    Re: people are strange - well.... blue

    There has to be a better solution for fixing only youtube videos than disabling hardware acceleration, which will potentially affect everything that uses the screen...

    As others have said, the fix is to go fullscreen, right-click on the video and choose Settings. Uncheck the hardware acceleration box. Then close the browser and open it again. The problem should be resolved.

    This bug was created by Adobe but will never be fixed, since they have discontinued support for Flash on the Linux platform. Nice of them to leave us with this bug just as they shut down development.
    FYI: Development of flash on Linux has been turned over to Google, so all hope is not lost.

    Hopefully Google will maintain Flash development for browsers besides Chrome. I prefer Chromium to Chrome, as it is open source.
    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.

    Agreed
    The only thing that upsets me more on this issue than Adobe leaving us hanging is people proclaiming Solved! by turning off HW acceleration.

    You can have low grade video, choppy high res, or crystal clear high res smurfs.

    i can't wait for Flash to die but it's gonna be a long time

    I encourage people to sign up for YouTube's html5 trial, though in my experience most everything is still in Flash.

    There are a few solution options on that page. Which one worked for you?

    In my experience, hardware acceleration was extremely buggy. Sometimes, it would play way faster than it should, then slow down a lot.
