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)

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
