Lately (a week or so) I have this incredibly annoying bug: Every once in a while I get to the point were youtube and other
.flv-videos play for two seconds and then stop. If I press start and stop or skip to another position in the video, I get another two seconds. *Restarting gnome helps it for a while, resta*rting firefox/totem doesn't help.
I did not change a thing in my video or flash-player options. The problems occurres in totem as well. VLC is fine.
Gnash seems to help the problem but creates others: With Gnash there are a few webplayers that simply don't work anymore. The 64bit-nonfree has the same problems as the 32bit-nonfree (2 seconds then stop). The problem is independent of gpu validation. Clearing cache and cookies makes no difference. Only restarting gnome helps.
Here is some info on my system. The error occures much less frequent since 12.04 but is still there.
