    Flash Player — YouTube colors messed up

    For the last month or so I've had this problems with Adobe's flash player, but only on YouTube — other video sites like Vimeo work just fine.

    With both the adobe-flashplugin and the flashplugin-installer packages I get totally messed up colors on YT (see screenshot attached.) On Google Chrome, when I use the built-in flashplayer, the colors are correct, but the video runs at double speed.

    Versions from the Chrome plugins page:

    Code:
    Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
    Name:	Shockwave Flash
    Description:	Shockwave Flash 11.2 r31
    Version:	11.2.31.121
    Location:	/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so
    Type:	PPAPI (out-of-process)
    and

    Code:
    Name:	Shockwave Flash
    Version:	11.2 r202
    Location:	/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
    Type:	NPAPI
    This started when I was still using 11.10, but the upgrade to 12.04 didn't change anything.

    Neither of the two problems occur on my netbook, which is also running 12.04 with the same versions of Flash.

    Suggestions, anyone?

    Thanks

    start a YT video/go full screen /right click/choose settings/untick hardware acceleration/restart video

    You will have to do this on each browser you use and also everytime they do an upgrade of sorts


    should fix it

    Yaaaaaaaa!!! Thankyouthankyouthankyou so much! I tried to do that before, but I didn't go to fullscreen first, and every time the player crashed. It worked for the version installed through the package manager; people look a lot healthier now Didn't make a difference for the double speed problem in Chrome's built-in plugin, but that I don't care too much about, as long as I have a working version.

    Thanks a million!
