Software :: Flash Videos Vanish In Firefox 3.6.15 When Not Being Viewed / Why Is So - Fix It?

Mar 14, 2011

I've been having this problem when viewing online videos/tv, primarily and similar sites.

The videos load up and play with no problems, but if the view is shifted away from the video (e.g. scrolling down the page so the video is no longer visible or switching to another tab or window), after a little while (up to a few minutes) the audio from the video stops and, upon returning to the video window, the video has been replaced with a light grey rectangle. The problem seems to be different from others described here since the videos themselves are running with no problem until the view shifts away from them. Flash-based chat applications have the same problem.

I'm running Firefox 3.6.15 in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick). All systems updated repeatedly, as far as I know the problem has existed forever. The issue doesn't seem to exist in Chromium, interestingly (but I prefer Firefox...)

Any suggestions on diagnostics to try to find the cause and solution?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Flash Videos Vanish Part Way Through?

Feb 2, 2010

over the last few weeks (i forget exactly when it started) viewing flash videos with konqueror on videos and on the bbc news site has become a bit of a lottery. generally the video starts ok but after a minute or so the video sometimes just disappears -- not even a black box, just white screen and no adobe flash menu on a right-click. the problem happens maybe 50% of the time with videos over a minute or so.

i have seen this on two different boxes both with karmic with the backports enabled. the problem certainly occurs with both kde 4.3.4 & 4.3.5, and i think it was also seen with 4.3.2. does anyone else see this problem? if so is there a fix? i think the following are the most relevant package versions:

ii flashplugin-installer adobe flash player plugin installer
ii konqueror 4:4.3.5-0ubuntu1~karmic1 kde 4's advanced file manager, web browser and document viewer

Now, when I go to view them from Vista machines (32 or 64, IE or Firefox), they look compressed or skinny like this: [URL] When viewed on other Ubuntu or XP machines, they look fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Low Quality 360p Flash Videos In Fullscreen In Firefox?

Feb 27, 2011

i got the weirdest flash player problem on the planet. so, here's what the problem is. whenever i play low quality 360p flash videos in fullscreen in firefox, i get horrible performance and it eats up all the cpu resources, as compared to 1080p fullscreen video, which is smoooooooth and doesn't take up as many resources as low quality videos. why is that? i am using flash 10.2 beta 64 bit and have 64 bit ubuntu, but the problem persisted even on the stock flash player.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Drop-down Menus Vanish When Scrolling Onto Them?

Aug 7, 2011

This is a problem I had in Ubuntu some years ago that just seemed to go away; sporadically I will want to select a website by positioning the cursor over the drop-down arrow to the right side of the url box- after the list is displayed it will vanish immediately when I attempt to position the cursor over it to make a selection. Minimizing then maximizing Firefox resolves it.

A minor problem yes - but it would be nice to not have to deal with it.

Ubuntu :: How To Save Flash Videos

Mar 6, 2011

I used to save flash videos by going to /tmp so that i can watch them later, without having to stream (and i'm not talking about ..... or anywhere else where it's against the ToU to save videos).As many of you already know, videos are no longer saved in /tmp with flashplayer 10.2 (or they're delted immediately). I'm using Google Chrome and I've tried looking in the Cache and I've tried all kinds of things and i can't figure out how to save videos.I would really appreciate any help you guys can give me. I wouldnt mind downgrading my version of flash (actually i'd love to do that if i knew how) but chrome seems to have flash built-in or something (?) so i have no idea how to do that.

I found a script that allows me to open whatever flash video i have open in browser with vlc, but vlc won't allow me to save as or anything. The site said that i can change the parts of the script to say mplayer to open with mplayer but i tried that and the script just stopped working. This is the script:

FLASH_TMP=`ls /tmp | grep Flash*`

Debian :: YouTube Videos And Seamonkey Without Flash

Jul 22, 2015

WRT "no flash youtube video"? OS is debian wheezy with iceweasel 31.80. I have completely removed adobe flash (I think). I have installed the html5 video everywhere addon, and have allowed youtube to set cookies. However, when I go to youtube and attempt to play a vid, noscript prompts me to allow scripting. I am somewhat reluctant to use any google services, and am puzzled that youtube, which proclaims html5 as default (now), would need the googlevideo service? Note that I have removed flash because of its past insecurities. I guess the real question: "Does youtube (or iceweasel) really support html5?

Fedora :: Flash Videos Playing Too Fast

Dec 24, 2010

First answer this: Do you have a video card with an HDMI port on it? If you aren't sure you can look for this: (FWI its close to the same size as a VGA port) If you answered yes, follow these steps and hopefully it will solve the ..... Flash issue. (Fedora 14 KDE instructions)

Kicker Menu > Computer > System Settings > Multimedia

Select "Phonon" on the left. With Phonon selected, click on "Audio Output" at the top and notice the right box fills with all your audio devices listed in order of which device is default starting from the top. Notice the "(HDMI)" next to one of them lol? Simply click the HDMI device and then click "Defer" a few times. This should solve your Flash problems permanently. he reason why this happens is HDMI is both video AND audio. If both are being processed through a video card, theres nothing slowing it down for normal playback.

Fedora :: Audio Stuttering In Certain Flash Videos

Feb 17, 2011

i've been experiencing an issue with audio playback for certain flash videos that stream from the web. most play smoothly, like the videos at videos. others have this strange background noise that is only present when there is audio (usually on news websites that host their own videos). when there is sound, there is a strange stuttering noise that disappears during the silent pauses.

here's a perfect example: [url]

the videos video at the top plays just fine. if you scroll down and watch the other video in the small box, you'll hear the stuttering. i have fedora 14 kde, adobe flash player 64 bit preview release 3 and rpm fusion codecs installed. the problem is also present in fedora 14 with gnome, same setup. the problematic videos play without the stuttering in ubuntu.

OpenSUSE :: Get Weird Flicker In Flash Videos

Oct 26, 2010

I've noticed a weird thing with flash:

1. When playing flash videos in firefox, they'll flicker with black screen flashing for a split second over the video(This continues throughout the video)

2. However, if I do either of the following, the flicker goes away (only while doing one of these actions):

a. Continually move the mouse over the video (i.e. move back and forth in a "mouseover")

b. Put the mouse over the scrubber circle (which shows time lapsed and allows dragging to change location in video) such that the "hand" cursor appears. Once the cursor changes back to a pointer, it flickers again. but as long as I move the mouse over the scrubber circle, it'll stop the flickering (even without moving the mouse anymore) until the circle passes beyond the cursor again.

I have the Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102 extension installed in Firefox. I also tested in Chrome that also had the flash plugin and I still had no sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio In Flash Videos?

Jun 11, 2010

I am having a little problem with my flash player, the video plays fine but I can't get any sound. The sound card works properly with any other application, such as Amarok, but not with flash videos and my hardware is mostly Intel witch is linux-friendly from what I know, so I guess that it isn't a driver problem. Therefore, I switched from windows to linux only a couple days ago, so it may be a newbie issue as well.

I'm using Kubuntu 10.04 64-bit with HDA Intel audio chip set with flash player If anyone have a solution/explanation,

Debian :: Totem Won't Play Flash Videos

Apr 3, 2010

when i try to play a flash video the visual works but not the audio and totem tells me i need the suitable codec which it says is gstreamer-bad and when i attempt to install it, it says that it conflicts with gstreamer-really-bad but if i remove gstreamer-really-bad and install gstreamer-bad totem gives me an internal data stream error instead and even visual won't work. so i ran totem--debug and this is the terminal output with gstreamer-bad when trying to play flash video.

** message: error: internal data stream error. gstflvdemux.c(52: gst_flv_demux_loop (): /play/decodebin0/flvdemux0: stream stopped, reason error

i also ran totem --debug with gstreamer-really-bad installed and this is the output then.

totem --debug
