Description Paulo da Silva 2012-09-07 00:32:47 UTC
Almost always, when I try to watch a youtube video having flash deactivated I got:

1. The "read" progress bar evolves until ~1/5 then goes to the end;
2. The play shows no progress at all (full black screen);
3. If I stop firefox it seems sutting down but a process remains active eating 100% CPU!

After this occurence, it's almost impossible to see any videos without flash again.

A few times, however, I am able to play a few videos without any problem - Just could not determine when, yet.

This never happen with previous versions (ex. 14).

Reproducible: Sometimes

Comment 1 Paulo da Silva 2012-09-07 18:19:57 UTC
I could determine that this happens after supend to ram (kde menu) or just using the command
qdbus org.freedesktop.PowerManagement /org/kde/Solid/PowerManagement suspendToRam

Steps to reproduce (ffx=firefox):

1. Start ffx
2. Deactivate flash plugin (in my case I have all plugins deactivated)
3. Play a youtube video
4. Stop ffx.
5. Suspend to RAM
6. Start ffx
7. Trying to play a youtube video does not work, with the symptoms previously described. This is not 100% of the time. I could play it once, but only once.

To be able to play the videos again I needed to do:

Just reboot or

1. Enable flash plugin
2. Stop ffx
3. Restart firefox and start playing a video
4. Disable flash
5. Now you may play any video again, even after stop/restart ffx until you suspend to ram

This is gonna be a video card issue I am sure, but lets here from the X11 team.

The NVidia proprietary driver is not maintained by x11 team. Feel free to assign to us when the issue can be reproduced with nouveau.

If you can reproduce with new esr branch ( 31.3.0 ) please reopen and update bug completely.
