• 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

    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.
