youtube and the Blueman group [solved-partly]
« on: May 27, 2013, 02:50:16 pm »
at least thats how it looks like, when I'm trying to watch anything on youtube with lmce. Is there something I can do to get all colors in youtube? Right now everything looks completely blueish.

That's a known problem caused by Adobe producing a not so good working flash plugin.

apt-get install --reinstall lmce-hulu-player

might fix the issue by installing an older version of the flash plugin.

found this Little Nugget on wiki.ubuntuusers.de
Quote
sudo mkdir /etc/adobe
sudo sh -c "echo 'EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1\nOverrideGPUValidation=true' > /etc/adobe/mms.cfg"
and it helped
okay...the blue tint is gone, but now flashplayer crashes a lot....not really an improvement

yeah, I tried the hulu-reinstall, but as far as I could tell, it didn't install a different flashplayer...and everything remained blue.

I have this same problem and fixed it with:

Code: [Select]
cd /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer || cd /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/
sudo perl -pi.bak -e 's/libvdpau/lixvdpau/g' libflashplayer.so

Works well for me
