YouTube videos play with a red color
We detected an issue with Flash 10.2 that might affect users who upgrade from Joli OS 1.1 to 1.2: most (but not all) YouTube videos play with a red color.
The problem is not related to Joli OS but to a bad interaction between Flash 10.2 and YouTube.
A reliable workaround is to disable the Flash hardware acceleration. You cannot do it directly from YouTube, you should do it from another web app using Flash like Canabalt or Space Invaders:
Launch the web app
Right click on the Flash component
Disable the hardware acceleration
Close the settings
If you were watching a Flash video on YouTube, you need to refresh the page
Websites say Flash needs to be updated
If you rebooted too early during the upgrade from Joli OS 1.1 to 1.2, it's possible Flash didn't have the time to be updated that's why you still have Flash 10.1 after the upgrade while Chromium 10 (and later version) recommands Flash 10.2.
