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.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Box - Getting Flicker While Viewing Flash Contents?

Apr 27, 2010

Anyone using flash with blogtv? I've got a Ubuntu 9.10 box with a nvidia 9400gt card running flash and have run into some weirdness. I get alot of flicker when viewing flash content on sites like blogTV. Also, cannot get my webcam going in blogtv. Webcam is a webcam pro 9000 and works flawless. The problem is adobe flash. I have researched and know that there are problems with flash and linux but whats interesting is that I also run a fedora 11 box and blogtv works fine. The video card in the fedora box is a nvidia 8400 and running flash.

On the Ubuntu box when you go to broadcast you get the flash permissions (allow blogtv permissions on camera) but the buttons do not work. It pretty much locks up in the flash widow only. Also, Viewing content on the site has a lot of flicker. Other sites do not have this flicker. Seems strange that my fedora box works with no problems but the Ubuntu box doesnt. Today Im going to try the beta flash ( from adobe version and see what that produces.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Flash Videos?

Nov 27, 2010

After a fresh installation of 11.3 KDE, I followed the Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide and I also used the mmcheck to follow every advice and install packages that were recommended.I also spent a few evening this week digging everywhere I could to get sound when playing videos in Firefox without any success. 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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Flash Working Videos But No Audio

Mar 6, 2011

I've been playing around with the latest RC of 11.4. Overall, it works great, but just have 1 issue. No flash videos have audio. Video works just fine. I've tried installing both the flash-player package so that it loads the official 32-bit plugin through ndiswrapper, and tried downloading the Adobe Square 64-bit plugin and installing it. Doesn't make a difference, either way I have working video but not audio. Audio itself on the laptop works with no issues, I listen to Amarok all the time on it. Laptop in question is a Dell Latitude E5500. I've also had Debian Wheezy and Kubuntu 10.10 on here, both had no issues.

Ubuntu :: Videos Flicker When Ubuntu Visual Effects Enabled / Fix For This?

Dec 11, 2008

Linux newbie here, although I am quickly falling in love.

When playing videos (in Totem 2.24), they constantly flicker. I find that I can fix the problem by disabling Ubuntu's visual effects, after which videos play fine. However I'd rather not have to do that. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

OpenSUSE :: Frequent Crashes On Browsers - Flash Videos Hangs

Mar 19, 2010

I am experiencing frequent crashes for my browsers (FireFox, Opera, Konquerer). It doesn't seem to be related to the amount of tabs I have open, sometimes it will crash on 1 tab, and sometimes it is fine to have 20 tabs up. In addition to this, some flash videos hang after 3 secs.

Debian Multimedia :: Flash Audio Has Weird Beeping Noise After Update?

May 15, 2011

Here's what I updated yesterday The following NEW packages will be installed:libboost-program-options1.46.1{a} python-chardet{a} python-debian{a}


Whenever I play a flash object that has sound, there is this repetitive beeping noise audible over the audio track. I've tried this on different videos and different sites, always with the same result. Whenever I play a multimedia file in Iceweasel, for example [URL]... plodes.ogv , the sound is normal, as is the sound for any multimedia file that I play in MPlayer. So, I am convinced it is a flash issue. What I don't get is why this just started happening for no apparent reason.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 - Getting Periodic Flicker On The Display

Mar 16, 2011

I recently upgraded my desktop to 11.4 and kde 4.6.1 My desktop has : VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 [Radeon X1200 Series] This is legacy ATI stuff, radeon driver loaded (as was in 11.3) and seems to be operating. I am getting a somewhat periodic (5 secs or so) flicker on the display, fast enough to be annoying but not fast enough to really affect anything.

I have seen several threads about short freezes, but realize that flicker and freeze might be a matter of speed and memory, etc. I tried suspending Desktop Effects, that may have reduced the frequency of the flicker but did not eliminate.

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.

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
