libvdpau1 update 'Jeffs' up video on nvidia graphics

libvdpau1

Latest update makes video colour green/blue

Don’t update
or roll back if you did like me

> Latest update makes video colour green/blue

is that flash video in a browser, or DVD movie into (say) vlc, or ??

just wondering (out loud) if switching off hardware accel in flash fixes
it…again?

hmmmm…and, i guess you mean the latest 12.2 update…


dd

12.2
movies such as .avi, mp4 in mplayer family
vlc was OK

I installed that update in the early A.M. here. According to the change log in yast it was to have a backport to fix the blue guys in Flash vids.
Right after I put it in I unchecked Enable Hardware acceleration in the Flash settings. NAAAH! didn’t fix, back to rechecking the aforementioned box.
Meanwhile with the update in for anything else video no problems here.

Mine is updated but still looks good
I’m using the 310.14 from the nvidia ftp site
even firefox you tube flash video has no blue tint color
when hardware acceleration is enabled.

Just tried it VERY HAPPY TO SAY IT WORKS!!!

I followed suggestions on ML but I still need the rollback

Glad that it worked for you.:slight_smile:

Actually, before reading this thread I wasn’t aware of the colour issue in flash being addressed so I just checked (enabling the hardware acceleration) it and it is working fine, no red/blue swap. Neither do I have any MPlayer issues regarding colours.

Cheers

First time that I have had the ‘blue’ flash issue. Only with with firefox and konqueror strangley - chrome and chromium work fine. Switching off hardware acceleration cures the problem.

Videos (after installing libvdpau1) do not appear to be affected - tested using vlc, mplayer & xine. My system has the 304.60 nvidia driver and is running 64 bit 12.3 ms 0.

You can prevent flash player from finding libvdpau and this is described
under No.4 from here:

If find this the best way to see the natural colors back again.

Thanks for posting the link. I tried option 4 (suitably adjusted as I use a 64 bit version) but it didn’t seem to work for me - which is not really a big issue for me as I don’t often watch youtube.
