Linux graphics aneurism

Post by bobsuperjohnbobson »

I am sick of the linux graphics drive/hardware crap.
Why is this such a problem, and why do my youtube videos now have horizontal lines while playing?
https://www.dropbox.com/s/cz5uqaqcu4zr6lp/video.mp4

Flash player is doing it too!
https://www.dropbox.com/s/bhdqcxhdlnn4kxm/video2.mp4

This, just tonight, starting happening all of the sudden. Why is this happening and what's causing it?
I have updated NOTHING and NEVER noticed this before.

PS:
I had problems recording audio from this site tonight: http://patchwork-synth.com/
It's using flash, and audacity was causing audio stuttering and clicking (more often when not minimized)
And, comedically, the stuttering is now in the video and not audio XD

I'm so sick of people not making hardware support for Linux, too.

I just hope people would stop blaming Linux, and call the hardware manufacturers about it.
I have a favorite game. It's on my Youtube Channel.

Nobody is forcing you to use it. I don't see everybody complaining about this, so there's a good possibility that it's something particular to your system. Please open a terminal, maximize it to avoid cut off lines, and enter inxi -Fxz. Then copy/paste whatever that spits out in your next post here. That way there's at least a chance that somebody will be able to help you.

if audacity causing audio glitches while recording a website that means your CPU is not capable of rendering the visual waveform. have you installed any drivers in the driver manager?

What's the difference? Your hardware still doesn't work. ANd they have good reasons for not supporting Linux, it ain';t another conspiracy for the tinfoill hats.

I restarted my setup, and twice I got a glitchy vomit checkerboard pattern on screen. Today I started it, played vlc and it did not happen again. Now the lines have "fixed themselves"?? What the actual hell

You know what? This fixed itself, this is a much deeper issue than I can handle. Nevermind, my problem has fixed itself.
