I'm having fullscreen issues while using the latest Flash Player (11.2.202.228) which just came out today.

I am using the latest version of Google Chrome! (Windows 7)

Even while switching hardware acceleration off, the player is all pixelated in full screen.
(My hardware fully supports acceleration, and it's worked perfectly before).



To everyone who is having this problem, it's Flash.

Hope this helps everyone!

You did notice the screenshot you posted isn't pixelated, correct?

The embedded image is being scaled, that's why!

Here's the image on picasa:

Try going full screen on that photo.

That should better illustrate the problem.

Can you tell me if this is happening across the board, or was it just that show that you took the screenshot from?

Well Gundam Wing is a little pixelated to begin with since we only received DVD quality versions and it is an older show. So it will look pixelated compared to shows we simulcast in 1080p or even in 480p.

Sorry for the late reply, it is happening on all videos in fullscreen, in Google Chrome.

I have cleared my cache as well.

EDIT: Having the same problem in Firefox. Flash videos on other sites work fine.

Hope this clears up the confusion, and hope it gets fixed soon!

I still see nothing out of the ordinary for a frame from a 480p video; some compression artifacts, but that's about it.

I should note I'm viewing this on a 37" HDTV from under 6 feet away (just as when viewing anime at CR), not sitting a couple of feet from a smaller monitor.

There's a thread that can better describe my problem:

Hope to get back to watching soon.

I notice that it happens in 720p and 1080p.

Turns out Full Screen mode is affected by Flash 11.2.

We're working on this. Apologies.

Man, I'm glad I found this thread - Space Brothers 01 was stuttering like crazy and I thought something was up with my machine, but it's just the new Flash! Any updates on when this might be resolved?

I'm having the same problem, and also in 480p.

The workaround where you try to go into fullscreen as fast as possible as soon as you click the video you want to watch works but its less than ideal.

I will add one more to this. Nichijou and Nyarko are pixelated in full screen on both 480 and 720 with the latest flash player.

I think the issue with the new ver of Flash is how it does the scaling...

On my laptop, which is connected to my 1080p TV I get a clear non-pixelated image when watching 1080p content; but when I try watching the 1080p (or anything) on my desktop (running at 1680x1050 resolution), the subs and controls look like crap.

Same problem here. The 480p versions look terrible.
