Flash video flickering red and green after some time

So I've been watching a lot of world cup football/soccer game on the CBC website recently, and I realized that whenever I tried to watch two games concurrently, the screen would start to flicker red and green after some time. Turns out, the problem according to a forum post was hardware acceleration.

To fix the flickering issue (on any website that is playing the flash video):

1. Right click on the video and click Settings
2. Uncheck the box for "Enable hardware acceleration" in the Display tab (should be the first tab) like so:

3. Refresh the page

This should fix the problem!

Okay, back to watching the world cup!
