    grep -i glx /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    Hello, I would add that the application is also blue with human skin in Debian Squeeze Linux Kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64. Interestingly, the video page / products / flashplayer.html demonstrates that 3D applications work without human skin blue (swf) but other swf files have problems of human skin blue / flashplatform / 2012 / 02 / Rovio-chooses-flash-player-11-with-support-for-3d-graphics.html. This happens to be on Chromium, Iceweasel or Opera and other browsers not tested but most of Debian's Mozilla flavor. So far the types of files are affected swf and flv. Despite this bug be closed as a suggestion, it would be something related to 3D card? I use a GForce 8400MS.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Hello, thanks for the answer.

    Older versions had no problems. This problem came direct after installation

    This browser are tested: Chromium 17.x/18.X and Firefox 10.0.2

    My system informations:
    Linux Mint 12 64Bit
    Nvidia 280.13
    Xorg 11.0
    GeForce 8600 GT

    Here is a screenshot:

    I have a other issue too. In the installation manual is a sudo command where the original overwrites. There is no backup

    This bug came back.
    And EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1 in mms.cfg is ignored now.
    Is this a war on Linux or what?

    I have this bug on my computer for weeks (Opera and Firefox).
    Video card: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT, 304.64 driver installed
    OS: Fedora 18 686
    A temporary solution was to disable hardware acceleration. But this way most
    internet games and even some (youtube) videos are slow...
    So I'm waiting for a real fix.
    But, from what I'm reading everywhere, it looks like it will never gonna be
    fixed by Adobe. Not because it can't be reproduced but because you have no
    interest in fixing it. Easy to figure out why...

    All my videos on Youtube got strange colors after an update.
    I'm using Linux Fedora 16, 64bits, Nvidia driver.
