    Chrome youtube videos - only sound

    I am using Google Chrome 12.0.742.124 and Chromium 12.0.742.112,
    Both web browsers have the same bug. When I play youtube videos sometimes the player is not loaded properly. I hear sound but I don't see video and player navigation buttons. I need to refresh page several times to get youtube player loaded.

    How to solve this problem?

    Try upgrading the ubuntu-restricted-extras packages via package manager or terminal. This package also includes Flash, which youtube uses to display videos.

    I installed the newest ubuntu-restricted-extras (version 43), but this issue still occurs.

    When I type:
    Code:
    chrome://plugins
    I can see that nothing changes in the Flash section. It uses:
    Code:
    Shockwave Flash 10.3 r181
    /var/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so

    I found the solution on another site.

    Basically, it has something to do with a hardware accelerator.
    Just right click on a working youtube video screem, then hit settings, click the display icon (A picture of a monitor) then un-check "Enable hardware acceleration"
    Worked for me, hope this helps
