Have you ever loaded a video on the Internet and, instead of the video playing, you got a weird, greenish-tinted screen that moved a bit but didn’t let you see the video? I had that problem for months, and finally solved it about a week ago. I’d been planning to write a post, but apparently now I don’t have to. Amit Agarwal, as he always does, explains how to solve the green screen problem:
If you refresh the web page, the ‘green screen’ problem might vanish temporarily but it is very likely to stage a comeback in your next browsing session. And this problem is not specific to YouTube but any video website that uses the Adobe Flash Player.
The fix is however simple. While you are on a video page, right click anywhere inside the Flash Player and choose settings. Now click the first tab that says Display (look for the monitor icon) and uncheck “Enable Hardware Acceleration.”
If that doesn’t make sense, watch the screencast in his post to see exactly how to do it.
