Linux and streaming video- I'm on Peppermint One OS
, and I can't get full screen streaming video without it getting all stutter-y and stupid. Help me out with a workaround or recommend another Linux OS.

It doesn't have this problem if it's not full screen.
The problem is true across different websites (Hulu, Youtube, etc.), different browsers (Chrome, Firefox) and even with the pre-installed single-site browser Prism for the same sites. I've tried asking on the Peppermint OS forums, without much success.
DVDs or video on the harddrive plays just fine without stutter as well.
It's also not a connection problem, since my roommate's Window box does streaming just fine.
Ideally, I get to keep on running Peppermint. It's fast, light, and reliable. If not that, then whatever distro is closest to those things and GUI based. (Yes, I tried Ubuntu, which had a bit of hang time. I'll go back if I have to, but I'm checking to see if there's other options).
I'm still not command-line savvy, or Bash-script capable, so if you have any workarounds or links, please go as simple as possible.
