    Re: FLASH-AID: remove conflicting plugins and install proper flash plugin version

    Quick question: After running the scrip in this plugin, am I suppose to get vdpau acceleration in my ION? I ran it and I still got no HW acceleration on youtube, with the nv drivers, compiz on and off.

    Thanks in advance.

    Lovinglinux; If I start the terminal from Applications, then cut-and-paste the script into it, everything works fine. When I try to use the Execute button the terminal opens but the screen is blank and thats when I get the warning. My Gnome-terminal is in the bin/usr directory so I can't figure out what is going wrong. However, using the cut-and-paste works fine for me. Thanks for the help again.

    Problem solved!

    Maybe it would be a good idea for Flash-aid to include this:

    Code:
    Open (or create) /etc/adobe/mms.cfg and put this in it:
    
    EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
    As I had to do this with the new version of Flash in order to have vdpau acceleration.

    Thanks a lot for the tip man, now it works perfectly, tested on firefox and Opera. How would I figure that out without the Ubuntu forum?

    Hope there will be better flash support for Linux overall in the future, not just for those who have the right Nvidia cards.

    I have released version 2.0.3, which has an export button. So you just need to click it to export the script to your desktop, then drag it to a terminal. It does not fix your problem, but provides a convenient workaround.

    Re: FLASH-AID: remove conflicting plugins and install proper flash plugin version

    I had trouble viewing 720p flash videos last week so I installed flash-aid and it fixed the issue. Today, however, even 480p is choppy, and I have no idea what happened. I have run flash-aid several times today. It keeps downloading the same file every time, flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz, and it completes without errors. I have this version installed now: 10.3 d162.

    EDIT: I tried switching to expert mode and using the Adobe 32-bit version instead of the default 64-bit beta, so now I have 10.2 r152 installed but the problem persists.

    EDIT: This is strange. Rebooting seems to have fixed the issue. Now I can view 720p fullscreen again. Why would rebooting fix it when restarting firefox would not?

    I ran Flash-aid, and was really hopeful, but it didn't fix my problem: watching youtube in fullscreen... Any suggestions anyone?

    EDIT: I tried rebooting, but it didn't fix the problem. Still white(ish) screen instead of video in fullscreen...

    I'm no expert but your machine might not have the power for fullscreen flash video. I have an old Sony Vaio with similar specs and can't watch video with that either. Here are the specs of yours: http://www.ciao.co.uk/Productinforma...ition__6101108.
