Package: chromium
Version: 17.0.963.83~r127885-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

My problem is exactly what is written in the closed bug #617782 (packet chromium-browser)

When I try to watch an HTML5 video on youtube, vimeo or others, there are 
moving red dots all over the video. The only option that works is switching 
to flash :(

In addition the sound stutters and is really bad, but I guess that is due
to one of my worst recent ideas: Switching to Pulseaudio. I'm not sure if
these two problems are related, but I don't think so. I think I saw the red dot 
problem way before the switch to Pulse.
