Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Then I think you can safely remove nspluginwrapper (both versions if you have both installed) without affecting any of your browser plugins, which would seem to all be 64 bit. Restart FF after removal.

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Ok removing the nspluginwrapper makes the browser point to the non wrapped version:
Code:
Shockwave Flash

    File: libflashplayer.so
    Version: 
    Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
And it does not fix the hardware acceleration colours problem.

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

With the nspluginwrapper package removed, there should now not be any "wrapped" version. No, I didn't expect the nspluginwrapper thing to have any effect on the flash-plugin color issue. In a flash video window, have you right-clicked, selected "settings", then unchecked the "use hardware acceleration" box yet?

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Yes i knew you didn't expect it to have an effect on the issue. I just said it in case someone was wondering if there was a relation.

And yes I had already discovered that unchecking that option fixes the issue.

Just tested the new Flash version in Ubuntu and the "hardware acceleration" option presents no issue.

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Same as Kakao. I only have flash-plugin-11.2.202.228-release.x86_64 installed from Adobe's repository. I did not bother installing nspluginwrapper since there was a x64 version of flash.

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

I have this same problem. Fedora 16, nvidia binary driver from rpmfusion. And yes, disabling hw acceleration fixes it.

There is newer nvidia driver at rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing repo. For now I just keep hardware acceleration disabled.

edit: Nvidia is aware of this. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...&postcount=104

Yes, that fix color problem, but makes videos playing very laggy at fullscreen. At least, for me...

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

EDIT: Please ignore this post! I completely failed to notice that this thread had a second page...

I suppose running "yum remove nspluginwrapper.{i686,x86_64}" should do it.

If it warns of other packages being removed, then presumably it is still needed.

I've no idea whether it relates to the original problem, but it's worth a try.

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Same problem here too. Looks like they've been aware of it for a while:

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

I've found that I don't experience the problem when Youtube ads come up. Ads are full color, but the videos themselves are off.
I'm running Kubuntu 11.10 and Google Chrome 18.0.1025.142

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Right click on the flash video, select "Settings" and toggle "Enable Hardware acceleration" check box.

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Same issue here. I did find one possible solution here:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/11712...o-appears-blue

The fix is on the last post, it is:

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

The poster also referred to this bug report:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...in/+bug/967091

I have just applied this, and will test it as soon as I finish reading the forums.

Edit:

I tested it. It seems to work partially. Disabling hardware acceleration together with the change above seems to have done more to fix it than the creation of the mms.cfg above. However, it does give me a couple of things to try by changing the settings in the file that was created.

Re: Flash 11.2 strange colors

Stephen's fix resolves the colour issue for me, but the plugin is much less stable now and youtube videos load more slowly (they now take longer to load than they do to watch). I've attempted to turn off hardware acceleration, but can't untick the box - it just refuses to do so. I've seen in places that this might be related to libdvpau - how would I find out if I have this installed/how would I resolve it?

Lovely little parting shot for adobe to leave Linux users with

Edit: After removing the mms.cfg file, stability and speed returned, but so did smurf-vision. Switching to youtube's HTML5 trial has brought back correct colour and so far appears to be stable - the videos have the 'slower loading' issue again, but they're at least more-or-less at 'real time' loading speed for me rather than being notably slower. It's an alternative fix, I guess! (And the trial can be opted out of if you dislike it, thankfully)

Edit-the-edit: HTML5 solution doesn't work on embedded videos unless they were embedded using HTML5 syntax. Of course
