youtube Youtube Green screen crash

28 posts in this topic

Ok so I?ve been having that green screen crash issue with youtube and only youtube I have no issues with other flash based video sites. Now the fixes I?ve tried but nothing worked I have tried the following..

  1. Updated / rolled back my GFX drivers (currently using the best for everything else)
  2. Uninstalled then reinstalled flash
  3. switched browsers twice
  4. and yes even the old trick of right clicking on the video and disabling hardware acceleration

It's not at the start of videos just half way through some videos it goes green and skips to the end so what could i be missing? had anyone else had this and how did they fix it?

Thanks for any input!

Been so long since I've experienced something like that, but as far as I can tell, it's probably codec related.

Do you have a codec pack installed? If not, maybe try one and see if that fixes your problem.

Shark007 Codecs works great, but there are others.

Or wait till others give some comments, don't just take my word.

avoid klite codec pack... if you got it you may have to reformat to get rid of it... it's very hard even with tools that "completely remove" things....

once again, there is nothing wrong with klite anymore, they've gotten a lot better than they used to be. i used klite just fine for awhile till i switched over to full MPC-HC recently

anyway, back on topic, i doubt it's a codec problem, you're pretty much on the right track blaming your graphics driver and flash

what graphics card do you have and what version of flash do you have installed?

Yeah now im just looking into the possibility that it is a codec issue since I'm using the CCCP which hasn't been updated in over a year.

any windows updates that could have altered the codecs???? sometimes that happens... rare.... but it does...

codecs are very touchy... so it's hard to get them fixed...

Have you tried this fix (if you are using chrome) I know on my Windows 7 machine and Chrome this one fixed that issue.

Oh, how long have you had the problem for? As in did it just start with that version of Flash, or has always happened?

The current version of Flash is 11,5,502,124. Maybe update and see if that helps... or not.

Current version of Adobe Flash is 11.5.502.131 Beta. Try it and also update to any Beta nvidia driver like 310.64 etc just for try.

Download latest from here: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11-5.html

Little update when it crashes to the green screen as it skips to the end i get the odd flash of snow/static you know the sort you get on an untuned channel on a TV and it seems to only happen to 720p video sooo maybe it could be codec related.

I was having weirdness with youtube and playing other videos whose codec was GPU accelerated. I had to update the firmware of my graphics card to fix it.

afaik flash doesn't use external codecs. So I don't see how any codec pack could affect flash much, unless it completely borked up your flash install somehow.

Do you guys have Eset AV or Eset Smart Security installed? Because that's the same problem that i had and i uninstalled Eset and it was gone no more green videos on youtube or on any other site.
