Monochrome YouTube?


Hi,

I hope this is the right space to put this, if not: apologies and gratitude to the moderators for correcting...
I have Flash player 10.2.152.28 and noticed youtube is ... black and white.
Can I do anything about that? Instead of waiting for an update, of course.
Thank you for some input!
Wellness to all

Thor

You might have to disable hardware acceleration through your flash settings. See here:

Hi,

No such luck (that's why this reply took a while - I was trying to find a way) "Settings" is grayed out...and it not only happens in youtube. Settings can not be reached anywhere, tried Garfield.com - a seriously dependent flash site, for one. Sesame stree's site does'nt even allow me to access the right-click - possibly optimised for Mac? However (and this COULD be a clue) only youtube displays in monochrome, others go in color...

Maybe I'll have to sit this one out and w8 4 the updates...

Tnx for the input...

Thor

Do you have the problem in every browser?
Try to block cookies from youtube.
Try to disable hardware acceleration at

If nothing helps, you can downgrade your flash player

Kind regards
