[SOLVED] Youtube colour?!

Hi guys

I’ve noticed in the last couple of days that whenever I watch a video on YT there is a loss of colour. An example can be seen here.

This only happens on the YT site, if I watch an embeded video on a different site the colour is fine.

I’ve tried ‘ducking’* the problem but no luck. If anyone can help I’d appreciate it.

  • ducking - term used to describe the use of the greatest search engine on the net, duckduckgo.com. Also see duckedit, duckit, duckwhack.

If your using NVIDIA there’s a problem with the VDPAU module with how it decodes flash video. There seems to be some weird way YouTube encodes.

Just right on the video select Settings > Untick Use Accelerated Hardware

Should fix it.


Solved! Cheers dude. I wonder why that’s only started happening in the last few days. I’m liking google less and less!!

Oh well…

No problem. It’s just a bug of some sort no one can figure out yet. The problem isn’t on any other platform NVIDIA support, so who knows.
