Youtube on Ubuntu

Posted 29 September 2012 - 03:55 PM

Bit of an odd problem, not exactly urgent but fairly irritating.

When I watch a youtube video on my ubuntu distro, all the colors are wrong. The weird thing is, it only happens when the video is on youtube. If I watch the exact same video on an embedded website, it works fine.

Some print screens:

Video I posted on the fantasy football thread:

Exact same video but watching on youtube:

Happens in both Firefox and Chromium. I'm actually stumped as to why this is happening so any ideas would be appreciated.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You can try:

1. Disabling hardware acceleration (right-click player->Settings).
2. Installing Gnash flash plug-in.
