3 Comments on How to Fix Wrong Youtube Tint

Introduction
After a recent Ubuntu update Youtube has tinted the sky orange and people blue. This article will help resolve this issue.

Solution
If you do not have the directory “/etc/adobe” use the following command in the terminal

sudo mkdir /etc/adobe/

I like to use the terminal text editor but you can use what ever one you like.

sudo nano /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

Add the following lines

EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
OverrideGPUValidation=true

Press CTRL+X and enter to save the file.
When you restart your browser the issue will be resolved.

    This problem is not new. I had this months ago (on Ubuntu).

    Note that this solution may lead to a frequenty crashing flashplayer. I used this one and got a lot of crashes until I discovered this solution caused the crashes.

    Have a look at the long answer here for other solutions:

      Thanks, I just noticed this issue today, found a workaround and thought I would share it. Your solutions seem a lot better.

    This is also not an Ubuntu specific problem – I had this problem for a few weeks on my CentOS before it bothered me enough to look for a fix. I found the article Martijn linked to a few days ago, and used the “Prevent Flash Player from finding libvdpau” fix. It worked great for me.
