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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fullscreen Flash Videos Appearing BEHIND The Browser

Apr 3, 2011

Ubuntu 64-bit

Every once in a while, clicking the fullscreen icon on a Flash video will result in the video playback overlay appearing behind the actual browser requiring the browser to be minimised to see the video. Sometimes this will minamise both and I can't watch it at all. Reproducible with this video [URL]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Anything - Music - Flash - Videos - Games - 'muffled' - Poor Sound Quality

Apr 7, 2010

I just got my hands on an MSI E7235-295US and slapped Ubuntu 9.10 on it. So far everything's worked great, but I am beginning to get a bit concerned about my sound quality. The laptop itself has 5 speakers + subwoofer so I should be getting 5.1 sound, if I understand things correctly (the newegg link should provide more details) and when I play anything (music, flash, videos, games, etc...) the sound comes out 'muffled'. Almost as if it is in a concert hall, maybe. I initially wondered if the problem is related to the 5 speakers and if the sound is initially only setup for two. If that is the case, nothing I've done has seemed to made any real difference. I've tried changing the master/pci channels, but it only hides it a little, and doesn't solve the problem.

This seemed to be on the right track, but the laptop is still really new and not listed in the alsa file.

Some info:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 7220

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.

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??

Debian Multimedia :: Firefox HTML5 Stuck At 360p

Aug 22, 2015

YouTube now automatically serves html5 content if it detects you are using firefox version 40 or above. Unfortunately as a result, all youtube videos are now served to me at 360p resolution, and there is no way to change that on the youtube web page.

Before upgrading firefox, I could watch hd videos using flash. The ability to switch to html5 was also available on [URL] .... But with the later version of firefox, the option to switch back to using flash is no longer there on that page.

When I could view both flash and html5 videos (with the older firefox), I found that html5 played back very poorly. flash, despite being a known resource hog, actually played back better (with no h/w acceleration of flash in linux, I resigned myself to expect to use faster PCs to run flash hd at full screen). Which is a great pity, as we all know flash is disappearing, but it appears I now have an even bigger issue with html5. Where's the hd video?

So how can I get a better html5 experience? My machine is an i3 with GTS250 nVidia running Stretch.

The problem of only getting 360p resolution is probably a bug in firefox. Once I can get hd, I am then uncertain if firefox could handle it.

The advice of setting 'media.mediasource.enabled' in about:config to true to get higher resolutions did not work for me.

When I do that, the [URL] .... says I have:

HTMLVideoElement, WebM VP8 and Media source Extensions support, and
H.264, MSE & H.264 and MSE & WebM VP9 unsupported.

I have hardware acceleration enabled in firefox, and have the OpenH264 Video Codec (Cisco) plugin installed.

Some more info here: [URL] ....

I could switch back to using flash by using a user-agent switcher to fool youtube I have an older firefox, but that is a poor solution.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Splitting Videos And Maintaining Quality?

Feb 24, 2010

I am trying to use ffmpeg to split a number of videos of different types (WMV, MPG, AVI). I do not want to change anything else, just split them into smaller chunks. The video is split, but the quality of the output file is terrible. I would describe it as "blocky" (I think the correct term is "pixelated"). When I make the player (KMPlayer) much smaller the problem naturally goes away.

The command I am using:

ffmpeg -i original_vid.wmv -ss 00:00:00 -t 00:05:00 first_vid.wmv

The output:

FFmpeg version SVN-r19352-4:0.5+svn20090706-2ubuntu2, Copyright (c) 2000-2009 Fabrice Bellard, et al.
configuration: --extra-version=4:0.5+svn20090706-2ubuntu2 --prefix=/usr --enable-avfilter --enable-avfilter-lavf --enable-vdpau --enable-bzlib --enable-libgsm --enable-libschroedinger --enable-libspeex --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis


"Seems stream 0 codec frame rate differs from container frame rate: 1000.00 (1000/1) -> 25.00 (25/1)

Seems to mean something, but I couldn't find anything saying that this is the problem or what O should do to correct it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Re-encode Old Videos With Open Codec Without Quality Loss?

May 24, 2010

I have a lot of old video footage around that, I am ashamed to say, I encoded with heavily proprietary codecs like DivX and such during the dark ages (aka. the Windows Times).

Now, I would like to redeem myself from the mistakes of my past by re-encoding everything into open formats.
Since those videos are often not of the best quality (poor camera, poor codecs, poor knowledge), I do not want to loose more quality in the process.

So, to avoid any more mistakes in the future, I would be glad if someone could answer me some of the following questions:
1. Is it even possible to re-encode those movies into something like x264/vp8/theora without loosing any more quality?
2. What tools should I use for that? Command line is actually preferred.
3. What would be the most desirable format to have? I'm thinking about x264 in Martroska with ogg Auto. Is there anything better suited?

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.

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 channel4.com/4od 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 Exits Fullscreen Every 10 Minutes / Fix This?

Jul 6, 2010

I am using lucid and the adobe-flashplugin 10 package. When I watch programmes in fullscreen on the BBC iPlayer or Channel4-on-demand player it works fine but switches back to windowed mode after about 5 or 10 minutes. I put it back into fullscreen and the same thing happens after the same sort of time. I read this thread about flash switching out of fullscreen when the volume is adjusted, but I'm not adjusting the volume...how can I fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Flash Is Slower When Switched To Fullscreen

Jun 13, 2011

I put ubuntu on an old 3 ghz p4 and I went on to ....., the video was choppy especially when I switched to fullscreen. I have heard that flash is slower in linux, but here's the thing I have an old live cd for a distro called artistx, I think I burned in 2008, and I remember watching flash videos fine on it. I put it in the pc just to test it and then after it booted I went to ..... and watched the same video in 480p and fullscreen and it played back smoothly. Has flash gotten slower or is it ubuntu?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Freezes Audio Continues In Flash Fullscreen?

Jan 28, 2010

n an up-to-date kubuntu karmic I experience the following:watching a flash video with adobeflash in firefox in fullscreen mode, randomly the picture freezes while the audio continues. The video unfreezes when I move the mouse, the video then fastforwards to the actual replay position. Video card is nvidia geforce fx5200 on proprietary driver, I have the desktop effects enabled. Any idea what this is about? I discovered the effects causing wine windows to break (no window contents, no foreground, no reaction on mouse) when changing the desktops or minimizing them. Seems like there are some bugs in the window manager / decorator...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Poor Sound In Fullscreen Flash Video Lenovo T60?

Jan 12, 2011

Sound is fine in flash video, but gets garbled in fullscreen.

Another problem I'm having is that when I turn the volume past 60% using the sound applet on the panel, it gets very distorted. If I open sound preferences, I notice it is in the "amplified" zone at this point, so I have to keep it in the "unamplified" zone, but then it's not loud enough.

Here is my soundcard info:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio C
ontroller (rev 02)
Subsystem: Lenovo ThinkPad T60/R60 series

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Black Bars Flash Across Screen In Fullscreen Video?

Jul 31, 2011

i've got a mythbuntu 10.10 box connected to my tv; sometimes i want to use it to watch internet tv. owever, when i try to resize videos to full-screen, sometimes black bars intermittently flash across the entire screen. this does not happen when the video is in a window or on the web page, only when going into full-screen mode. unfortunately, on some of these sites, even the "large" in-page video selection is still too small to be comfortably watched from the couch.

i'd suspect it's something with flash, but a similar thing happens when i'm using skype inside a windows xp on vmware. black bars flashing across when in "full-screen" but just fine when zoomed up inside a window. and i don't think vmware video output is flash-based. so it may be something else entirely.

also, this doesn't happen on all internet video - i've only had it happen on video from nbc.com and nfl.com (i haven't really had the opportunity or reason to try many other sites yet), and it was only a little noticeable from the nfl.com but nearly unwatchable from nbc. yet if i go to videos, i have no trouble getting any of their videos running full-screen.

i have an integrated geforce 8200 graphics, and i'm running the nvidia proprietary drivers version 256. i'm not running 260 since its vdpau capability is questionable, and i need that for mythtv. i have a 64-bit system.

does anyone have any ideas regarding this? the fact that i'm getting consistently good results from videos yet consistently bad ones from the tv networks makes me wonder if it's something i'm even going to be able to fix.
