    youtube videos changed color suddenly?

    A recent update (don't exactly know when) seems to have changed the color of ALL youtube videos. All people are now blue (and no, I'm not watching a smurf movie ) and blue colors have turned brown. This is for literally all youtube videos and I tried a lot. This has been working perfectly for months. It it just today that I notice this (but I hadn't been watching youtube videos for a few days so it may have broken earlier).

    Videos played using movie player or VLC are correct with colors.

    Any ideas? I'm using Chromium btw.

    Greetings,

    I can confirm this, happened after flashplugin-installer was updated from 11.1.102.63ubuntu0.11.04.1 to 11.2.202.228ubuntu0.11.04.1. Only affecting youtube, other flash video seems to be unaffected

    Same here also after the recent update. Had a similar problem before with normal videos, but i managed to correct that using the Tint (Hue) slider on Totem player.
    I have no idea how to correct this however.

    I see the same thing. Disabling hardware acceleration in flash is a workaround that works here.

    My videos are smurfed, or avatarized. All the people is now blue.

    Thanks!
    Right clicking and turning OFF hardware acceleration worked for me too.

    Hmm.. for some reason i can't click that hardware acceleration window, it responds to nothing.
    I have to reload the page to make it go away.

    This is quite annoying..seems like i am stuck with the smurfs until a real fix surfaces.
    Tried unticking the box using the TAB button, but that doesn't work either.

    For people with problems disabling HW acceleration try adding this line to /etc/adobe/mms.cfg



    Code:
    EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
    Also have a look at this page and see what works for you.
