If this is just about flash, then a chroot is a waste of time and resources. chroot is useful, if you need an entire secondary independent environment.

there is the possibility to run 32bit flash in a 64bit browser, but the performance will about be the same.

May I ask how laggy it is, and under what circumstances: if it while playing fullscreen, then that is IMO normal - flash has never been optimized for linux.

again - no need to install a chroot for wine. just be sure you enable win32 and disable win64 useflags on wine. portage will take care of the rest (i.e install the emul-linux packages).

about the videos. could you post some links? I would like to try it myself.

be nice.

don't compare it against windows, flash dev don't give a flying crap about linux, that is why you can find new versions of flash for windows but not for linux as the devs decided to dump linux flash support (yet again)
are you using the proprietary driver or the foss one?
