11.4 after upgrade - flash discolored

Weird… I upgraded to 11.4 and now my flash videos (off of youtube) are discolored/badly visible.

Anyone experiencing this? 11.4 x86-64bit.

Confirmed: I have the same issue (on a HP 6730b with Intel GM45 graphics onboard), before upgrading to 11.4 it worked fine.

This is not only a problem in openSuse:

Try disabling hardware acceleration for flash (right click on a flash video
-> settings)


Ok, its not discolored but has blocks showing up in the vids. I will look into disabling hardware accel…

I have the same problem with some flash videos. Unfortunately disabling
hardware acceleration didn’t solve that.

  1. Open a Terminal
  2. Switch to root
  3. If you have an old Flash and nspluginwrapper:
    zypper rm flash-player nspluginwrapper
  4. Get Flash from the adobe Website
  5. Unpack and copy the file here: /usr/lib64/browser-plugins
  6. Restart any Browser and have Fun !
