Fix blue tints in Flash / Youtube (rekonq)

Are you experiencing colour issues in Youtube or Flash videos in rekonq? Is everything too blue?

This guide will help you to fix that. It's a known bug between the nvidia driver and the current flash plugin. But there is a good workaround. 


  • Open rekonq browser.
  • Go to youtube website and start playing any video.
  • Right-click anywhere in the video canvas (on the video itself).
  • Select "Settings..." from the list that pops up.
  • Untick "Enable hardware acceleration" and close the popup window. See screen capture below

Now the colours should be looking correct.
