Flash Player Skips streaming video in Firefox

For some reason, Adobe Flash Player is skipping in my Firefox.
When I go to any video, it will just skips to wherever it's been buffered and it won't play any audio. It'll continue skipping until the end. So I can't watch any videos that use Flash player.
I have tried re-installing Flash, I've tried different versions of it, and reinstalling Firefox.
Help please
Thanks in advance~

BTW I'm using Windows XP

Type about:plugins in the address bar and check the version of flash plugin Firefox is using.

Also does it happen with all sites like youtube also ?

It shows up as "Shockwave Flash 10.0 r22"
It happens on YouTube, in fact, it happens on every single video on the web that uses Flash Player to play.

Re: Flash Player Skips streaming video in Firefox

Note down the cpu usage while playing flash videos. Do you see any sudden high cpu use ?

And i use r12 version. it works fine for me. I attached the required dll file.
Uninstall previous version of flash, extract and place it inside your firefox_install_directory\plugins folder. Restart firefox and open about:plugins and verify you are using v10 r12 version. Clear Firefox private data and try playing flash files.
