Full screen Flash with Google Chrome dual monitors.


When I have a flash video open full screen on one monitor and click a window in the other, the full screen window goes back to the normal browser window.
I've googled and seen some hex-editor fixes for Windows but I wondered whether I was missing something to fix this?
This is a Debian Sid system with Kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64, Chrome 27.0.1430.0 dev, Flash version 11,6,602,171 and the nVIDIA driver 304.64 with a GT 640.
I wouldn't be asking if the abandonware Linux Flash didn't crash when playing "HD" but I'm hoping that using Google's browser will placate them enough to allow me some crash-free video.

There's a config file for Adobe Flash? Have you tried that?

Thanks for that, I'd not seen it before. Sadly though I don't see any settings that seem to relate to my problem.

It's _always_ graphics issues with flash. It may not work, but it was your only real chance of altering things. The nvidia binary blob is out of your control, and X is never comfortable when full virtual screen is bigger than full physical screen.

Well, hopefully a driver or Flash update will fix it then. At least for now I still have a Flash version that works as I want.

I had to install the now deprecated Hal to get some encrypted bits of flash to work. It's only function is to serve up one lib (AFAICT) to the flash plugin. Hal excitedly joins in the great message passing and logging that goes on under the lid, but it makes exactly as much difference as before - NONE.

I had forgotten I had started this thread but, at some point Google seems to have solved this for me.
