Youtube videos glitching up

Every time I go onto Youtube to watch videos I can hardly even watch the videos. This glitchy mess usually happens with videos that aren't constantly in motion, like a very static slideshow. The glitch affects the video area only, and appears like 2/3 of the video has bee stretched like it's being smeared or is "raining pixels." In a few cases it's a lovely dithered effect that looks like a teenaged girl's first go with eyeshadow. For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE HELP. I am but a poor whelp that is being fed videos through an IV daily, and I cannot take my hits when the smack is so trashy.

Sorry, I took 3 screenshots but firefox isn't accepting them for some reason ...

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.


You can check for problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions and try this:

Hello,

Please try updating your adobe flash player if you have one. To open add-on manager hold CTRL+SHIFT+A or type in the adddress bar about:addons. Then look for "click to see if your plugins are up to date". If this not work, try refreshing your Firefox.

The Refresh feature (called "Reset" in older Firefox versions) can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your bookmarks, history, passwords, cookies, and other essential information.

Note: When you use this feature, you will lose any extensions, toolbar customizations, and some preferences. See the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article for more information.

To Refresh Firefox:

  1. Open the Troubleshooting Information page using one of these methods:
    • Click the menu button New Fx Menu , click help Help-29 and select Troubleshooting Information. A new tab containing your troubleshooting information should open.
    • If you're unable to access the Help menu, type about:support in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting Information page.
  2. At the top right corner of the page, you should see a button that says "Refresh Firefox" ("Reset Firefox" in older Firefox versions). Click on it.
  3. Firefox will close. After the refresh process is completed, Firefox will show a window with the information that is imported.
  4. Click Finish and Firefox will reopen.

Thanks for all your help, everyone! Cor-el, it turns out that hardware acceleration was my problem after all! Toggling that option in the tools has fixed the weird glitchy problem in the Youtube video window.
