Very recently, Youtube videos (including mine) took on a Smurf aspect: blue skin tones and other weird colors. I don’t spend a lot of time watching videos, but I’m pulling together a talk and wanted to be sure my videos still worked.
- Adobe is dropping Flash for Linux after version 11.2
- The most recent update swapped the UV color channels
- Adobe can’t reproduce the problem, hence no fix is in the offing
At least for Youtube videos, one can turn on their HTML5 video option to avoid Flash, but that doesn’t fix the other issues.
The recommended FlashVideoReplacer plugin didn’t work for me in Xubuntu 10.10, alas.
