "tricky" configuration?

Here's some information:

Graphic card: nVidia GT 8600
Driver version: nVidia 285.05.09 (latest at the moment I'm writing)
OS: Ubuntu 11.10
Hardware: Intel Pentium D 3.00 GHZ (dual core), 32 bit, 3 GB RAM
X Server: xorg version 11.0 with GNOME and Compiz (Ubuntu Unity Desktop)
Options in my xorg.conf file:
Option "PixmapCacheSize" "300000"
Option "OnDemandVBlankInterrupts" "True"

Script that runs on init:
nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 -a GlyphCache=1

Browser: Chromium 14.0.835.202
Flash player plugin version: Shockwave Flash 11.0r1 or 10.3r183

I also read in some forum that is useful to put these lines in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg :
OverrideGPUValidation = 1

but I don't have any mms.cfg! So I tried to create it and to put the lines above in it (I also tried one line at time), but nothing changed.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks in advice
