  Playback of video in Flash Player becomes very accelerated at random
  times until reboot

Status in nvidia-graphics-drivers package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  At random times, ALL video playback in any flash-based video player (e.g. videos on YouTube and Vimeo) start playing at abnormal speed, several times faster than normal. I have already reported this bug to Adobe (and incredibly enough nobody from adobe has said a f***ing word), but two things make me suspect this is something much deeper and external to Flash Player:
  1. This only happens on Linux
  2. more importantly, when this start happening, restarting the flash player (usually the browser) doesn't fix the issue. Nothing except reboot fixes the issue.
