For Ubuntu 14.04, fglrx-updates and newest Chrome / Flash, the problem does NOT affect Youtube, just videos played by other Flash players.

Current & no like: screen gets suspended regardless to Firefox / Chrome Flash video being played at the time.

Desired & like: screen suspension is canceled while Flash video is playing.

So far it seems as a Flash issue, but maybe I can fix that by changing screensaving program?

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise

Wow, there is Chrome about:flash!

Google Chrome   35.0.1916.153 ()
Flash plugin /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so
[some crashes]
WARNING:    GPU access is not allowed: GPU access is disabled in chrome://setting

Oh, and all flags have default settings.

About GPU process - it crashes some time after Chrome startup. Flash video and WebGL, GPU process works at first - about:gpu mostly green hardware accelerated but then it gets red and NOT HW accelerated, don't know why and when exactly.
