Thumbs down Fedora 11 Playing youtube videos


Hello,

I just installed Fedora 11 and I'm running Firefox 3.5.5, when I play youtube videos I could hear the sound but the video looks really weird, like if the computer is frozen, lines all over. I tried re-installing the Firefox adobe plug in but nothing. can you guys help? I don't want to go back to Ubuntu.
thanks

P4 2.8GHZ
2GB RAM
1TB Hard Drive

Thanks

Did you install the latest version of Flash from adobe or was it a version that came with Fedora?

have you updated the new install of fedora 11 there are about 3 gig's of updates for a full install .
and have you looked at mjm's fedora page

what is your 3d card ?
if you have a built in pseudo 3g chip( not a full card) you might be out of luck depending on WHAT it is .
and have you installed a driver for it?

I have an integrated 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)
card. I reinstalled the whole system and installed the latest Adobe from the adobe site but I still have that problem.. all those line on the screen. Now, this system has had Ubuntu and OpenSuse installed and both of them worked just fine. any ideas? I'll wait until tomorrow, if I don't find a way to fix this I will go back to ubuntu which was working fine.
Fedora 11 works great in my Dell Laptop. thanks guys

in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf ( if the file exists -- it might not)
what is listed as the driver "intel" or is it the generic " VESA " driver?
are there any errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log ( EE )


there have been reported problems with the intel chip and most linus distros

So, you've decided to "give up" and leave something that's giving you trouble to go back to something that worked "just fine". Fascinating.

I know it is bad to give up but I've been looking everywhere and this youtube videos just don't look good. I need to copy all my data which is backed up to a hard drive and I need to open files so I can't wait anymore. I'll reinstall ubuntu and then prob wait for Fedora 12 to be released.
thanks guys.

ceantuco you still have not stated what is in your xorg.conf ( if there is one ) there might not be .

for a intel chip you might want to read the fedora unity -- FIXED page
http://fedoraunity.org/Members/jonas...archterm=intel

or add " agp=off " to the boot option .

or the " intel " help page over at fedora forum

The file Xorg.conf doesn't exist. I checked the /var/log/Xorg.0.log and it doesn't show any errors.
