Ubuntu won't play full-screen Flash videos smoothly, and they never look very good blown up that much, anyway. They don't look very good at native resolution, either. I've got a Stylish theme for YouTube to blow up those videos to about double the native size, and I wrote a GreaseMonkey script to do the same on a few other sites, but is there a general way to do this on every site?

Naturally you'd need a way to distinguish videos from other Flash content, so it probably can't be fully automatic. Something modeled like an Adblock filter subscription might work, though. Maybe an extension that puts a resize handle on Flash objects, and then remembers that size persistently for that site...

You can use zoom, which applies to flash too.

What do you mean "zoom"? – endolith Oct 25 '09 at 4:50
View -> Zoom in the browser. Or Ctrl(Command)+"+". – Nickolay Oct 25 '09 at 15:06
Oh. That would just increase the size of text, images, and all Flash equally though. – endolith Oct 26 '09 at 15:20
