    Youtube videos skin color displays as blue

    Hi for some reason i have noticed int he last few days that any youtube video that has people in it their skin color is blue. Is there a way to correct this? In the thumbnails at the right of any youtube page every color seems normal but the playable video like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzjMIcER4EU
    I can do a capture if that helps of what i am seeing

    Here another solution for Oneiric or Precise, install patched libvdpau:

    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tikhonov/misc
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install libvdpau1

    Works for me.
    Best, Gnusci
