I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 on an Asus UX305. When I open a video I can't resize it, and it flickers blue when I resize it.

I show the problem here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBL2BAU8Vyk

I have this issue with VLC but also with Skype. For VLC there is a workaround (which I show in the video) but not for Skype. Help appreciated.


As i've already said , the solution is here . I'm trying to maintain it, there is alot of different things related to skylake video drivers.

  • Awesome! This solved my problem very easily. – Hassan Jun 24 '16 at 22:26
  • I had same problem as the OP, running Ubuntu 16.04 on a NUC6i5. This solution worked like a charm! – RTbecard Nov 7 '16 at 12:03

I just had a very similar problem as in the video, but I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and only use Intel Graphics. The problem started after I installed vdpauinfo and libvdpau-va-gl1, because VLC was complaining about their absence.

Removing them fixed the problem virtually instantaneously:

sudo apt-get remove vdpauinfo libvdpau-va-gl1
