youtube videos on chrome in linux
« on: March 20, 2013, 04:48:39 PM »
Hi there
Guys I have got a problem i have never seen before, Os-Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
when I try to play youtube videos on Chrome the (latest one 25.0.1364.172 m....), the video play with stars/gliters/ hundreds & thousands on top of videos space only.
I couldn't understand what is causing that, i have uninstalled and re-installed chrome and the videos play fine Mozilla.
Thanks in advance.
Vik :cheesy:

I don't use Linux or chrome so I don't know. But I do know that chrome will try to decode the video itself. So since it plays fine in Firefox then you know it isn't your video or a driver. Instead it seems like it is just a bug in the newest chrome. :wink:

Thank Shane, its possible new version of chrome isn't totally compatible with linux.
it used to work fine.
any way Firefox is working fine thats enough for me for now.
cheers
