Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 1:23 AM
I see various spots on the video (see attachment). Same video works fine on Firefox. Is it a known issue? This spots appear on any video that I try to play on Youtube. Please find the attachment.
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 1:30 AM
Hi guys,

Turned out that installing nspluginwrapper solved the issue. Thank you for your time.

I am using Fedora 17. Just in case somebody stumbles upon this post of mine, please refer http://goo.gl/k8hbG. Helped me; might help you too. :)

Regards,
Dharmit Shah

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 1:59 AM
Well it's been just 20 minutes since I posted that problem has got resolved. But it's back. Does anyone face the same issue or know of any way to resolve this issue? Opening Firefox every time to watch youtube videos is becoming tedious. Plus this happens only with youtube. Other video sites work just fine. The attachment that I pasted earlier applies for this issue.
Re: Youtube Video Problem caver_tim 7/10/12 2:05 AM
never seen anything like that.
You've not got a YouTube downloader type extension installed have you?
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 6:13 AM
Nope I don't have it. Below is the list of extensions that I have installed :

1) Flashblock
2) ESPN F1
3) AdBLock
4) Google Dictionary
5) QuickNote
6) Scracthpad
7) StayFocused
8) Turn Off the Lights

Of this extensions, Flashblock and Turn of the Lights are the only ones that are related to Video sites. However, all other sites work fine. It's only Youtube that I am unable to enjoy.

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 6:30 AM
Update : In spite of turning off all the extensions, I am seeing this in every youtube video.
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 7:20 AM
Another Observation :

I was able to see this video without any disturbance when it was embedded with a post on Facebook. But when I chose to watch it on Youtube itself, I started seeing the problem. Please check the screenshots.

Re: Youtube Video Problem caver_tim 7/10/12 7:36 AM
Do the yellow specks move? Is it some kind of confetti or ticker tape simulation?
Can you start an incognito window and run a YouTube video from there?
Re: Youtube Video Problem david.king 7/10/12 8:24 AM
Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration by right clicking on the video > Settings > Uncheck the box next to Enable hardware acceleration.
Re: Youtube Video Problem SirLaughsAlot 7/10/12 9:13 AM
What Chrome version are you using? Go to wrench -> About Google Chrome.
Re: Youtube Video Problem MedLP 7/10/12 12:59 PM
It is a happening something similar to me as well... Not the yellow sparks but it is running like slow connections issues. When I open IE or FireFox it plays well. Other computers here at my apartment are running nice but mine is not (Google Chrome).
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 1:55 PM
Yes those specks move. I see them even in the incognito mode. I am not sure what it is. But I don't see it on the Advertisements. I see them only on the actual video.
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 1:56 PM
After your update, I disabled the hardware acceleration. No change. Still see this creepy thing. :(
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 1:57 PM
Google Chrome Version 20.0.1132.47
Re: Youtube Video Problem SirLaughsAlot 7/10/12 2:00 PM
Dharmit - what Chrome version are you on? If it's a Chrome issue, the developers can't do anything without knowing what version it is.
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/10/12 2:17 PM
SirLaughsAlot : I mentioned the version in my previous update. It's "Version 20.0.1132.47". I forgot to mention that in my description.
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/12/12 10:03 AM
I uninstalled Chrome and removed all the configuration files and also removed contents from ~/.cache directory. Still the issue persists. Also I updated the version of Chrome. Not exactly sure why this is happening. :(

Youtube vids embedded in sites like Metacafe.com work fine. But when I try to watch the same video on Youtube, I get this yellow stuff which looks like worms. ;)

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/13/12 1:17 AM
Weird. Now I see this worms at times and at times it works fine. But most of the time the disturbance persists.
Re: Youtube Video Problem vasa1 7/13/12 6:04 AM
Do see it with either Flash plug-in? You should be have two: the Pepper one (11.3~) and another (11.2~). Just keep one enabled in chrome://plugins and see which gives you the problem. (The non-Pepper one is the one Firefox uses.)

What exactly did you do? Assuming you have something like  /home/Dharmit/.config/google-chrome/Default, after ensuring that no Chrome process is running, you can just change Default to Default_bak and restart Chrome.

The fact that embeds work is good because it means there's nothing basically wrong with your kit.
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/13/12 7:22 AM
Well I am not able to see two plugins. I see only one plugin for Flash. Also I did the mv command as you suggested and restarted Chrome. Still see this creepy thing on each video I play on Youtube. How come the ads work fine but the actual video don't? :\

But, in your first post you said you didn't have a problem with Firefox. Where is the plug-in that Firefox uses? Chrome should be able to see that and use that if Pepper Flash is disabled. It would not be a solution but a workaround.

I'm on Ubuntu but I see two Flash plug-ins: 
Name:Shockwave Flash
Description:Shockwave Flash 11.3 r31
Version:11.3.31.115
Location:/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so

and
Name:Shockwave Flash
Version:11.2 r202
Location:/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
Type:NPAPI

 Don't you have something similar?

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/13/12 10:49 AM

There's no other entry for Flash plugin as you mentioned.

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/13/12 10:50 AM
Probably I am missing something here. I have installed adobe flash plugin with yum and Chrome also comes with default Flash player installed. Probably I am missing something.

And you also said in your first post that Firefox works for Flash. I'm asking again: if that is correct, Chrome should be able to use that plug-in so why isn't it?

Can you put up your complete
about:version

information? 
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/14/12 12:17 AM
I have finally started seeing two plugins and a separate Enable/Disable option for both. They are :


Name:        Shockwave Flash
Description:        Shockwave Flash 11.3 r31
Version:        11.3.31.115
Location:        /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so


Name:        Shockwave Flash
Version:        11.2 r202
Location:        /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so

I tried using both of them individually and together as well. But I can see the disturbance come what may. And the output that was asked for is :

Re: Youtube Video Problem Daviz 7/14/12 1:50 AM
I also see the yellow "dots" in chrome. Firefox shows the same vid nicely. Using Ubuntu 12.04 32bit and Chrome with only one extension: "push to kindle".
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dhemios 7/16/12 4:22 AM
I am also having this issue on my videos. It also happens only on chrome, Version 20.0.1132.57, and my system is also Ubuntu 12.04 32bits. I don't know what other information I could give, but ask away.

Also, I can say this issue started yesterday, after I updated and restarted my system. Maybe some update caused this?

Re: Youtube Video Problem Toni (Googler) 7/16/12 2:35 PM
@Dharmit Shah, Daviz, Dhemios - Can you type about:flash into your address bar, and on the page that appears, copy the first handful of lines right before it says "Crash data" and paste it here? 

As FYI, the default Flash player that is used on Linux for Chrome 20+ is Pepper Flash. There are some known issues with it listed on our help center article as Craig provided. 
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dharmit 7/16/12 10:29 PM
Toni,

Clearing the Browsing Data from the start of time has helped me sort this issue for now. It's probably just a workaround. The output of about:flash that you asked for is :

Google Chrome        20.0.1132.57 ()
OS        Linux
Flash plugin        11.2 r202 /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so (not used)

ATM, the flash player from the location /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
is being used.

Re: Youtube Video Problem CrypticScripture 7/20/12 10:11 AM
I used to have the same problem on my Chrome in Ubuntu 12.04. Firefox and Chromium worked perfectly. All youtube videos on Chrome were seen with yellow/red grains as seen in OP. Chrome had 2 versions of flash - libpepflashplayer.so and libflashplayer.so (not used).

After going through this thread, I understood the problem was with PepperFlash. I have disabled it now and the problem has disappeared. So thanks.

Re: Youtube Video Problem ianll 7/22/12 5:42 AM
I use Fedora 17 and this problem began with a recent update - I can't remember when exactly.

Disabling the built-in Chrome plugin fixed the problem for me. I'm now relying on the same one Firefox uses. It's a little disappointing that Google released this buggy plugin.

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dhemios 7/22/12 4:01 PM
Thank you all for the help. I've also solved the issue by disabling PepperFlash.

If you're still interested, those lines from about:flash were the same as Dharmit pasted and described.

Re: Youtube Video Problem divreg 7/25/12 3:03 PM
Fedora 17 x64 - Google Chrome Stable 20.0.1132.57

Faced the same problem.  Disabled Pepper 11.3.31.115; left flash-plugin 11.2 r202 enabled.

Problem went away.  

Re: Youtube Video Problem gabrielh 7/31/12 12:35 PM

Re: Youtube Video Problem Yudle Joza 12/1/12 7:32 AM
Hey guys i seem to have SOLVED this problem

I noticed if I watch the same video in "incognito" mode it doesn't have the dots ... so I figured it has something to do with my youtube account login or the youtube cookies:

- i signed out of my youtube account ... dot/grains were still there
- i removed the cookies associated with youtube.com, restarted the browser, logged in to my youtube account and now the dots are gone

hope it helps

(i didn't remove/disable any flash plugins, my about:plugins page only showed one flash plugin and one VLC plugin ... I'm using chromium)

Re: Youtube Video Problem Mohammad Samani 1/13/13 9:05 AM
Disabling PepperFlash solves the problem, but then full-screen videos have a bunch of problems there. PepperFlash really works better except for the yellow dots that showed up for me yesterday and they don't want to go away. I see them in the Incognito mode too.

Was there an update that broke PepperFlash? Is there anyway to go back one version?

Re: Youtube Video Problem Jeremy Egner 1/14/13 3:46 PM
I just encountered this problem as well after a recent Chromium update.

Chromium        24.0.1312.52 ()
OS        Linux
Flash plugin        11.2 r202 /opt/Adobe/flash-player/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so


Deleting cookies fixed the problem for now. I also noticed that deleting the cookies caused me to leave the http://www.youtube.com/html5 trial, as well as the right click options for the offending videos had changed. Using different codec/player/protocol/otherthingidontknowanythingabout?

Re: Youtube Video Problem graphitegb 1/14/13 10:37 PM
Its nothing to do with flash its Chromes HTML5 player.
Drag a MP4 from your HDD in to Chrome and you get exactly the same effect.
Its a bug in the player plain and Simple.
Using Different version of Flash player causes Youtube to disable HTML 5 and plays again in flash but move to another site that uses HTML5 and it will return...
The bug is present in all versions of chrome for linux even up to version 26(pic 13) .
Chromium 23 is built for linux and tested better but has Other bugs.
Its HTML5 player is fine... (Pic 14)  

 

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dave GR 1/16/13 9:05 AM
This bug popped up after recent updates to Ubuntu. Using Chromium is not a solution. Does any one have an actual solution?
Re: Youtube Video Problem Andreas Rüther 1/16/13 10:32 AM
Got the same Problem here while watching flash or HTML 5 video. Only chrome shows this picture failures. In Firefox the videos are ok.

Failure comes up after update to chrome 24.

There seems to be no way to log for debugging.

Re: Youtube Video Problem vasa1 1/16/13 9:30 PM
+Dave GR, this problem had surfaced around the time of Chrome 20. The first poster in this topic, dharmit, was using Fedora, IIRC. The problem, or at least complaints, dried up after a while only to resurface now.

My take is that it isn't Ubuntu-specific. (It may be Linux-specific because I've not seen complaints from Windows users.)

Also, not all users are seeing this. My Ubuntu is fully updated as is my Chrome and I don't see the problem. I don't use Chromium.

My suspicion is that it is some hardware/graphics issue linked to Pepper Flash but troubleshooting is difficult because the people complaining are not that numerous and, mostly, the complainants don't know what information to provide to help troubleshoot.

It also seems to be specific to YouTube. I searched crbug.com to see if there's an extant bug but couldn't find one.

Does anyone know if a bug has been filed?
Re: Youtube Video Problem graphitegb 1/17/13 2:15 AM
It has been reported MULTI TIMES after each new version of chrome comes out with this broken player.
Because its a linux based problem only, with Chrome only normaly and not chromium which has a seperate codec extension for its HTML5 player on most Linux ditros. It is ignored untill alot later on were it will be randomly fixed in a sub .00001 update... But it takes them Months not days to issue a fix...

Its The video player and how the browser handles it video stream, The pictures above are NOT running flash.
When you RIGHT right click the youtube video IT tells you the Media player in use as HTML5.
NO flash running but still get the same effect... in the attached picture no 16... Again no flash video HTML5 only...


Re: Youtube Video Problem Mohammad Samani 1/17/13 9:02 PM
For me, the commercials before the actual video look fine, even though they are both displayed by Flash!
Re: Youtube Video Problem Mohd Nazreen Abdul Rahman 1/18/13 7:38 AM

I also experience this problems,

Only happen on Chrome, my firefox run nicely.

Re: Youtube Video Problem vasa1 1/18/13 7:00 PM

Re: Youtube Video Problem Deven Parrish 1/21/13 2:17 PM
Same issue here. Running Ubuntu 12.04 and Chrome 24.0.1312.52

This just started happening less than a week ago, only in Chrome, only on YouTube, and the ads play flawlessly. Video playback is using HTML 5.

Re: Youtube Video Problem Jonathan McNally 1/22/13 7:14 PM
I get the same as Mohammad Samani, the yellow dots in youtube and iPlayer but the adverts are normal. It's the same whether it's full screen or small. ...someone send it's to do with the pepper plug-in?

Please also post the details from your chrome://gpu page on the public issue tracker
Re: Youtube Video Problem Stephen Daniels 1/30/13 3:32 PM
Just thought I'd mention that I'm having this problem too.  I installed Ubuntu for the first time yesterday (version 12.10) and installed the latest stable build of Chrome today, so everything is extremely fresh.  I don't really know much about Linux yet though so I can't really give any technical details.  I'm using a Toshiba laptop that's about 3 or 4 years old if that matters.

Won't fix it. Its nothing to do with flash its the GPU drivers bug as the Google staff listed.
 As soon as you go on a HTML5 web site. the same fault will show up Graphics drivers are not compositing the video correctly.
If you have an application launcher you need to enable the blacklisting of the graphics drivers again..
On KDE its easy.
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U --blacklist-accelerated-compositing = for chrome
Or
/usr/bin/chromium-browser %U --blacklist-accelerated-compositing for chromium.
Then no matter which version from 24 stable - 26 unstable release they will be gone on both HTML5 or Flash.  

Re: Youtube Video Problem hunkirdowne 2/13/13 4:01 PM
Before I discovered this thread I posted my stuff here:
http://productforums.google.com/d/topic/chrome/akxpMruODOU/discussion

I am having very similar issues.  Google Chrome/Flash 11 seems to be the common denominator.  No issues in Chromium/Flash 10 or Firefox/Iceweasel running Flash 12 and Flash 10 respectively, IIRC (certainly wasn't Flash 11).

I think it has been well established that it is not an Ubuntu problem.  I am experiencing this on Linux Mint which is an Ubuntu-derivative, but also in Siduction which is not (Siduction is Debian unstable).  I do not have Flash 11 in Debian Squeeze and both Iceweasel and Chromium are fine there (at least with respect to flash video).

I don't know about Windows.  That being the only reason to boot into Windows is not enough of a reason for me right now.  Really not *that* curious, esp. when I can just run it in Firefox for now.  But really think this needs some attention.  Flash is so pervasive that, even if the geek press is right and Flash is dead, it will take a couple years to begin to see a real difference in websites and a few more to see it die completely.

Mi dos centavos.

Re: Youtube Video Problem Seth Hoots 2/25/13 5:19 PM
Just wanted to give an update to this since it's still happening in F18.

For those who are still having the yellow snow confetti issue (personally I am on Fedora 18 and latest Chrome install as of 02-25-2013), this is the fix.

The previous fix was to "remove the pepperflash plugin". This is no longer an option for Fedora users, or at least not me as I had one single plugin. If I removed it, I didnt have flash for Chronme. As mentioned, there was only 1 single plugin listed for Flash so I had to manually install Adobe Flash using the steps here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash

Once I had the flash-plugin package installed, I made a symlink to the jacked up pepperflash.

First following best practices, make a backup:
mv /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so.old

Now to symlink it:
ln -s /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so

That fixed ALL of my chrome Flash issues. Hope this helps someone else and keeps them from losing as much hair as I did during this plugin fiasco.

Hi, I'm having this issue now in Chrome Version 25.0.1364.97 on Linux Mint 13.

The code from about:flash says this...

Google Chrome        25.0.1364.97 ()
OS        Linux
Flash plugin        11.6.602.171 /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so
Flash plugin        11.0 r1 /opt/mint-flashplugin-11/libflashplayer.so (not used)

Re: Youtube Video Problem Seth Hoots 3/5/13 10:27 AM
Since you are seeing the ORIGINAL issue, disable your pepperflash plugin.

If the problem persists after disabling, closing, reopening chrome- try my fix from above using the symlinks..

Re: Youtube Video Problem Rick Brock 3/5/13 2:40 PM
hi Seth,
I have disabled Pepper flash and that has removed the issue.
However, i have to click "use this time" every time I load any youtube page.

I did try your simlinks option and broke Chrome... so I re-installed it and now have Version 25.0.1364.152. Pepper flash is disabled and i still have to allow Flash to use the old version everytime i visit a page.

I expect this error appeared when i updated mint13 a few days ago (though why i updated it when it wasn't broken is a mystery!)

Do you think this problem will go away with another release of Chrome?

Thanks.

Re: Youtube Video Problem Sleven7 3/18/13 5:50 PM
I've been having the same static issue for the past two months.

Issue solved when using --disable-accelerated-compositing

I opened a terminal and typed:

google-chrome --disable-accelerated-compositing

The static goes away

Re: Youtube Video Problem Harish k 3/27/13 9:30 AM
I cannot get rid of the issue even after uninstalling . I don't find pepper flash plugin .  

So installed google chromium . Now I don't witness the problem .
Thanks to chromium ..

Re: Youtube Video Problem SonikkuAmerica 4/11/13 1:49 PM
This has been fixed in Adobe Flash Player 11.7 (the Pepper plugin) if you have an Intel 965 graphics card.

Has not fixed HTML 5 still get the same errors.
you still need to disable --blacklist-accelerated-compositing or youll and up with the same errors as in picture on HTML5 content.
Flash 11.7 has increased the CPU use yet again just for the same content thank good for 11.2...  

Re: Youtube Video Problem graphitegb 4/25/13 9:15 AM
Ubuntu 13.04 has updated the graphics drivers to messa 9.1.1 and this has fixed it...
Other Ubuntu spin offs should also be fixed with 13.04..

Re: Youtube Video Problem Dave Appleyard 7/21/13 8:39 AM
I was also having this issue with some YouTube videos (though not all) using Chrome 28.0.1500.71. Other browsers in both Lubuntu and Windows XP all worked OK.

Right clicking on the offending video shows that it is not in Flash format but HTML5.

I found that by right clicking on the video then clicking HTML5 you get to http://www.youtube.com/html5 where there is the option "Leave the HTML5 Trail". Selecting this option forces YouTube to suppy the video in Flash format. It is necessary to reloading the failing video before the spreckles disappear.

Re: Youtube Video Problem Sleven7 7/21/13 1:31 PM
Dave, clearing Chrome's cookies worked wonders on the speckles.
Re: Youtube Video Problem Dave Appleyard 7/23/13 4:32 AM
After further investigation I find that this is a video driver issue. It seems to occur only on the G965 graphics processor when the video is in .mp4 format. This can be shown by playing any .mp4 video file using Chrome.
Although it is possible to get rid of the problem so far as YouTube is concerned by getting that site to send the video in Flash format rather than HTML5 (=.mp4) and also disabling the Pepper Flash plugin (version 11.7), that does not resolve the basic issue. Whenever Chrome plays an .mp4 video the confetti is there.
The solution is to update the graphics driver. I did this by adding ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers to my software sources list and updating all software.
See the thread at http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=164555 for more information.
Re: Youtube Video Problem SantiMe 8/17/13 8:09 PM
