Fedora :: Flash Movies No Full Screen With Desktop Effects?
Jul 22, 2010
I'm currently having a problem with flash moves
whenever i try to do full screen the movies keeps playing but the picture just dosent refresh so i hit esc and it works fine in the window
so far ive tried different browsers and its the same problem full screen flash monies work when i disable desktop effects but i don't want to disable desktop effects every time i go to play a movie
does any body know a way i can make flash work with desktop effects?
I installed fedora 12 on my system but had issues with the ATI card I had at the time which I could not solve. So, I bought a Geforce 6200 hoping that would help, but I am still getting issues. Firstly, I cannot play full screen Flash. I know this has been asked before but all of the solutions I have tried have failed. Also, I would like to know if it is possible to play AVI files, as I d/l a few.
If I cannot get these two issues sorted it will be back to the dreaded Mic...... As I said, I am a complete novice here, I tried to enable desktop effects, and a message came up saying I only had 2D support, so I am guessing a driver problem? I have not installed any new drivers, but did try to get from nvidia, that I could not get to install - it was a .run file.
I have just followed the four point installation guide that I found on here, and now when the PC boots I have a slow moving blue bar across the the bottom of the screen with 'Fedora 12' next to it, and the graphics are now totally shot, looking like something from windows 3.1!
What happens is that the sound will disappear, either without any apparent reason, otherwise when I move the mouse, or pause vlc, or open up another application, in most cases FF. I have also seen the mouse flash while vlc is in fullscreen, and immediately afterward the sound is gone. When the sound disappears, the gnome-volume-control will disappear and reappear on the top taskbar. Also there will be no device under the hardware and input tab of the sound preferences when the sound disappears.
Killing and restarting the pulseaudio daemon from the cli will return the appropriate choices under sound preferences hardware/input tabs, as well as the audio. This could happen a couple of times in the period of an hour. Usually restarting vlc will solve the problem, or restarting the pulseaudio daemon. Another thing I have noticed is that I will occassionally have to kill the vlc process through the system monitor or cli, as closing vlc will not remove it from the taskbar. I have tried the fix shown here, to no avail. Using kernel 184.108.40.206-96.fc11.x86_64 on a hp dv3-2154ca.
Http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrica...res/lecture-4/ The above lecture can not be viewed in Full Screen mode . When the full screen displaying point is clicked the video stops and only the sound goes on.
I attempted to install the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package and my screen became unusable when I enabled desktop effects. I then uninstalled mesa-dri-drivers-experimental and tried to install the akmod before realizing that my card isn't supported yet. Now I can't seem to do anyting to get my screen back. I removed the blacklist on nouveau, but my screen still goes black after fedora boots. Is there any way I can just get things back to default without reinstalling the whole system?
After checking "enable desktop effects" in KDE. I'm dropped to login screen and can't login. How can I enable desktop effects? (As a solution to not being able login after checking the box I found that deleting kwinrc in .kde/share/config/ should help and it worked, so this is not a problem).
I've seen a number of post for this, but none work, does anyone know of a fix. Whenever a streaming flash video (you tube etc) is toggled to full screen the picture freezes. The sound doesn't. It's not a driver issue as video from DVD works fine
ever since i started using opensuse at the end of december, this has been bugging me. when i try to watch a full-screen videos video in either chromium or firefox, it lags to the point where maybe i'm getting 0.5 frames per second. ironically, when i launch chrome in virtualized windows 7 (virtualbox) to watch a full-screen flash video it looks smooth as butter. yes, even with the virtualization overhead and everything.
i'm using adobe flash 10,3,181,22 from the opensuse repositories, chromium 15 and firefox 5. i'm on a 64-bit system.
I've recently begun to have the problem of whenever a flash video in Firefox 4.0 goes in full screen mode, the screen goes black and my laptop is unresponsive. However, the video's sound will keep playing.
I have two 1680x1050 monitors running from the same graphics card, using xinerama. The left hand one is rotated portrait, while the right hand one remains landscape.
Some flash videos will full screen fine (4od,iplayer,.....) but some will not; in the attached screenshot you can see that there is a small section of the screen displaying the video while the video controls are correctly at the bottom of the screen. The grey block on the right flashes rapidly light and dark.
Another issue I have is that flash will not stay full screen if I move focus to something on the other screen, is there a workaround for this?
This bug is strange because it doesn't happen for me in Ubuntu (Gnome). Whenever I try to watch a Flash video in full screen, the picture always freezes after a few seconds of play, and the only way for me to unfreeze it is to get out of full screen using the escape key. I can put it back into full screen, but it always just freezes up again after a few seconds.
I figured out a strange work around for it though, but it's certainly not ideal. I figured out that if I get the time pop-up (see attachment to see what I mean) to stay up, it doesn't freeze. This happens in both Firefox and Chrome. I was going to try this in Rekonq, but I can't seem to get Flash working in Rekonq.
i'm trying to watch video on you tube. flash won't work for me anymore in full screen, so i'm trying the instructions from this web page: debian user forums - view topic - howto watch videos with only free software in debian'howto watch videos with only free software in debian'.install mozilla-mplayer, mplayer , the firefox extension greasemonkey and the script videos without flash auto for greasemonkey : videos without flash auto for greasemonkey when i try to watch you tube i get xine that trys to play the video, but it doesn't work. can i change this to use another player, or is that not going to help?
This obnoxious bar has just appeared in Smplayer at the top of the screen. It stays there even when I go full screen. Now full screen isn't full screen and there are black edges on both sides of the screen. I have not be able to figure out how to hide it. I do not need or want this onscreen display. How can I configure Smplayer to make this go away? How can I get my 16:9 full screen aspect ratio back? I have done nothing to mplayer or smplayer as far as editing any or changing any configuration files. I tried several videos and it displays on all of them. It was not there last time I used Smplayer.
i know this is normal when you use ubuntu but i was wondering if there was a way to change this or fix this. i noticed when you play a flash movie (like a videos video) in full screen and you change the volume using the volume keys on the keyboard, it exits out of full screen mode.
Running ubuntu 9.10 on an hp pavilion 2000 laptop, with 2.5GB of ram and a dual core (i think). Works at perfect speed with everything, except when I'm tyring to watch a flash video which slows everything down and gets choppy, especially when in full screen. From looking around online I see some people blaming adobe and some people blaming NVidia drivers. Get the impression the problem is a bit of both.
Funny thing is it worked a lot better with the drivers that installed automatically with the ubuntu install, soon as I put the updated nvidia drivers on it started screwing up. how I go back to those default drivers? Tried unchecking the drivers listed in Hardware Drivers, but when I restarted was stuck in very low resolution, so I'm guessing that's not the same as the drivers used after installing the OS.
My setup at home uses a laptop, with a larger external monitor in addition to the built-in LCD panel, which is primary. I can see the larger monitor from the rest of the room and use it as my TV, for playing DVDs and various types of web video. However, it isn't ideal for Flash video. For instance, if I watch a video from Hulu or any other Flash-based site, I can expand it to full-screen mode.
However, no matter which monitor the browser window is on, the full-screen mode is always on the laptop LCD panel, which is both too small and not visible from most of the room. Does anyone know of a way to force the Flash video to play full-screen on the monitor I select instead of the primary? My video chipset is NVidia, using kernel 2.6.31 (Ubuntu).
I am running 9.10 on a laptop with an external monitor. when i run a flash video in full screen on the external monitor and click anything on the workspace of the laptop screen, the flash video on the external monitor will revert back from full screen.
this did not happen a couple of weeks back. i have not used it for 3 weeks. maybe one of the updates in between changed some setting?
We should find a way to patch Flash plugin to inhibit the display of the warning "Press ESC to exit full screen mode". On Windows it's possible to perform the trick perfectly by patching the DLL using a Hex editor, but on Linux? I'm unable to correctly alter the binary /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so .
I have a Dell OptiPlex 755 DT almost 3 years old. I did install Ubuntu 10.10, no problem. Everything I working except for one small issue. When I try to show video on flash full screen, then the picture gets small and freeze, the computer still works fine, but the video freeze. The same gos for Facebook games on full screen doesn't work,, computer doesn't freeze, I can click anywhere and get back to normal.
Dos anyone knows what to do about not working Adobe Flash on Full Screen?
As far as I can tell, I have all the applicable applications and plugins (for this, Debian 5.0.6 installation). I type in Code:about:plugins in either iceweasel or epiphany browser and get a list that includes:
Code: Installed plugins Find more information about browser plugins at mozilla.org.
I am having some weird problem with the firefox based flash player when playing videos in full screen. The video flashes white in areas while the video is playing. I don't know if this is Ubuntu, Firefox or flash. I am running Lucid on a Macbook Pro
After update of adobe plugin to version 10.1.102.64 (10.1.r102) plugin crashes if I try to switch to full screen. Previous plugin (10.1.53.64) worked perfectly well. Anybody with the same problem? My system is System76 Gazelle, Ubuntu 8.04 with all latest updates, nvidia drivers.
1. Same effect in Google Chrome, which uses its own plugin 10.1.r103
2. Same effect (both in Firefox and Chrome) on Thinkpad T41 with ubuntu 8.04
I downgraded plugin to r53 for now, but it's not a good idea, last update fixed some security issues.
I have downloaded the recommended NVIDIA driver for my Quadro FX 1400 graphics card which has 256 MB RAM. I have my laptop in a docking station and from the docking station is a DVI to HDMI converter then HDMI cable to my TV (the idea is to use it as an internet TV slave! ). When I come to configuring the NVIDIA X Server, it correctly detects both my laptop screen and my TV via the HDMI connection. However, when I come to save the settings for the X server and go to restart it, it cannot save the configuration file. This is most annoying as it does not allow me to use the dualview I need.
The second problem comes when I use something like the BBC iplayer or anything that uses the flash player. I have the latest flash player with Firefox which works fine in non-full screen mode. However, when switching to full screen, the CPU load jumps to 100% and the playback is really jerky. Had this running the beloved windows XP before and could handle full screen no problems. I have seen a few posts here which show workarounds to zoom in on the small screen on Firefox but would prefer to run it in the full screen mode.
This only started after the recent updates which included a lot of sysv stuff in Squeeze. I'm not talking the Gnome or Xwindows consoles, I'm talking the full-on type you get when you do the CTL-ALT-F2 type of console. before those updates, I had no trouble. Now I can't get back into the gui by pressing CTL-ALT-F7 as usual. All i get is just a black screen. I do have the nvidia proprietary driver installed using DKMS, and I am running the latest (I think) liquorix kernel.
I saw a compizconfig video on ....., I forgot what it was, but I saw that they were running a video full screen and switched desktops or work areas and when they went back the video was still full screen.
Right now if I do a video full screen and switch to another desktop and come back to the video one, it is back to the window size before full screened.
How can I accomplish for my video to remain full screen even if i switch desktops?
