When watching video with an embedded flash

One fix

“What I did was right click on any flash video, go down to settings, and uncheck the box that says enable hardware acceleration. “ dodo3773 shares, continuing with the steps that fixed the problem

“Then open a terminal and type:

  • sudo mkdir /etc/adobe
  • sudo su
  • sudo echo \"OverrideGPUValidation = 1\" >> /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
  • tested and worked as of 10.14.10 Luiz 00:04, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Additional Information

You can read a good background article on this subject here. Basically, full screen flash works properly if the following OpenGL enhancements are shown (working) when you type in glxinfo:

  • GL_ARB_multitexture
  • GL_EXT_framebuffer_object
  • GL_ARB_shader_objects
  • GL_ARB_shading_language_100
  • GL_ARB_fragment_shader

If not, its better to work without GPU acceleration (as described above). This is because the specs of the systems of the systems we give out usually have enough resources to brute-force render flash without acceleration.
