    YouTube not normal colors.

    Hello.
    I'm posting this here because I'm only curious.
    It is some weeks now that all videos in YouTube (and only in YouTube) are not with their normal colors.
    To be more specific: all the people appear blue, everything that normally is red now is blue, the sky also has a different color.
    What I'm saying is that nothing anymore is in the normal colors as before (some weeks ago).
    I would like to know if this problem is happening only to me or not.

    disable hardware acceleration in flash.
    right click the video > settings > untick 'enable hardware acceleration`

    Having same issue here across multiple distros. Cant seem to disable hardware accleration as the setting dialog just freezes while video keeps playing... /sigh

    Good news is Youtube now is using HTML5 on newer videos.

    You can set it by creating an mms.cfg file in /etc/adobe/ that reads:

    Code:
    EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0
    OverrideGPUValidation=true
    This fixes the color for me on youtube but unfortunately makes flash crashy for other sites. Adobe really screwed this one.

    I have been using and enjoying the FlashVideoReplacer addon...high quality, embedded, smooth youtube playback.

    This works. If you can't untick the option, refresh the page and view in full screen and try again. Should work fine.

    This worked for me. In short, you do this:

    sudo mkdir /etc/adobe
    echo -e "EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1\nOverrideGPUValidation =true" | sudo tee /etc/adobe/mms.cfg > /dev/null

    Colors are back, but flash crashes from time to time.

    This works very well, but not all videos are supported (falls back to flash for unsupported videos, so you still need a solution for flash).

    It's a known bug, probably in the NVidia driver or in Flash.

    Very annoying, I hope it gets fixed soon...

    I read all the threats, and really it's very informative for me, for you tube video you need to disable acceleration.

    True, but you can't watch videos with ads with HTML5 because YouTube has not updated the ad system to work with HTML5
