Thread: Odd YouTube error, Red & double images (11.3)

  1. #1

    Default Odd YouTube error, Red & double images (11.3)

    A couple of days ago, Youtube just started looking strange, the videos are now red and have a sort of zoomed-in double image layered on top. I thought this problem was exclusive to Opera, but I tried in Chromium, and it has the same problem. I then updated flash from the OpenSUSE repo, that didn't fix anything.

    Then I went to another page (probably something like Gametrailers) and their videos didn't have the same problem.

    All the while I've been searching for anyone else who might have a similar bug, and haven't found anything. Could it be something on YouTube's side?

    Very odd, this. Any help would be useful.

    someone else had this exact issue a couple of days ago...and, posted a
    solution...i suppose the advanced search (or google) could find it..

    ah, using

    a movie, select settings and uncheck the box next to 'hardware
    acceleration'. It seems like after doing this, the movies are back in
    normal colors (found this on a linux mint forum)" in this thread

    Same problem here (Opensuse 11.3 + KDE 4.4.4) but Settings is not an highlighted option when I right click on a video in Youtube in Firefox. I did not have the problem with Chrome, but now that I tried redownloading Flash player 10.2.152.27 it is also reddish in Chrome.

    Ok, I found a solution in another thread to get access to the settings : I went to this site Moodstream™ by Getty Images which enabled me to uncheck the box next to 'hardware acceleration'.
    Removing the Youtube PREF cookie has also a positive effect but the red filter of death comes back with the next cookie.
    Another temporary solution is to use the popout switch on the bottom right of most Youtube videos. The popup windows plays normally the video.

    This solution is unacceptable. I have an Acer aspire one Z5, which already has poor 3d performance in Linux. so If I disable 3d acceleration, the performance is even worst. Does anybody know any REAL solution to this annoyance?

    No it is not the Video 3D accel that is disabled. You disable the new Flash hardware acceleration functions. Different animal.

    so you are saying that removing hardware acceleration has no effect over the performance? if that's the case, then what the heck is that option for?

    No there are two different things. One is your Video driver the other is the New Flash application. Leave the video driver alone this is not the problem. The problem us with the New Flash code which uses hardware acceleration this is what needs turning off. Has nothing to to with your video drive and it's 3D acceleration. Only has to do with Adobe's crapware

    ok I just tried it on youtube and effectively that fixed the problem, but I was right, the performance sucks. the videos look frame by frame. At least in my limited netbook.
