Hallo!

I use Kubuntu Oneiric with rekonq as default browser. I have a fully functional flash-plugin (tested with other browsers & rekonq also.

But everytime I hit "CTRL +" or use the zoom feature on rekonq the video would not scale with the page (like pictures, fonts and anything else).

How to fix this?

thx for reading,

Hi! Thx for your answer.

But why are you closing this topic?
This cannot be a wanted behaviour, can it?

Is this a bug or are we missing an obscure switch in a configuration file?

I would really like to replace firefox (or opera in your case) with the browser that KDE wishes to establish as integrated standard. But as is now, with the described scaling problem (is this maybe a webkit setting?) it seems close to unusable for me, because I have to scale about every page ((cause of having quite bad eyesight ...).

I would like to leave this question open if you don't mind.

Nobody closed the topic, I only confirmed your experience

you should post a bug report on bugs.kde.org, first making sure one doesn't already exits and if it does vote on it

Verion 1.1 still doesn't zoom the videos ...

Nobody bothers really? probably because nobody uses rekonq!
Why might that be the case? Maybe it's because you can't zoom videos?
Or is it just because it doesN#t get better with new versions? Who knows ...

I planned on using rekonq from verion 1 on, but it's still not usable!
how comes it's labeled as version1 when it's not finished yet?
This seems to be a big problem within the KDE development: Publishing programs as stable though it's still lacking on funcionality and is still buggy ...
I don't know what the devs try to acomplish by this practice ... it just anoys people ...

whatever, who needs another browser anyways ...

The zooming of the video itself may be restricted by the flash applet - which can use non-standard parameter settings to determine it's size.

I filed a bug. Firefox scales the same page, Chrome does it, also Opera.

Have you tried? Does it zoom (scale) for you?

thx, piedro

I am using Rekonq 2.0 now - it's still the same, when I hit CTRL + the movie on youtube doesn't scale, the black area reserved for the video does scale but not the video itself ...

BTW: Now I also have the problem that the colors blue and red are swapped!

For me rekonq is still unusable ... which is a shame, cause it could be much better than the big browsers!

thx for reading,

the blue red swap is a Flash/Nvidia/Vdpau issue, you have a Nvidia card? Vdpau installed? Hardware acceleration enabled in flash? Google (for blue & tint & flash) as there are patches and workarounds available, basically Adobe messed up and doesn't do anything for Linux Flash except security patches.

Thx for your answer!

I know about the blue/red swap bug - yes, I have nvidia, vdpau and hardware acceleration.
But Firefox doesn't have this problme, Chrome/chromium doesn't have this problem and Opera doesn't have it too.

So I think if, as we know there are, working solutions out there, they should be incorporated in Rekonq. Rekonq is the newcomer amongst the browser and there are reasons to prefer it over the big browser names. But noone, me included will use it, if it behaves worse than others ... so I still consider it a bug that should be solved by the development team and not passed on to the user. Cause in that case there won't be any users ...
(It doesn't help either that the scaling problems haven't be solved since 2 years now - who uses a browser productively nowadays without comfortable use of youtube?)

Thx for reading,
just my two cents,

you should experience the blue tint in all browsers, I experience it in Opera

it's not the browsers responsibility, either Adobe or Nvida should patch it

You are right about the responsibility (though waiting for adobe/nvidia may not be the most reliable solution)
but you can trust my word on this : I only have this problem with flash as it is embedded in the Rekonq browser!
(I haven't tried epiphany or others though ... )

thx, piedro

as most of the issue is on youtube (don't recall why) you can join the html5 beta test www.youtube.com/html5 which substitutes for Flash

strange you only see in in Rekonq where I see it all the browsers
