    Youtube+Flash: Pink-Red youtube videos on Chrome 10

    After trying several suggestions on the web, I am writing the following that applies to my Ubuntu 10.04:

    1. Go to http://www.youtube.com/html5
    Click "Enter trial of html5"
    Pros: easy, nicer clearer videos
    Cons: lots of CPU resources, full screen buggy (cannot return it to normal size...)

    2.

    a) Downgrade to flash 10.1.85

    32bit
    >wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...untu1_i386.deb
    >sudo dpkg -i flashplugin-installer_10.1.85.3ubuntu1_i386.deb

    64bit
    >wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...ntu1_amd64.deb
    >sudo dpkg -i flashplugin-installer_10.1.85.3ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    b) remove flash plugin of chrome (libgcflashplayer.so). In my (default) configuration
    > cd /opt/google/chrome
    > mv libgcflashplayer.so ~
    (just in case you want it back)

    c)
    Start chrome with the --allow-outdated-plugins option. E.g.
    > /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --allow-outdated-plugins https://mail.google.com/mail



    Pros: works as before, slightly lighter
    Cons: a bit more involved (but not hard), use downgraded flash and have to call chrome using the above mentioned flag


    The reason I wrote the thread was that I could not find the libgcflashplayer.so effect anywhere mentioned. I apologize if I repeat already known information.

    Post Disabling Hardware Accleration

    Disabling hardware accleration fixed the problem for me:

    1. go to a flash website (miniclip.com)
    2. right click on a flash content and select "Settings"
    3. in the dialog uncheck "hardware accleration" under the hardware tab.

    For me it did not work. Please also note that I am referring specifically for the google chrome. This could be due to its own flash plugin (it seems they incorporated flash 10.2).

    Re: Youtube+Flash: Pink-Red youtube videos on Chrome 10

    My solution for a working flash/chromium setup on ubuntu 10.10 i386
    1. Install Chromium Stable and Flash 10.1
      Code:
      # Install Chromium stable
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/stable && sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install -y chromium-browser
      # install flash 10.1
      cd /tmp/
      wget "http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/f/flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-installer_10.1.85.3ubuntu1_i386.deb"
      sudo dpkg -i flashplugin-installer_10.1.85.3ubuntu1_i386.deb
    2. set Chromium to use outdated plugins (I wasn't able to get sed to work for some reason, anybody know why?)
      Code:
      sudo vi /usr/share/applications/chromium-browser.desktop
      Scroll down to the bottom and change
      Code:
      Exec=/usr/bin/chromium-browser %U
      to
      Code:
      Exec=/usr/bin/chromium-browser --allow-outdated-plugins %U
      save and quit
    3. Upgrade your system without upgrading flash
      Code:
      sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -yd
      sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/flashplugin-installer*
      sudo apt-get upgrade -y --no-download --ignore-missing

    Chrome does not have "its own" flash. It uses Firefox's flash if installed.

    Re: Disabling Hardware Accleration

    So what is the file libgcflashplayer.so in
    /opt/google/chrome ? And why if I have this file in place then downgrading flash does not work?
