How do i update the video driver?

How do I update the video driver for my Droid 2 Global? I have a custom Cyanogenmod installed but YouTube videos have a green bar, green tint, or are garbled.


By installing a different version of Cyanogenmod. Android is not like Windows, where you have to install each driver separately: all the drivers come integrated in the ROM. Sometimes, with third-party ROMs like Cyanogenmod, they don't quite manage to integrate the drivers properly (because only the manufacturer has all the required information), so you get defects like this one.

If you found the problem in a stable release, release candidate, or beta of Cyanogenmod, you should report it to the maintainers for your phone so they can fix it. If you've been using a nightly snapshot, don't bother, as they are expected to have serious errors and aren't suitable for everyday use.

Upgrade to a newer release if there is one, or perhaps to an older release.

I fond a "patch" solution. Basically, you must "downgrade" the video quality. To do the "downgrade" on Google's official app, follow these instructions:

  1. Open a video with the YouTube app.
  2. Tap any place of screen to show the menu (in landscape).
  3. Hit the 3 dots on the top right corner.
  4. Hit the settings icon to show the available resolutions of current video.
  5. Select 240 or less.
