YouTube Video Issues in Google Chrome

Recently I have noticed the following issue when I was viewing videos on YouTube with Google Chrome.  All YouTube video’s seem to have this green car added to the top of the video and also look blurry. I also noticed that the color seems to be distorted. The odd thing is that other sites don’t seem to exhibit this issue.

To fix this I did the following:

Right click on the video window > settings  this will take you to the adobe flash player settings. Uncheck “Enable Hardware Acceleration” and click Close

I have noticed that this seems to only happen with older, lower quality videos.
