Earlier today, I rebooted my PC and after logon I was presented with an Adobe Flash update, which I ran and then forgot about it.  This evening whilst catching up on the various highlights (I use the term loosely) of Saturday TV, I noticed my videos regardless of source all had a green bar across the top.

I am not sure what the new version of flash has done to my computer but to resolve the issue I had to disable hardware acceleration.

Right Click on the Video, select Settings

and untick the box.

Select Close and refresh the video.

The green bar has now gone and the picture is clearer too.

Hope this helps.

  11. well it works, but wont it cause another problem, like lack of smoothness in the movie’s movement and such? I did that to solve the problem and ever since I’ve been having the feelings clips move more ‘chunkily’, less smoothly from frame to frame.

  13. […] Stage 2: IE displayed a green bar at the top of every YouTube video.  And there was a noticable difference in picture clarity between Chrome/Safari and IE.  This must have been a fairly common problem because I found the solution to this immediately.  Here is a link to the site I found using Google: https://markparris.co.uk/2012/04/07/youtube-displaying-a-green-bar-across-the-top/ […]
