           Summary: Flash Player 8/9 ActiveX Control: animations flicker
           Product: Wine
           Version: CVS/GIT
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-multimedia
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: emiller at imvu.com

When running Flash Player as an ActiveX control inside another program,
flickering appears as regions are redrawn. This behavior appears in at least
two programs:

* Internet Explorer 6 (through the ies4linux project)
* IMVU (http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=3927&iTestingId=2551)

I know that ies4linux is unsupported by the WINE team, but since identical
behavior appears in another executable that embeds Flash, I think it's a
problem with WINE.

I am using the current GIT version of WINE (wine-0.9.45-g8d1a859).

Things I have discovered:

* The Flash plugin for Firefox works fine

* Using the latest nvidia and nv drivers does nothing to improve the situation
** Hardware: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44 [Quadro
NVS 285] (rev a1)
** Nvidia driver: 100.14.19

* I have tried multiple versions of the Flash ActiveX control, including:
** Flash9e.ocx (prerelease, see
** Flash9c.ocx
** Flash8d.ocx

* The Flash 8 control flickers in a different but equally unacceptable way

To reproduce the problem in IE, download the Flash ActiveX control from Adobe
and then go to a site with Flash (e.g. www.youtube.com). To reproduce the
problem in IMVU, check Settings -> Use Text Chat and then click "My Room". The
text chat box is a flash widget and flickers quite noticeably.

You can obtain different versions of the ActiveX control from Adobe here:

Please let me know if I can provide more information.
