I did the tests on a XO4 with 1G ram and F18, and the behaviour is the
same, the webcam shows bright pixels purple.
I guess i understanding your points, just to confirm, so my problem
now is that the flashplugin isn't working properly ?
I agree with you, flashplugin isn't a good choice, but unfortunately
the only option for this kind of web sites that children really likes.
So the only one thing to do, is try to fix the flashplugin ?
