    Lightbulb [solved] Flash video turns white after two seconds without sound

    Hi there!

    When I'm trying to watch some flash video (YouTube but not only)
    on Opera (9.64) or Firefox 3:
    -- it plays only for two seconds
    -- it then turns white
    -- there is no sound

    There is no problem when I try to watch the same videos on Epiphany.

    I'm on Jaunty and I have "adobe-flashplugin 10.0.22.87-2jaunty1".

    Reading a few forum suggestions, I tried to
    -- reinstall adobe-flashplugin
    -- reinstall pulseaudio
    -- install libflashsupport
    -- change every sound settings to pulseaudio
    -- change every sound settings to something not pulseaudio (eg. alsa)

    Nothing changed.

    So ... ... HELP!

    for amd64 this fixed it for me.. but i don't know if you are 32 or 64bit

    http://download.macromedia.com/pub/l...6_64.so.tar.gz

    basically you need to create a .mozilla/plugins folder in you home directory, extract files to it and then point Opera to it.

    hope you get it sorted!

    libflashsupport or flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound is for use with flash 9 only, it's known to cause the white flash window with flash 10.
    and ensure you don't have any open source flash like gnash or swfdec installed, these two won't let firefox use adobe flash if installed
    only install one adobe flash plugin either the adobe-flashplugin or flashplugin-nonfree (flashplugin-installer in jaunty 9.04)

    The issue is caused by libflashsupport, as gandaran suggested. This library is obsolete and shouldn't be used.

    This is the bug report: #192888

    Thanks for your answers but as I said in my original post,
    I installed libflashsupport after this problem first occured
    as a try to solve it...

    And now, it is uninstalled but the problem remains.

    So, any idea ?

    you removed the flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound?
    which ubuntu 9.04 - 32-bits or 64-bits?
    post the output of locate libflash
    and also the output of typing this code in firefox url bar
    Code:
    about:plugins

    Re: Flash video turns white after two seconds without sound

    remove the flash 9 you have installed here
    /home/username/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    just delete the libflashplayer.so file
    restart firefox and try the youtube videos now, everything else looks okay.
    you also need to remove the same file from /usr/lib/opera/plugins, opera will work fine with the flashplugin-installer flash.
