[Platform_Linux]Red palette is replaced with Blue
Red palette is replaced with Blue
Steps to Reproduce:
No, idea. I found the problem when watch vids on youtube.
I make screenshots with that video.
Switching on/off hardware acceleration does not do anything. Also no significance if vid is play on full screen or not.

flash player for linux is sucks! You are working for Microsoft or what?
9:10:27 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 14, 2013
This has been an issue for some time. I am tired of watching "smurfs" on CNN and would like Adobe to fix this as it appears to be a common problem.
9:54:25 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 9, 2013
This bug keeps randomly coming back for me every once in a while. Just stop denying its existence and fix it already.
3:56:34 PM GMT+00:00 Mar 27, 2013
I've found the way to work around this bug, now Adobe found the way to work around the workaround with the latest update. C'mon, this is bad karma.

All the Stage Video in flash is blue, which makes it unusable.

pah, got also blue people while watching youtube videos. hardware acceleration turned of and colors ok again
6:42:15 AM GMT+00:00 Nov 17, 2012
This bug should be fixed by Adobe as flash plugin is used by all videos on the internet.

a blue bug
6:19:19 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 19, 2012
I also have the bug in Chrome with player 184.108.40.206, but no problems whatsoever in Firefox with Flash 220.127.116.11. Same video running side by side.

Linux (Ubuntu 12.04)
GeForce GT220M, Nvidia drivers 295.40, libvdpau1 installed.
Adobe Flash Player renders blue videos in Firefox and Chromium. I am unable to show educational videos in my lessons if I use Flash.
7:02:12 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 12, 2012
Flash crashes, which means I can't use Linux to browse the Internet without manually downgrading to a very old version of Flash (10.3). This is particularly irksome as I'm a web developer and I've been using Linux my entire life without problems. It's an important bug for Adobe to fix because Linux powers much of the web and is used as the OS of choice by a high proportion of web developers. Best not to alienate them.
5:16:47 PM GMT+00:00 Oct 11, 2012
I confirm the problem on Ubuntu 12.04. Whish this was fixed.
4:20:13 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 9, 2012
Annoying bug. Adobe Flash is the only software producing it. Testet with several browsers, 3 different graphic cards, 2 different distributions, different nvidia-driver versions. Please do something about it.
11:57:23 PM GMT+00:00 Oct 7, 2012
I have this bug and I can't see a video on youtube without having all the faces of the people painted in blue colors. I have nvidia gpu and hardware acceleration in the flash player is activated. Here is a good explanation of what I have: http://askubuntu.com/questions/117127/flash-video-appears-blue
9:30:25 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 7, 2012
wtf Adobe, swapping the U/V planes would cost 1 developer like 10 minutes!
2:57:37 PM GMT+00:00 Oct 5, 2012
It's still broken you lying sacks of shit.
Fix it already.
7:58:48 AM GMT+00:00 Oct 5, 2012
Happens for me as well in Ubuntu 12.04 with an nvidia gpu.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Quadro K1000M/PCIe/SSE. I get blue instead of red hue. For more info please check -http://askubuntu.com/questions/117127/flash-video-appears-blue
Seems easy to reproduce. Please fix it since it is incredibly annoying and speaks so badly of the quality of your software!
12:23:14 AM GMT+00:00 Sep 26, 2012
Getting the same problem also on Ubuntu 12.04 with flash player 18.104.22.168
8:19:14 AM GMT+00:00 Sep 8, 2012
I can confirm this bug on Ubuntu 12.04 standard out-of-the-box install.
The card I use is NVidia GTX 550 Ti.
The bug is exactly the same : video with people in it is... well, blue, just like this:
2:32:38 AM GMT+00:00 Sep 8, 2012
This bugs makes using anything from youtube to any flash video site a no-no as it's either blue or if I try to fix with enabling HW libvdpau then it crashes most of the time.
9:26:58 AM GMT+00:00 Sep 5, 2012
I remember (pre Microsof) when Adobe was pure Unix, and they were the reference for bug free software. Then came Microsoft support and bug free software from Adobe was history. How about a return to QUALITY???
11:39:38 PM GMT+00:00 Sep 4, 2012
Fix it now, Adobe!
And get rid of Flash, world!
7:53:32 PM GMT+00:00 Sep 4, 2012
Impossible to watch flash based videos, such as youtube.
5:02:27 AM GMT+00:00 Sep 4, 2012
I cannot (properly) watch flash Youtube videos or any other video sites that use Stage Player. Please fix this *very* annoying bug. Or just release the source to flash ;)
3:01:00 AM GMT+00:00 Sep 3, 2012
This bug is real. Please fix it. I do not believe "cannot reproduce".
12:36:39 AM GMT+00:00 Sep 1, 2012
Video on demand service headweb is unwatchable because of the wrong colors.
12:46:43 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 29, 2012
Smurf-O-Vision is lame. Please fix Flash player.
7:30:24 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 27, 2012
To make YouTube videos watchable, I have to get a link to the FLV file and open it in VLC. Using Flash 22.214.171.124, Firefox 14.01, Ubuntu 12.04.1 and Nvidia GeForce GT 440 with the 302.17 driver.
10:23:55 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 27, 2012
This bug is extremely annoying. It doesn't affect productivity, but it affects my enjoyment of most videos on the web. Often times it's hard to make things out because all the colors are flipped.
12:58:19 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 27, 2012
in flash appears blue faces.
linux ubuntu 11.10, chrome 19, flash player 11.2.202
video card - nvidia
1:35:36 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 26, 2012
I see Adobe is still lying about this issue's reproducibility.
That's one way to ensure Flash will be replaced by HTML5 technologies even quicker,
10:08:38 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 25, 2012
Been experiencing this problem for quite some time in Ubuntu, both 11.10 and 12.04, 32 and 64 bit. It's still not fixed.
11:50:25 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 25, 2012
Youtube videos are unwatchable due to the wrong colors.
10:34:13 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 23, 2012
People are blue and this makes videos impossibly annoying to watch.
There's an excellent write up in Ubuntu question 117127 that explains the cause, and know workarounds.(http://askubuntu.com/questions/117127) See also Adobe Flash Player bugs 3077076, 3097844, 3109467, 3120888, and 3136745.
11:21:22 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 22, 2012
I see the same thing in youtube videos only. using the following system

Linux Kernel 3.2.0-29-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP
Nvidia Driver 295.49
12:22:52 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 21, 2012
I try to watch YouTube on Ubuntu and the colors are incorrect. The hue is shifted, causing people to appear blue. It's annoying when listening to music videos, it's impossible to watch other videos. This renders my whole YouTube experience useless.
4:36:34 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 20, 2012
Blue people and video is "rendered" paritailly while doing something else (be it minimized or behind another window), disabling hw accel fixes until browser restarted...

1:15:55 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 15, 2012
Bug doesn't impair my productivity but messes with my capability to keep myself entertained watching youtube videos.
4:47:42 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 14, 2012
Same here. I have found a lot of information googling. Please fix it.
1:41:25 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 13, 2012
Problem disappears when hardware-acceleration is disabled. Unfortunately this results in poor video-quality.
5:21:36 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 13, 2012
This bug makes me frustrated. I hope you can solve it soon as possible. :/
10:34:08 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 12, 2012
This bugs does feed to my sincere wish for Flash to loose against HTML5 on the online video streaming market.
6:21:12 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 11, 2012
Almost all videos at youtube.com are blue and can not be watched correctly.
3:38:26 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 9, 2012
This bug doesn't prevent me from watching since the video is there but it's very distracting where everyone is blue.
12:03:37 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 7, 2012
This is supposed to be the last version of Flash, meaning I will always be looking at blue people in videos on Flash. This is a major bug: fix it.

4:29:02 AM GMT+00:00 Aug 2, 2012
This is a very annoying bug, especially because not all video platforms using the buggy component in Flash offer a HTML5 replacement, and even then the support is only partial (a lot of videos on YouTube don't have a HTML5 variant). I think this is an accessibility issue now. I don't want to use video downloaders to watch web videos in their proper colours.
1:48:07 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 29, 2012

All of youtube is blue. I liked Avatar but this is a bit much...
5:14:27 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 24, 2012
There's two separate errors to which I believe may be connected. One is the blue tinted screen and two is the crash if interrupted by moving a cursor on a flash/video. This annoys me and forces me into an alternative system on my partition window system, specifically for video entertainment on YouTube.
12:24:47 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 22, 2012
Confirmed error on all of our Ubuntu Desktop systems. Linux is not the fringe market it once was. You have MAJOR fortune 500 companies using it now with your product. Please consider continued support on major bug issues such as this.

All the Youtube flash video are displayed with a blue tint. All other types of video is fine. Linux LFS 7.1. Gnome 3.4.
2:57:04 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 20, 2012
Every youtube video I watch now looks like I am watching the Blue man group, it is irritating to watch any flash videos now.
1:24:37 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 14, 2012
I am adding my vote because with linux and an nvidia card, I would expect flash to display correctly unless it was something the ubuntu, nvidia, etc folks looked over. Unfortunately for Adobe, a lot of inspection into the matter has been done (having used these platforms for a while now, I know how long it typically takes to fix even a stubborn bug). That, and all involved parties are pointing at Adobe. This certainly does not reflect well on this company; I expect a much higher level of keeping up from a professional company such as adobe--insofar as even to check other operating system's codes for bugs (which I hold you do not need to do; our OSs are in capable hands..)
Anyway, I'm off to install a horrible workaround for your neglect (I must add, possibly) over the last several months. If your bug is indeed the culprit, it merits a very large loss of my admiration for this company. If it weren't and you found the bug, it would merit more admiration. If it weren't and you didn't, I will have to go with the word of the people who have spent so much more time on this, their products being completely at stake.
As for me, too late! I'm installing workaround packages for (very likely) your incompetence.
12:03:13 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 13, 2012
I only created an Adobe account to be able to vote on this bug. And I switched to HTML5 on youtube to avoid using the buggy flashplayer provided.
1:56:27 PM GMT+00:00 Jul 10, 2012
I'm having the same problem. Tried the configuration based solution to override OverrideGPUValidation=true etc, and this works, but makes flash unstable.
I'm unwilling to install the software patch as it's not part of the base ubuntu solution, so I guess I'll have to deal with smurf-o-vision for now!
10:25:11 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 9, 2012
I'm using a patched-up version of libvdpau to work around this deal-breaker-of-a-bug.
Shame on Adobe for not investing in a $50 Nvidia card so this bug can be reproduced.
3:00:18 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 7, 2012
I worked around the bug thanks to the excellent instructions at http://askubuntu.com/questions/117127/flash-video-appears-blue/131040#131040.
Disgraceful attitude from Adobe. The sooner Flash dies, the better.
4:18:47 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 4, 2012
I am also impacted by this. Please fix.
2:56:45 AM GMT+00:00 Jul 1, 2012
i too vote for fixing this issues as user experience and thus reputation of Adobe products are negatively impacted.

I'm from Belgium so I really like the smurfs. But not in my browser (unless I did a google search for Schtroumpfs (that's Smurf in french, much harder to type).
So I saw there is a workaround, I'll try it this we, but make it official please or just include it in your next release.
10:23:48 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 28, 2012
All flash videos was blue
The Warren patch solve the problem
Adobe, please solve or contact Warren for help...
6:06:51 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 26, 2012
>100 upvotes on askubuntu. >200 subscribers and nearly as many comments on launchpad. The Internet has more than proven that this bug is not only reproducible, but affects hundreds. Stop wasting the community's time with bogus reasons to close our bug reports, and fix the damn bug.
1:48:55 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 26, 2012
Colour problems does not permit our QA department to validate video on Youtube.
4:33:13 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 25, 2012
urgently needed to be fixed, thanks to the developers for their quick fix of the problem.
2:18:14 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 25, 2012
How come not reproducible????????
6:26:58 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 24, 2012
How many people have to vote on this until Adobe finally stops lying about the reproducibility and fixes this?
Adobe: Your Flash Player is broken. You know the cause, you know the effect, you know the affected.
Go and fix it already.
6:19:19 AM GMT+00:00 Jun 23, 2012

almost any flash video in ubuntu 12.04 has a blue color. it suddenly became impossible to watch youtube videos and similar.

Flash is Dead to me now, Long live HTML5
12:46:25 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 19, 2012
tired of this bug, it's very annoying to have to use html5 (which doesn't work in some videos) just because adobe doesn't want to fix this.
12:24:44 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 18, 2012
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and can't watch youtube videos properly.

Since this is "the last Linux version ever", you could be kind enough to fix this bug, couldn't you ? Big companies seems not listening to us linuxers most of the time, but at least you can leave us with a functional product.

1:20:53 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 5, 2012
this is the most annoying bug
10:59:16 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 4, 2012
With an NVIDIA Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GT] card, youtube videos have a blue hue, especially skin tones. I have spent considerable amount of time researching work arounds. If Adobe can't get their act together to fix this, I will have to try to find substitutes for other payed-for Adobe products that we currently use (like Adobe connect, Acrobat professional).
7:08:38 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 3, 2012
This bug produces a user experience that is simply unacceptable under Linux. It is irresponsible for Adobe to leave this unfixed in the last version of Flash for Linux.
6:02:15 PM GMT+00:00 Jun 3, 2012
This bug makes video unwatchable on Linux with nVidia cards with the latest (and last!?) flash release.

Please fix this bug in flash for linux systems using hardware acceleration on nvidia graphics cards.

Please, Adobe... take your responsibilities, this time at least.
10:22:02 AM GMT+00:00 May 23, 2012
I have this Bug too on Ubuntu 12.04. Graphics card is Nvidia 9600GT with the 295.40 driver. Disabeling Hardware Acceleration solves the Problem, but Flash is then very unstable and crashes often.
8:00:08 AM GMT+00:00 May 23, 2012
Same problem here. I vote because it makes youtube pretty much useless. All the workarounds from sites like http://askubuntu.com/questions/117127/flash-video-appears-blue are no permanent solutions to this issiue.
12:56:54 PM GMT+00:00 May 18, 2012
I am voting because I upgraded my Ubuntu distribution and immediately ran into problems out of the blue (pardon the pun).
I imagine a lot of work has gone into the very-well working video hardware acceleration and after applying a workaround patch, things do run much more smoothly. For that, I thank Adobe.
However, there is one small bug left which completely nullifies the work done. It is incredibly easy to reproduce and obvious to detect. Playing a 1080p video smoothly at 3% CPU is great but doesn't mean much if blue is yellow and red is blue.
You have my eternal thanks.
10:13:04 PM GMT+00:00 May 17, 2012
I have an nvidia geforce 560m gtx video card with nvidia driver version 295.49 and flash version 188.8.131.52.
The only way to not see all blue and orange while playing videos its to disable the hardware acceleration (either with config files on /adobe/etc folder or configuring the player by right clicking at it while at full screen).
Please Adobe, the bug its fair easy to replicate, you just need an nvidia card and propetary drivers (noveau opensources drivers does not work to replicate the bug because does not implement hardware acceleration).
1:57:56 PM GMT+00:00 May 17, 2012
This makes flash pretty much useless for watching video.

I cast my vote on this bug, but I don't have high hopes that Adobe will be fixing this, as they have mad a similar bad decision as Nokia, just support inferior operating systems.
The best that could happen for the Linux community would be that Adobe would open up, release the current flash player as GPL (or any other open license format) and let us who know how to code to fix it the bugs and see to that the open source project will have needed information to keep the player up to date with new features.
How it impacts my productivity: I have to use more CPU cycles for watching flash videos and as everyone know, flash is a CPU hog and those everything else I do at the same time become sluggish.

If Adobe cares, they would announce this bug will be fixed AND FIX IT, but I'm not holding out any hope.
Many users have asked Adobe to develop a Linux version of Photoshop, but Adobe refuses to listen to Linux users entirely. By now, Adobe could have created Linux versions of their entire software suite, which users are more than happy to buy.
The best thing Steve Jobs did during his life was to ban Flash Player on Apple mobile devices. He did the world an enormous favour and made people realise that Flash is more trouble than its worth and users' are at the mercy of Adobe to fix bugs if they choose, or Adobe could do what they always do - blame someone else for the bugs and sit on the fence! Even Microsoft don't want Adobe's Flash on their "ARM" powered Windows 8. Says it all really!

I'm also having problems with this. Without VDPAU the flash player crashes usually in couple of seconds, with VDPAU all people are blue and without acceleration fullscreen can't be used. I would guess that linux users are using more nvidia cards than ati cards as their drivers doesn't have so many glitches.
So my proposal is that either fix the crashing bug with nvidia without VDPAU or fix this. I would suspect that this is quite straightforward to fix compared any random crashing issue...
I'm using 64-bit gentoo with nvidia gt-240 and proprietary drivers.

I see must of the videos on youtube in blue, and it's bothering me.
11:05:17 PM GMT+00:00 May 10, 2012
Very annoying. Apple maniacs says: that's why Flash is not used on my iPad...

This "bug" should have never made it into a final release of any kind! Please supply a PROPER fix for this. Thank you.

This is also affecting my machine - Ubuntu 10.10. The problem has been extensively talked about in the Linux community, and research has indicated that this is not an Ubuntu bug, an NVIDIA bug, or a libvdpau bug. There are workarounds that patch libvdpau with a hack to look specifically for adobe flashplayer using it, and swapping the colors in that case... This is a hack, and not the real solution.
12:15:08 PM GMT+00:00 May 8, 2012
Happens to me in both Ubuntu 12.04 and Arch Linux. Please fix! I will be upgrading my last 11.10 computer to 12.04 soon, and I want to be able to view youtube and other flash videos with the color being wrong.
12:42:08 AM GMT+00:00 May 8, 2012
Same problem here with Arch Linux i686, 3.3.4-2 kernel and both 184.108.40.206-1 and 220.127.116.11-1 flashplugin versions. Downgrading to flashplugin 18.104.22.168-1 solves the issue.

All flash YouTube videos are unwatchable! This is really annoying.
5:13:06 AM GMT+00:00 May 6, 2012
Affecting me, too. Just one of the several thousands (?).
5:30:37 AM GMT+00:00 May 4, 2012
Having the same issue as reported here and elsewhere by almost 300 people ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/adobe-flashplugin/+bug/967091 ) , tried with different workarounds with no good results. Please fix this, thank you!

Is it really just swapping two parameters in a function call? Adobe, please...
4:09:57 AM GMT+00:00 May 1, 2012
This bug affects me using Ubuntu 10_04 since I updated flash some days ago.
definitely no monitor issue.
This color troubles only do exist with flash.
skin colors appear as blue.
Running Nvidia GTX 560M.

Fix! Fix! Fix! Fix! Fix! Fix! Affected with Nvidia and vdpau and activated hardware acceleration.
1:36:39 PM GMT+00:00 Apr 30, 2012
Exactly the same problem as the OP, the only way to fix it is by patching libvdpau or the colour channels will appear inverted.

Please fix this annoying bug.
The workaround requires that users reduce the performance of their systems by disabling hardware acceleration which is ridiculous.
4:44:14 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 30, 2012
This bug is causing me disabling the HW acceleration for any Flash videos, which has hughe impact on the usefulness of Flash technology.
7:19:26 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 29, 2012
Please fix this bug, Flash videos stopped working on Ubuntu, and many people are affected by it.
6:52:39 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 29, 2012
Please fix it. Many linux users even don't have a clue how to disable hardware acceleration
6:51:45 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 29, 2012
This is a very annoying bug, as watching YouTube video's is no fun when any person in the video is colored like a smurf (as in blue).
6:15:15 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 29, 2012
This bug is making YouTube (an extremely popular web site) unusable for those people who are using a Nvidia GPU (extremely popular kind of GPUs) on Ubuntu (the most popular free Linux distribution). If Flash 11.2 is going to be the last universal public version of Flash Player for Linux, this needs to be fixed badly and ASAP.
Alternatively, please base your "five years of security fixes" on the version before 11.2 that didn't have this very glaring bug.
12:51:51 PM GMT+00:00 Apr 17, 2012
Please re-examine this serious regression on PCs running Linux with Nvidia graphics using the proprietary driver, and viewing Stage Video content such as Youtube. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/967091 for more details, but please ignore some red herrings that appear near the middle/bottom of the page as another program was found to have the same issue and people start submitting anecdotal workarounds (which fail).
