Flash on Chrome 21.0.1180.79 (64-bit) really erratic

Postby riverfr0zen on Wed Aug 15, 2012 8:02 pm

Flash was working really well on Chrome (64-bit) until I did a software update this morning and it updated to Chrome 21.0.1180.79.

Now it behaves really erratically: sounds skips, delays and repeats (like the max headroom effect). It is also out of sync with video. Video itself seems to have trouble staying in sync, speeding up and skipping frames like a crazy thing.

I noticed that Chrome is now using its own Flash version 11.3.31.227, as opposed to what's installed on Mint (11.2.202.238), and am assuming the trouble lies with this version, which seems to be quite broken. I know Chrome typically does use its own Flash, but I believe it was not doing this before on 64-bit systems (see here: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=103176#p585607).

Just wondering if anyone else is seeing these same issues on 64-bit systems, and if you have any suggestions to fix it (maybe some way to force Chrome to use the Flash from the repos instead?)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You are not the only one having the problem. Unfortunately I am not sure how to fix it either. Going to try Firefox for a day or two and see if that works any better.

I am using chrome 32bit. Maybe you can try :
Open google chrome>setting>show advanced setting>content setting>disable individual pluggin
or enter address chrome://plugins/
click detail: disable an older software flash ( in my case i have to disable Shockwave Flash Version 11.2 r202 and 11.0 r1)

if not works, try disable a newer flash (Version: 11.3.31.227 ) and enable an older one.

Awesome, that worked. The only thing I'd add is that on the chrome://plugins page, you'll need to click on the Details link at the top right to see all the different versions of Flash they have. Then, disable the newest one (Flash 11.3.x). Once I did this, Flash worked great again. Looks like this new Flash they are shipping with Chrome is not so good for 64bit machines.

Anyway, here's a screenshot of what I did, in case it helps anyone else.

The trouble is on Adobe.
On their site, I got a message stating that the last version to support Linux is 11.2 r202

I can confirm that switching to Firefox is a very good temp work around until it get's properly fixed in Chrome.
