This fails with Safari 3.1, Firefox 3 and Opera on Windows. Probably a flash plugin

Are you sure?  It works for me in Safari and Firefox, and if I enable in-process plugins.  Looks like it's related to 
our invalidate throttling.  I'm debugging it..

Hi guys! My site doesn't shows the Windows Media controls under the video, the images 
shows normally. When I use Safari, Opera, IE, everything it's ok. Anybody can help 

Comment 5 by, Sep 10 2008

Can you provide a url?

I tracked this issue down to how we throttle invalidates until we get a paint.  It seems that an invalidate is sent 
from a plugin but WebKit decides that that region is clipped (since there's an out div with overflow: hidden) and 
doesn't send a paint.  So the plugin keeps queuing up the invalidate rects.

So far this doesn't look like it impacts a lot of sites, so we'll just punt this until the near-term fix of improving 
windowless painting lands.  It'll fix this issue.

Looks like the videos from are working fine with build Google Chrome (2200)

This will be regressed back to the original non-working behaviour today.  I'll look 
into it after that some more.

Deprecate Area-Plugins label in favor of Area-WebKit and a separate Plugins 
label (reducing number of Area- labels).
Status: Fixed
This should be fixed in one of the recent builds:

No need to uninstall Chrome -- just download and unzip this file, and run 
"chrome.exe" inside the extracted folder.  Please give this a try and see if it helps 
solve the problem for you.

Thanks for the report!
I have a dev channel version

I have just reproduced the issue in question on video starts playing 
and stops after 1 second.

reproducible always. unfortunately :(.

Looks like I can still reproduce it for some of the videos.

--Navigate to
--Search for the word "Castle" and play the video underneath it.

FF2.x, Safari3.x, IE7.x works fine.
Looks like there is really some inconsistent behavior over here. Just noticed, even 
some times, I could not able to play the video in FF2.x and Safari3.x too. BUT I'm 
so lucky to say, got the video played in Chrome just once too. Looks like we need to 
have more attention over here.

Finnur was also able to reproduce this issue in 154.

Same repro steps as before.  Killing the Flash process and refreshing the window 
makes the video work again.

This works fine on ToT.  Reopen if you have a reproducible scenario that doesn't work 
on ToT.

Comment 19 by, Oct 16 2008

I can still reproduce the issue on

basically if I have many windows open (about 8) with some tabs in them, some of them 
gmail, and open, the video always stops after 1 second.

version (Official Build 3339)

Hmm... That's unfortunate. Lets see if John can repro it given your instructions.
Tested lots of links on also using words - "Castle"

Also tested video on

Works fine on physical desktop but works slow and some time hangs for a while on 

Comment 22 by, Oct 24 2008

it works in most cases for me as well - the bug didn't reproduce for a week or so.
But today I hit it again - nothing plays on

Mahaniok, what version of Flash are you running?  

We think that this might be a Flash 9 issue (also observable in Firefox).
Status: Fixed
This is a bug within Flash 9.  Should be fixed and verified with both Flash 10.

Comment 25 by, Oct 25 2008

I run Shockwave Flash 9.0 r124. Though, I never observed this issue in Firefox.

I will set up Flash 10 to check if it fixes.
