wrong color mask

Bug #242362 reported by Joerg Delker on 2008-06-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
flashplugin-nonfree (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

Description: Ubuntu 8.04
Release: 8.04


Adobe's flash plugin obviously uses a hard-coded color mask
(red, green, blue masks: 0xff0000, 0xff00, 0xff) which does not necessarily fit the actual mask used by the X Server.

As a consequence flash content (e.g. videos) shows wrong colors, when run on alternate X-Servers (like Sun Ray Xnewt).
The plugin shall not use hard coded values, but query the XServer for the correct mask to be used.

which I assume is what you are referring to as "beta 2".

The plugin shows in "about:plugins" as
    File name: /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so
    Shockwave Flash 10.0.0 d525

The problem remains the same though :-(
