New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

With the new flashplugin there is an issue with the video overlay. Some times after watching a video the overlay stays there. The only way to "reset" it is to restart X.

Does anyone face the same problem?

GPU: Nvidia 8400 GS proprietary drivers.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

Have you enabled Hardware acceleration through /etc/adobe/mms.cfg ?

Yep, but it doesn;t seem to make a difference. Hardware accelerated or not, it has the same behavior.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

I had that too. I just logged out and did

nvidia-xconfig

and haven't had it since. Don't really know if it was the cure or not.

same here.

I also have geforce 9600 GT.

turning off hardware acceleration in the flash menu gets rid of the problem for me but I would of course
prefer to leave it on.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

The problem may not be related to flash since i notice it only when using youtube html5 version.
This would mean the problem is with video driver.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

Is there an upstream bug report system for flashplugin?

Really annoying. This version should be discarded.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

Another victim here. 8400 GS and 260.19.36 driver.

It happens randomly, with and without hardware acceleration. Even Flash games are affected!

Annoying, indeed. Let's downgrade, then.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

same problem here on i686, but not on x86_64 - I downgraded the crap - no mumbo jumbo helped - put it in IgnorePkg in pacman.conf. I, too have nvidia.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

I had same problem, but i fixed this by right clicking on flash content, clicking settings and unchecking enable hardware acceleration. After that you must to restart your xserver.

Re: New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue.

Had to downgrade to flashplugin-10.1.82.76-1. Seems to have fixed it.
Kinda serious problem since it affects X in general when it occurs.

Nvidia driver 260.19.36.
