Flash video issues

I'm on a laptop with Intel 82852/855GM integrated graphics (Yes, this is a pretty old laptop), and flash works fine except for the fact that all of my videos are distorted as such:

I've looked around and haven't found a similar issue. Anyone got any idea what's going on here? Downgrading does not solve the issue.

PS: If my thumbnail is too large, let me know and I'll change it to a smaller one.

Re: Flash video issues

You haven't even mentioned which web browser you use.


Use the Source, Luke!

Re: Flash video issues

Issue exists in Firefox and Chrome... It in't web browser specific. HTML5 videos render fine.

Re: Flash video issues

Do you mean Google Chrome from AUR or Chromium? If the latter, try using chromium-pepper-flash-stable from AUR.

Also I imagine this problem happens with Flash videos on other sites too (not just YouTube)?

Re: Flash video issues

Correct... this is with all flash videos. Downgrading does not solve the issue. Pepper would be fine if Chromium was my default browser >.<

I'll test it anyways. Pepper works fine.

Re: Flash video issues

I have the same issue with my very old PC with the official flashplayer.

$ lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)

Flash video looks like in your case, but e.g. flash used on http://www.rmfon.pl/play,130 for the radio app works OK.

Pepper works fine for me too.

Re: Flash video issues

Try turning off hardware acceleration in flash settings, then refresh the page and check for improvement.

Re: Flash video issues

Can't do anything with the settings in flash... I've disabled it in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg to no avail. Gonna chalk this one up to drivers and work around it.

Re: Flash video issues

I have the same issue on a ThinkPad R51 with an upto date KDE install and Firefox.

gnash-gtk works for me as an alternative to view YouTube videos after -R flashplugin. Can't watch videos on a number of other sites though!
