New flashplugin 10.2 video overlay issue (Nvidia ralated ???).
 
With the new flashplugin there is an issue with the video overlay. Some times after watching a video the overlay stays there. The only way to "reset" it is to restart X.

Same behavior with or without hardware acceleration.

Does anyone face the same problem?

GPU: Nvidia 8400 GS proprietary drivers.

It seems that it happens with Nvidia cards only.

It's already known

So, what is about? Vdpau related? Any thread/hints about it?

You can switch to a vt (with ctrl+alt+f1 etc) and back (ctrl+alt+f7 or f8). That too clears it.
And sometimes makes the plugin area grey in the proces and you have to reload the page...

It happens with the 270.x drivers (probably the 260's too) on 8xxx series cards (i have a 8200) all the time and for lesser extent with a NVS Quardo 135M.

Also you might experience vdpau tearing after a plugin was loaded regardless if the browser was closed since - though this behaviour seems corrected in 270.26 drivers.

Maybe it is related to the cards supported vdpau features (my 8200 has B, the Quadro has A)...

Definitely seems to be a nvidia driver+flashplugin issue as all major browsers (Firefox, Opera, Chromium) exhibit this behaviour on Linux ( i have Debian testing 32-bit).

Update:

The issue seems to be mainly with treating background colours or text colours as transparent (but never both at the same time).

Right click on flash window from context menu select settings and disable hardware acceleration. Flash uses OpenGL and GLX to accelerate drawing. It looks there is incompatibility between OpenGL/GLX and VDPAU. Disabling hardware acceleration does not disable VDPAU. Just OpenGL/GLX acceleration of flash.

I think i found a workaround:

Installed Google Chrome dev version (to be up to date) and used the built in flash plugin in other browsers (i use Opera mainly). It works perfectly.

Does the new version (260.19.44) fixes the issue?

I don't see why it should. A bigger possibility is that the flash 10.3 beta works better: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10-3.html. You can also try the flash 11 alpha: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flas...incubator.html

10.3 still crashes.

10.3 works as badly as 10.2 with forced enabled acceleration.

It is NVIDIA's fault: it seems like NVIDIA drivers don't quite like applications which use OpenGL and VDPAU simultaneously.

Please try latest NVIDIA driver 270.30 and let us know the result.
