Ubuntu :: Fullscreen Flash Crashes Firefox / Visual Effects Not Working

Jun 13, 2010

when I click fullscreen in BBC iPlayer or ..... or whatever, the whole browser crashes instantly, no warning. And secondly my visual effects aren't working. When I go into Appearance and try and change from 'None' to 'Normal', it says 'Searching for available drivers' for about 20 seconds, and then says 'Desktop effects could not be enabled'.Both visual effects and fullscreen flash worked fine until about lunchtime today, and I honestly can't think of anything I did that would've changed setting or messed something up, so I really don't know.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Firefox Crashes When Flash Used In Fullscreen Mode - After Upgrade To 10.04

Jun 1, 2010

i just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 from 9.10, and now i can't view any flash video in fullscreen mode (videos, atdhe, etc.). when i click on fullscreen firefox crashes instantly. everything was working fine in 9.10.

i looked around on the forums; i tried to install the flash-aid extension for firefox. it says that my architecture is 32bit, then reinstalls the flash plugin, but that doesn't help; fullscreen still crashes. i also tried to install the 64bit version from adobe's website, but that doesn't help.

i had a look at the mozilla website [url] i tried to preload the libgl.so.1 library as suggested there, but that doesn't help. i wanted to try to disable hardware acceleration in the flash player settings, but i can't even change the settings; when i right-click on settings, the adobe small preferences screen appears but i can't click on anything, nothing works.

that's all on ubuntu 10.04 with firefox 3.6.3 and flash player 10,0,45,2. i also installed the newer 10.1 flashplayer plugin from the adobe website, but firefox still crashes.

Ubuntu :: Fullscreen Flash Crashes When Try To Change Volume?

Nov 5, 2010

I just did a fresh install of ubuntu 10.10 after having been on windows again for a few years. It's not coming back as easily as I'd like.Anyways right after the install I noticed flash crashed when I tried to enter fullscreen. To fix this, I deselected hardware acceleration (per some other post on here, sorry can't remember to give credit).Now when I'm in full screen, it freezes the video if I try to change my volume level. Sound continues to play but the video doesn't move and I can't exit fullscreen or bring up the player bar at the bottom of the screen.I think this has more to do with the volume indicator coming up than the fact that the volume is changing i.e. anything that popped up like that would cause the problem.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Crashes When Try To Use Hulu In Fullscreen

May 21, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and, when using Hulu, if I try and enter Fullscreen Mode, Firefox crashes to the desktop. Is this a known bug? Is there a fix for it? Any idea what could be causing it? I'm using fglrx for my integrated ATI card, by the way, but the standard open-source drivers made video choppy, and I had the same problem with Hulu.

Ubuntu :: Visual Effects Preferences Button Not Working

May 4, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04. I added the simple-ccsm package through apt-get. I like the new option I now have under the Visual Effects tab in Appearance Preferences. I can now choose None, Normal, Extra, or Custom. The problem is when I click the "Preferences" button beside custom nothing happens. It should open simple-ccsm. In fact if I try to run simple-ccsm from the terminal I get this;

/usr/bin/simple-ccsm:40: DeprecationWarning: Use the new widget gtk.Tooltip
Tooltips = gtk.Tooltips()
/usr/bin/simple-ccsm:182: DeprecationWarning: Use the new widget gtk.Tooltip
Tooltips = gtk.Tooltips()
/usr/bin/simple-ccsm:545: DeprecationWarning: Use the new widget gtk.Tooltip
Tooltips.set_tip(widget, _(("Can't find the animation plugin.")))
/usr/bin/simple-ccsm:415: DeprecationWarning: Use the new widget gtk.Tooltip

The regular compizconfig-settings-manager works fine and I actually prefer it. So my question is; can I bind the "Preferences" button to open ccsm instead of simple-ccsm? If not, how can I fix the simple-ccsm package?

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 Multimedia :: IPlayer Fullscreen (flash Plugin) Opens Under Firefox Not On Top

Mar 17, 2010

Sometimes in BBC iPlayer - Bigscreen the fullscreen video does not open on top, and then none of the lirc remote control commands (irxevent) function, not even Escape (nor Alt-TAB, which would bring the fullscreen on top if I used the keyboard - but sitting in the TV couch I would prefer using the remote only).

This often happens on my SuSE 10.2 partition, especially when wanting to resume a video, but never happens on my Kubuntu 9.10 partition. Both are 32-bit using KDE 4.3.5 Firefox 3.5.8 and Adobe Flash 10,0,45,2.

How can I get the fullscreen on top??

Ubuntu :: Different Video Effects In KDE And Firefox Using Flash?

Apr 19, 2011

since some time I notice a real disturbing video effect: I use Firefox 4 and Adobe Flash 10 (current version). When opening a web page which contains a flash video this video keeps part of the screen on both (!) desktops. (see attached pictures) Closing or minimizing all programs the video window is invisible. The video window will appear each time a program - any program! - window does appear above the area where this video windows is placed. I open Kate or OpenOffice or any other program and video window will appear again - see pic #1.

No matter if the video was started or not, the effect does happen everytime. No matter if the FF tab or the entire browser was closed or not, the effect will stay until X-Server restart. Even if I switch to the second desktop, the effect will appear. For example I launched Virtualbox on the 2nd desktop, open a Win XP system - the entire desktop background is blue. I opened Chrome and the video window from desktop #1 appears within the Chrome window. (see pic 2) The effect will not appear into screendumps, so I used my smartphone cam for both pictures:

#1: after opening www.tagesschau.de I closed firefox and re-opened FF with another web page. You can see the video screen from tagessschau.de within the heise.de page.

#2: then I switched to desktop #2, run WinXP into a Virtualbox window and launched Chrome.

Nvidia Gforce 9800 GTX+
current Nvidia driver from nvidia.com
Kubuntu 10.10 amd64 and KDE4
all updates installed

As I do remember this effect happens since Flash 10. Unfortunately it is nearly unimpossible to use Internet without an installed Adobe Flash 10. If it would be possible I would remove Flash immidiately from any computer.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Firefox Crashes When Flash Is Involved

Jan 26, 2010

I don't know what happened, but this happened in openSuSE 11.2 as well. Now when I try to view any media that involves the flash plugin, FireFox crashes. I've reinstalled the flash-plugin multiple times. I've tried downgrading to FireFox 3, but 3.5 always remains. I installed some software last night, but it didn't conflict with anything on my system. Is there some form of bug with the new flash? Is there a functionality time-bomb, that kills itself after a while?

I saw that someone else was having issues with flash freezing FireFox.

Here is some system info:
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2GHz
Video - ATi 2400HD chipset (MSI RX2400Pro)
Audio - Ensoniq PCI card

Fedora :: Firefox Crashes During Flash Play Back

Jun 3, 2010

I'm within Firefox and start playing ..... movies Firefox crashes. Thats not the worst of it however; the process locks up the whole system and I have to reboot. I attempt the kill it with now luck. Killing the PPID doesn't help because it got to 1. I even looked a pstree to kill parent processes without any luck. I'm like WTF. Firefox crushes with the "ZL" in the line when running the ps command also. I'm going to uninstall Adobe flash and reinstall it to see if that helps at all. This is the only time I have every had this type of issue.

Software :: Flash On Firefox Runs Badly And Crashes?

Feb 16, 2010

I have yet to make flash run smoothly on Linux. I tried Chromium, Firefox, flash versions from 8 and up; it runs but makes firefox crash, chromium does not crash but it's all slow and breaky. Flash 9 runs and does not crash but has no sound. No version on any browser can run HD flashes, it just breaks up and runs like in 3 second interval frames.I have tried everything I've read and spent 3 months trying to watch the nfl.com unsuccessfully. Is flash working smoothly for anybody?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound Crashes Unexpectedly In Firefox Flash

May 2, 2010

flash version 10.0 r45 in firefox plays video, graphics, and sound just fine. however, while i'm playing a video on videos, or listening to pandora, the sound could unexpectedly crash. when this happens, sound doesn't just stop playing. it keeps playing but loops the sound every second or so - it's kind of strange to describe; the sentence, "hello, how are you?" could sound like "he-he-he-he ar-ar you-you-you". has anyone experienced this? i say it happens 'unexpectedly' because i can't replicate the crash on demand, but it happens in every firefox session. it seems that it does not matter what i'm doing - i've tried crashing it by making a flash video full screen and exiting continuously etc. because sometimes it happens when i'm going to full screen or changing tabs.

however, most of the time it happens when i'm not even touching the computer - i'm not sure if some background process can cause flash's buffer to overflow, or whatever. other times, it doesn't even need me to play anything for it to crash the sound in flash - it could loop sound from the first time i tried playing it in flash in that ff session. even when i exit firefox or pause the sound it takes a few second for the loops to stop. however, when i restart firefox the sound is fine until it crashes again and i have to restart, again! i tried removing libflashsupport as i read in other threads that it causes sound issues - no luck there. i uninstalled, installed and all that jazz. tried strace - doesn't report any flash errors for some reason, or as far as i can understand.

i also installed the flash debugger for use with the firebug extension, flashbug addon in firefox, but i'm not getting anything there either - i think it can't locate the flash debugger, although it lists the right version. i haven't had this problem with chromium yet, but i mostly use it when flash sound in firefox crashed and i don't want to reload ff; i think they use the same 'libflashplayer.so'? also, just to clarify, sound from the mplayer plugin works fine, and when the sound crashes in flash it does not cause ff to crash and quit. firefox continues to run normally but when i play sound in flash it starts looping. i've had sound problems in the past and i'm thinking there is something i messed up in the packages i have installed. i uninstalled pulseaudio because it was the only way i could find to get my skype working. how would i know if there are conflicting elements?

here's what i get from 'lsof | grep snd':
firefox 956 angelos mem chr 116,4 3850 /dev/snd/pcmc0d0p
firefox 956 angelos 120r chr 116,2 0t0 3751 /dev/snd/timer
firefox 956 angelos 122u chr 116,4 0t0 3850 /dev/snd/pcmc0d0p
firefox 956 angelos 123u chr 116,8 0t0 3874 /dev/snd/controlc0
keytouchd 4518 angelos 4u chr 116,8 0t0 3874 /dev/snd/controlc0
knotify4 4683 angelos 12u chr 116,8 0t0 3874 /dev/snd/controlc0
kmix 4690 angelos 10u chr 116,8 0t0 3874 /dev/snd/controlc0
keytouchd 8563 angelos 4u chr 116,8 0t0 3874 /dev/snd/controlc0

it seems to me like there should be a conflict between all those using the same sound control? however, why would it just happen unexpectedly? also, is there a way that i could dissociate sound from firefox without having to reload a whole session with many tabs?

Ubuntu :: Slowdown With Visual Effects

Jan 11, 2010

I am having a bad slowdown issue when I enable Visual Effects with the Ati proprietary drivers that come with the installation. Everything runs very slow maximizing and minimizing take about 3-5 seconds per click and the effects get all choppy and don't look right like they did on my x1950 video card. I have tried downloading the current drivers from the ATI site but they don't seem to be initialising correctly after I perform the install.

I also know that the graphics card is not the culprit as it works perfectly fine on my Windows 7 64 bit install. There is no reason that my video card cannot handle the Visual Effects as it is a 1GB 4890 should have more than enough horsepower.

My machine is:

AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition
8 GB G. Skill 1600 DDR3 Memory
1 TB Western Digital Caviar hard drive
1 GB 4890 Graphics Card ATI.

Ubuntu :: Visual Effects Won't Save?

Mar 26, 2010

Just installed an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro graphics card (128 Meg). Linux just seemed to work fine with it - I didn't need to install any extra drivers or anything.

Before, when I was using onboard graphics, if I tried to choose "normal" or "extra" visual effects, it told me that I didn't have sufficient hardware. Now, since installing the card, it first said "installing drivers" then a message came up saying "do you want to keep these settings .... respond in 30 secs etc...

I chose yes to keep settings but when I close "Appearance preferences" it does not retain my settings and no visual effects are activated. If I open up Visual effects again the check box next to "none" is ticked.

I looked around and there seem to be drivers available direct from ATI but are these newer than those available already on Ubuntu 9.10? It is very confusing. It seems that I have might have to uninstall existing drivers before I can install new ones and I am reluctant to do that because - at the moment, apart from visual effects, everything works And would doing this even help anyway?

In fact has anyone succeeded in getting a Radeon 9000 series card to show visual effects in Ubuntu 9.10 or should I stop wasting time and assume that it is not up to the job? I can live without visual effects (although it would be nice)

Ubuntu :: Visual Effects Don't Retain.

Aug 30, 2010

My Acer laptop Travelmate 290 was fine till yesterday (ie) before full update.No Error.I have the recent Ubuntu. Later When I boot I can't find my cursor but I could randomly see pop up notification of Application----Places--- System could be read.When I open any folder its fixed to top of the screen and no button for minimise,max and close.When I dig thro all the forums and solved by reinstalling metacity and change the setting of Appearance-Visual Effects to Normal.When I set to Normal it scans for the driver and asking me to confirm the setting.Once confirmed all the above problems solved but it don't reatain it,it is jump back to none. I need to do this on every boot.Is any way to avoid this? Is anyway to clean all the compiz files and setting from the PC?I vaguely remember it may be because of uninstall of compiz.
