Videos show up green?
Posted 10 April 2012 - 08:34 AM
The other day some videos on Youtube started showing as a still, green image, sound still intact. It's only some videos, others are fine. I found that if I right-click on the given video, go into Flash Player settings, and uncheck 'use hardware accelleration' or the like, and refresh the page, the video shows properly, although the quality seems to have been degraded some. It's the same in all the browsers I've tried.
I've tried reinstalling flash player, but to no avail. Any ideas?

|You haven't installed any new software recently? Do other video streaming sites like Vimeo have the same problem?|
It's the same no matter what site I use, but as I said, only certain formats, so it's a bit difficult to get it consistantly. It seems mostly to be .flv videos, but I'm not sure.

|Do you have DivX installed?|
I actually installed it trying to fix the problem, but it didn't change anything.
It came pretty much out of the blue, yeah. I can't think of anything significant that could have caused it.

This sometimes came up aswell before I refreshed it.

A quick switch to a different graphic card solved the problem. Try updating your graphic card driver or if
you have the latest go back to the previous one.

Sorry I know that doesn't really help the topic much. I just wanted to clarify that part.

This did the trick. Installed the latest driver, and all seems well now. Thanks guys.

At the time you had this happening do you have any idea what version of Flash you had/have. I don't know with IE but with Firefox if you open a tab and in the address bar type: about:plugins then scroll down to Shockwave Flash you'll see the version number.
If it says 184.108.40.206 there is a newer version out now 220.127.116.11 but I got the green screen still until I disable the hardware acceleration but then I also haven't updated my video drivers since 285.62 (nvidia)
Side note: This really had me confused because the other day I started up my system and Flash updated and all the installer says is "11.2". Did the same thing last night and for the same thing so I thought something screwy was going on because normally it would say something like "11" then "11.1" then 11.2 and then you'd expect to see 11.3 and so on. If they had shown the full version number then I might have caught that and not thought anything of it other than a minor update which what it is.

I've had a problem with those plug ins, there's a SAFE mode that some browsers may wind up running in, without needed plug-ins
I've been perplexed by how this seems automated at times, and not because I chose something to run as such
Adobe Flash latest update is 11.2 version (Wolf points out the full revisions, but as it updates upon reboot, it just shows the first three digits)
The Shockwave applet also has an installer, so it's good to keep a version around for about a year in archive.
I practice this with any useful installer. Hardware Acceleration is referring to your graphics cards, not everyone is going to face this issue, as such. The latest nvidia driver also won't solve everyone's problem in this case, since they differ and video BIOS is geared toward what you bought and entrust in video use
