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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: BBC Flash Video Freezes Firefox

Feb 15, 2010

i've noticed a problem this morning when watching bbc flash videos on firefox (3.6). whilst the video is playing, firefox is fine and new tabs can be opened. but once you close the tab or window where the video was, firefox freezes and has to force quit. other flash video sites like videos, cnn, sky news, guardian and flash games seem okay and firefox doesn't freeze. bbc videos seem okay on firefox on winxp too. the bbc problem occurs on news video and on iplayer vids.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Constant Mini-freezes In Audio/video In Maverick?

Dec 18, 2010

I've been goign nuts trying to find the source of this niggling problem I've had since upgrading to Maverick. Whenever I'm watching anything I will get these short freezes of about half a second before he file continues playing. It will happen on average 3-4 times per hour on a video file.

For MP3 playback it's even worse, I'll get a stutter every couple of minutes, sometimes several in the same song. I reformatted completely and installed Maverick from scratch. For about a day I thought I had it sorted but then it started happening again.

I checked dmesg and there are a number of worrying lines like this:


[40616.032093] ata1.00: failed command: WRITE DMA
[40616.032108] ata1.00: cmd ca/00:20:df:b6:82/00:00:00:00:00/e0 tag 0 dma 16384 out
[40616.032111] res 40/00:00:00:4f:c2/00:00:00:00:00/10 Emask 0x24 (host bus error)
[40616.032118] ata1.00: status: { DRDY }


The thing is that this problem occurs on all three of my hard drives (2 SATA, one IDE) so it's extremely unlikely all three have become damaged on the day I updated. Could this be a kernel problem of some sort? On an unrelated note all but one of my USB ports fails to recognise any portable music players.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Flash Halts / Freezes On Video Websites - Fix It?

Jun 13, 2011

I have installed Kubuntu Natty on a Toshiba laptop with an Intel Card on i386. Sites with flash video content (....., vimeo and the BBC's iplayer site) however don't work as expected: the video track stops while the sound carries on. Pressing the right mouse button in the video player screen makes the video continue immediately, but this is not the expected behaviour! I have also tried with Windows, and it works fine, so it is not a network problem. Audio seems to work fine. I'm attaching the output from lspci and that of Xorg.0.log that appears relevant to the intel driver. code...

Ubuntu :: Random System Freezes While Watching Video (Fullscreen)

Jun 30, 2010

My system just freezes randomly. It happens about once a day, which is really often imho. It usually happens when I'm watching a video in fullscreen and it suddenly stops. I can't alt-tab or escape out of fullscreen, my mouse doesn't work and the keyboard is unresponsive. I'm forced to restart by pressing my computer's power button. This happens in both vlc and kmplayer and it also happened a few times when i was not watching a video. I was just on firefox, browsing the internet.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio Cuts Off In Online Flash Video

Aug 17, 2010

This happens nearly anytime I watch any relatively lengthy flash video on ..... or other online flash players. I watch the video, and the audio is fine for a few seconds, but then the audio cuts off as the video continues to play. Sometimes, when I move the scrollbar of the screen/pause and replay the movie, it starts back up again for a few seconds then shuts off or plays the audio I just heard.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Continues To Drop Out Of Flash In Firefox

May 14, 2010

Sound continues to drop out of flash in firefox. Reinstalling flash will bring it back, but it will drop out next browser session. All audio works in other applications. Skype, Last.fm, Rhythmbox, Amarok, Movie Player, etc. Even downloaded swf files will play sound. It's just in firefox, from what I can see so far. I don't know if Steve Jobs flying overhead in a black helicopter has anything to do with it, but perhaps.

Fedora :: Fullscreen Flash Video Sent Behind Windows Under Compiz

Feb 23, 2010

When I play a fullscreen flash video, it works fine the first time I open it, and then after that if I close it and open it again it appears, behind all my other windows, including firefox, gnome-panel, and glx-dock. This only happens under compiz - metacity is fine. This is all because I let my little brother play with compiz settings. I don't know if Linux is ready for the home user, but it certainly isn't ready for my brother.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Freezes On Fullscreen / Maximized Windows?

Nov 1, 2010

VLC which didn't exist before (possibly due to some updates) When viewing a video file (say an .avi file so it has nothing to do with flash)in maximized windows or full screen, playback becomes very slow and sometimes freezes momentarily (with the screen turning grey) On the other hand, if I open the same file in a small screen and then strech it out to the size of a maximized windows everything is fine. I don't notice anything extraordinary in terms of cpu or memory usage (from running top in the terminal) when this happens.

This problem only happens with VLC, Banshee has no problem playing these same files in full screen. I use Compiz, disabling Compiz stops VLC from freezing but it still seems a bit sluggish in full screen. I used to be able to play videos with VLC in full screen AND with Compiz on.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04. VLC is working fine in 10.10 on the same machine.

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 :: Fullscreen Video Won't Work?

I'm using ubuntu 11.04 with Unity 2d as my hardware is too old to run the original one. I was previously using Lubuntu but after a slight RAM upgrade decided to use Ubuntu. Now I can't watch full screen video's online which is not the problem as it's always been like this with every distro I've used but now I can't even watch full screen videos in VLC, totem or any other media player for that matter, it'll either lag or completely freeze my system and this worked in Lubuntu fine
