Broken buttons on youtube flash video

Hi. I've been dealing with this issue since a loong loong time ago on many linux workstations, so I was wondering if there is a workaround. I could just use HTML5, but not all websites like showing embedded youtube videos using HTML5. And the playlist view in youtube doesn't support HTML5 too.
Sometimes it's broken, somtimes not. I'm using the latest flashplayer from arch repos. And by the way flash doesn't work on the native Linux Steam, but that's another and not important problem. Here is how it looks like.

I don't have any ideas.  You may want to tell us which browser you are using.

The browser doesn't matter within this issue. I use chromium, firefox, opera and this happens sometimes when changing from 360p to 720p or 1080p, well still it's a mistery why this occurs.

Re: Broken buttons on youtube flash video

Does this happen entirely randomly, or is it reproducible on certain videos?

Which graphics driver are you using?

This happens randomly for me. And I have noticed it with different distros.

Hmm, using KDE4 Plasma, Google Chrome, and AMD Catalyst drivers here and Flash videos work nearly flawlessly. What's your graphics driver?

Could the difference be in the flashplugin being used?  If you are using Google Chrome wouldn't it be different than the stock flash in the repo.  Not that this solves the matter since I use the repo flash w/ firefox and don't have any problems.  Perhaps the op should try Google Chrome and see if a different flashplugin fixes his problem?
