Color not accurate playing Youtube videos with 12.04LTS?

  • joshl, tried all the above you recommend and it remains totally unresponsive for me.

  • It happens too...
    Maybe you should try another player? :idea:

  • Opera beta 25 shows it has HTML5 player but it won't play anything on Youtube.

  • Opera 12 says Flash Player is installed.
    Opera 25 beta says Sorry, Flash Player is either not installed or not enabled.

    You need to install the pepper flash plug-in (pepperflashplugin-nonfree), which should be in the Ubuntu repositories.

  • linuxmint7, pepper flash plug-in doesn't come up using Synaptic Package Manager or Ubuntu software center.

  • Having trouble with other sites play vids.
    While Opera 12 says Flash Player is installed and plays all fine.
    Opera 25 beta says Sorry, Flash Player is not installed and won't play at all.
    When attempting to install Flash 11 on Opera 25 Ubuntu Software Center says flash 11 is already installed!

  • Have you refreshed synaptic to make sure the package database is upto date ?.

  • Yes, refreshed synaptic.

  • I guess it's only available in the Trusty Tahr (14.04) and newer repositories then.

    As I am running Linux Mint 17 (based on 14.04) and it appears there for me.

  • On my distro, I had to install Google Chrome to get the plugin for 25.

  • Been playing around with 25 on 12.04 and am not impressed! Opera 25 won't play Youtube or Yahoo videos and any others for that matter.

    Then there is bookmarks or lack thereof!!! Most but not all bookmarks from 12.06 went over but they are all jumbled up in no organized listing and it seems like you have to do a lot more clicking to do what 1 click does in 12.06 or earlier Opera versions!!! What were they thinking?!?!?!

  • Ok, went back to running Trusty Tahr 14.04 and used Opera 12.16 which plays Youtube videos with correct color.

    Then installed beta Opera 25 and again it would not play Youtube or Yahoo videos and any others for that matter.
    Followed linuxmint7 instructions above to install the pepper flash plug-in (pepperflashplugin-nonfree), which was be in the Ubuntu repositories and BINGO, videos now play on Youtube and Yahoo with correct color!

    Also am pleasantly pleased and surprised and with how beta Opera 25 performs better and snappier on Trusty Tahr 14.04 than it does on 12.04!

  • Great. 🙂

  • Yes now that color and videos work, time to try and figure out 'Bookmarks' which seems to be a convoluted mess! Wish they would have left the old bookmark manager which worked great, as it was.

  • It isn't as bad in 25 as it was in earlier Windows and Mac versions, if that's any consolation.

  • Got used to the old bookmark manager, if that's what you are referring to. Didn't have a clue what they did to bookmarks in 25! Still trying to figure it out. Had 100s of bookmarks that imported over to 25..... for the most part in alphabetical order. However it seems when new bookmarks are added, they just get dumped into unsorted bookmarks with no way to alphabetize them, as was possible in earlier Opera versions.

  • fixed my colour issue by playing a video in firefox, opening adobe settings, unticking 'hardware accelerater' closesing firefox. operas colour now corrected.
