    Hello guys,

    I have a 27" 2011 iMac with i7 and the 2GB GPU upgrade. I see the following gibberish on the screen when I try to play any video on my iMac on theVerge.com. This also happens (only sometimes) when I watch videos on YouTube. These videos are running on Adobe Flash.

    Does anyone have any idea what this is and why this is happening?

    Thanks!

    Looks like an issue with the Flash player. Have tried a different browser? Updating to the latest version of Flash?

    I tried both. And I checked with Safari and Chrome. But the issue still exists.

    All I can find is:
    - a suggestion to try a permission repair
    - a suggestion to try the Beta version to see if that fixes some issues: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1046675?tstart=0

    Otherwise you may be better off in the Adobe forums.

    Thanks. Do you think it can be an issue with the iMac/GPU hardware?

    Not sure if it's on Mac but right click the flash video player and select settings or about flash player to bring up the prompts about accessing webcam/mic, there should be a setting there to turn off hardware acceleration.

    It is a problem with your hardware, I can't pinpoint what it is, but it could also be problem with video drivers. (Kext)

    Not if it's exclusive to Flash video.
