Description Gideon Mayhak 2008-10-14 20:46:45 EDT
Description of problem:
In Fedora 10 Beta/rawhide (latest updates installed) x86_64, Flash performance is generally poor and fullscreen playback does not work (the area of the Flash player goes gray).  I have both x86_64 and i386 nspluginwrapper packages installed, including their dependencies.  This occurs with both Flash 9 and the latest 10 RC.

[gideon@gidux-laptop-rawhide ~]$ yum list installed | grep nspluginwrapper.x86_64
nspluginwrapper.x86_64                   1.1.0-11.fc10          installed       

How reproducible:
Every time I try to go fullscreen with a Flash video (on YouTube or Hulu or similar).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10 Beta/rawhide x86_64
2. Install nspluginwrapper.i386 and its dependencies
3. Install either the latest stable Flash 9 or the latest Flash 10 RC
4. Go to YouTube or Hulu and play a video
5. Click the button to go fullscreen
Actual results:
Gray screen where the Flash video is/was.

Expected results:
Go fullscreen and play like it does under Fedora 9 i386.

Additional info:
I haven't tried installing firefox.i386, because it is not available in the x86_64 rawhide repo.  If it was available and it worked, I would be willing to downgrade.  However, I'd prefer to run as little i386 software as possible, as I'd like to move to x86_64 altogether.  Am I doing something wrong?  Do I need to install something else?

I guess I should also note I am using the proprietary NVIDIA drivers with TwinView.  Here is my xorg.conf:

I'm using almost the exact same setup in Fedora 9 and I can go fullscreen (although, it always go to the leftmost screen, even when Firefox is on the rightmost).  I also just installed the i386 PulseAudio libs to get sound, but that made no change to the fullscreen issue.
Comment 2 Gideon Mayhak 2008-10-15 18:55:57 EDT
And I just updated to the stable Flash 10 release on both Fedora 9 and 10 Beta/rawhide with no change.
Comment 3 Gideon Mayhak 2008-10-16 19:49:24 EDT
If I do not have my external monitor connected (so that it's just my laptop display), I can go fullscreen with Flash.  This seems to be an incompatibility between Flash and TwinView, though it does work fine under Fedora 9 32-bit.  Is there anything I can try to get it working under rawhide x86_64?  At this rate, I may give up on 64-bit until Fedora 11 (it's not like I *need* it, but I'd like to fully utilize my available hardware).
Comment 4 Gideon Mayhak 2008-10-16 20:11:32 EDT
Umm, nevermind?  I'm sorry, but I redid my settings in nvidia-settings and it's now working the same as in Fedora 9.  I'm sorry for bothering you.  Who knows what happened, but it's working now.
