Right click on any flash video or element, then disable hardware acceleration under settings.

I've got red playback on youtube too. When I right click on the video, "settings" is grayed out so I can't select it. Any more ideas? I reported the problem to youtube but have yet to hear back.

Try viewing a flash video on another site, then change the setting from there.

just wanted to note that I have the same problem. Youtube only, right-click "settings" grayed out, embedded video not a problem.

You can go find any flash video from another site and do the right clicking, or you can clean up the cache for flash (use bleachbit, for example), after cleaning the cache the settings option for youtube wouldn't be greyed out anymore. Maybe you can just delete all Youtube cookies from Firefox, but I haven't tried that.

You can edit /etc/adobe/mms.cfg to disable hw-acceleration:

$ cd /etc/adobe
/etc/adobe$ sudo nano mms.cfgjust change:

EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0this is very useful for me, because I use betterprivacy for firefox which delets all flash-cookies but also the settings. >> http://blogs.adobe.com/penguinswf/2008/08/secrets_of_the_mmscfg_file_1.html

there is this also a big tread about this problem over here:

I personally use flash-aid for firefox to do all this and I must confess that currently flash seems to ignore mms.cfg. but this is maybe because I choose npwrapper.libflashplayer.so for 32bit compatibility.
