Fullscreen Flash Videos not playing in Ubuntu/Fedora/Debian/Chrome/Firefox/insert-whatever-here when Compiz Fusion Effects are enabled

November 1, 2010 6 comments

If the headline seems familiar to you… try this:

sudo mkdir -p /etc/adobe
sudo echo "OverrideGPUValidation=1" > /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

(source)
and restart any open browsers for it to take effect.

Adobe blacklists anything with SGI as GLX vendor string for GPU acceleration. Intel cards/drivers report this though. In combination with Compiz desktop effects = bad. So using above snippet fixed any fullscreen issues on my Lenovo Thinkpad T500 with Mobile 4 Series Chipset.

KDE pictures of awesomeness+1

Reading Aaron’s latest Blog entry I was totally blown away by the graphics he had in his post – to the point that I was so blown away I posted a comment asking where to get them when Aaron actually linked to them *cough*.

Anyway, check out Wade’s Blog and his public Picasa gallery for some awesome, awesome KDE related material. His stuff just rocks.

Push your World of Warcraft Video Settings to limits unknown

Log into the game, then input the following.

/console groundEffectDensity 256
/console groundEffectDist 200
/console detailDoodadAlpha 100
/console horizonfarclip 2112
/console farclip 999
/console characterAmbient

Not something I’d recommend when raiding, but it makes your visuals (horizon, amount of plants and ground detail etc.) look so much better. What it does is pretty much push the settings in your Video Settings to numbers you can’t set via the sliders.
To revert it – simply use the sliders again.
