• Gnome shell watched full screen video shows up later

    I’m just noticing that if I watch a video full screen or a youtube video full screen and close it some of the old video screens shows up when the recently watched closed.
    It seems like it has been stored by video memory or by gnome itself?
    Both way it feels very strange when I see a picture of a video that I watched one hour ago.
    No matter what I did in between.
    Is anybody experienced this?

  • @louis1 I do not have such issues. It will probably depend on the graphics card and eventually the software you use to view videos.

    In order to help, you need information, like hardware you use.
    Around the console could provide this data:

    inxi -v 2


  • @judd Ok here is the inxi output:

    As I checked again it maybe caused by flash player. I used popcorntime that I guess uses flash. It happens when I use youtube in firefox and the video is full screen. When I quit full screen it flashes back the watched video for until it goes back to normal size. But clearly visible picture of the watched movie.

  • @louis1 Did you find a solution?

    I have the same problem: When I exit full screen on Flash and HTML5 videos, I often see pictures flashing up. They are frames from other videos or pictures I have opened in EoG - often several hourse ago.

    I too have an nvidia card:

  • @dispi4 It seems like gnome accessing cashed video memory and displays random frames of the programs you mentioned. The problem is it happens random not always. So it is hard to repeat and check what happens. I did clear all cache with bleachbit and it seems to work. But again it must be a bug in gnome shell or else I don’t know.

  • both using flash and firefox + nvidia?

  • @joekamprad We are both using nvidia, but in my case it’s not restricted to Flash or Firefox:

    In Firefox it happens with Flash and HTML videos (e.g. Youtube), but also with webpages, when I put Firefox in fullscreen mode with F11 and then exit. The same applies to (chromium-based) Vivaldi browser.

    Aside from the two browsers, it happens with mpv Media Player, but not with Totem or VLC.
