[Platform_Linux]Colours in youtube videos are all wrong
With Flash Player 18.104.22.168, the youtube videos will be displayed with completely incorrect colours (see attached screenshots). I cannot say for 11.2 beta 2 (I do not have the file anymore), but it most certainly works properly with 22.214.171.124. Problem seems to be youtube-specific to some extent, since both metacafe.com and wideo.gazeta.pl seem to be working fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to Flash Player 126.96.36.199
2. Visit affected video, e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoIj5Hdpda0
Colours are off
Colours are displayed correctly
Up-to-date Fedora 16 x86_64, Firefox 9.0.1, GeForce GTX 485M, nvidia 290.10 binary drivers, Gnome 3.2.

people are blue and video is impossibly annoying to watch

I suffer from this bug on multiple computers: i686 Kubuntu 12.04 laptop, x86_64 Kubuntu 12.04 desktop, and Fedora i686, both at home and at work.
Some websites seem to work fine though. e.g. channel4.com/4od videos work fine for me, youtube videos don't, and bbc iplayer videos were working fine. I came across my first BBC iplayer video that doesn't work today (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/live-video/p00w387d - sorry if it's an IP restricted video). Other flash videos I've watched on their site have worked fine, until now..
I haven't tried the above solution.. I'll never remember it, and I quite like having hardware accelerated videos, at least on my laptop, so don't feel inclined to turn it off. Is that what the above /etc/adobe/... fix is doing?

This bug is egregrious and extremely widespread. Adobe is burning goodwill with Linux users by allowing it to go unfixed. Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, Nvidia GT 240 running 295.40 drivers. Also saw it running Ubuntu 11.10 32-bit on same hardware.

Also happens on ATI card.
Fedora 16, kernel.org kernel, git radeon driver, git mesa.
How was tested? Why is proof not enough?

Even with the workaround I posted this is a terrible situation, it's an extremely serious bug that should Not be allowed to persist in a stable release (last one or not)

Same issue here; Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit, adobe-flashplugin 184.108.40.206, libvdpau1 0.4.1-2, nvidia-current 295.33
The best workaround is to disable Hardware acceleration (which is kinda tricky under Compiz) or uninstall libvdpau.
