So, you have the problem on both your systems.  And all the videos on youtube show speckles.

If you go to chrome://plugins/ and look for Adobe Flash Player you *may* have 2 entries similar to:

Name:    Shockwave Flash
Description:    Shockwave Flash 11.6 r602
Version:    11.6.602.180
Location:    /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/
Type:    PPAPI (out-of-process)

Name:    Shockwave Flash
Version:    11.2 r202
Location:    /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/
Type:    NPAPI

If you do, can you disable one or another to see if the problem changes depending on which is selected?  (Not certain if a restart of chrome is needed for the change to take effect).
