    right click on a video and go to settings (flash settings), disable hardware acceleration and see if that fixes it.

    If it does it means the decoder chip on your GPU is faulty. RMA it.

  4. it could also be a bad video driver.

    I know that lately I have been having issues with youtube when switching between browser and full-screen mode, and it happens on multiple machines, so some of this may be some youtube growing pains.

  7. I must say, try the driver thing I guess, worth a shot, however I notice that there is a real issue with mid-range GFX cards recently.

    there is such price pressure to compete here that I think manufacturers are skimping where they think it isn't too obvious, like the video decoders and GDDR chips. people pay for the GPU, not the brand of GDDR, so they will buy as cheap as they can and run as close to the limit as possible.

    Just a casual observation of the trends I see on these forums.

    there is no hardware acceleration to select

  10. is it a flash video or html5? If you are running chrome the setting is located elsewhere. search the settings for acceleration and a check box is there somewhere.

  11. If you are on Facebook or any other website where videos will not play because it turns black or green with no video but you have sound...
    Solution:
    Whatever browser you are using... chrome, firefox or internet explorer... You have to turn off Hardware Acceleration. then close your browser... then go back in, and you shouldn't have this problem anymore....
    Example of this is... Chrome | three horizontal lines at the top right of your browser | click SETTINGS | scroll down untill you see Advanced Options | Scroll down until you see Hardware Acceleration | Uncheck the box... then close your browser or refresh... videos should play without turning green

  14. Hi everyone,
    I have ATI RADEON 4870 and since i installed Windows 10 i had green screen in every video while using bs player or any player and green screen in youtube videos. I saw many solutions by noone of them were useful. Then, i remembered that 10 years ago when i had windows XP i used to download ffdshow codecs. So I download ffdshow codecs and... miracle!!! I can see now my videos and everything without green screen.
    Try it guys, i am not advertise ffdshow but these codecs solve my problem.
