Why do people in YouTube videos look blue on Savion Linux?

Episode 922 (2:26:10)

Kevin from North Carolina

Kevin is a Linux guy who runs two different flavors of the open source OS. He's having one issue though and that's with playing YouTube videos on Savion Linux. The people in these YouTube videos appear blue! Leo says it would've been a flash issue if it was true with either version of Linux, but with Savion only? That's crazy! So it must be a color issue (that Leo has dubbed "Smurfing.")

The chatroom says that the last big update Adobe did of Ubuntu flash and nVidia video cards will get this issue. Check out this site. One thing he can do is turn off hardware acceleration. This article on YouTube video in Ubuntu may be of help as well.
