Description Mikulas Patocka 2016-06-17 22:28:49 UTC
When I switch from Xorg to text console, streams in the chrome browser stop playing. Flash stops playing very quicky (within few seconds). Youtube html5 video stops playing after approximatelly 5 minutes on the console.

The system is Debian Jessie, kernel 4.4.13, graphics card GTX 560.

With the binary nvidia graphics driver, video in the chrome browser plays correctly when I switch to the console and it doesn't stop. I can listen to music while working on the console with the binary nvidia driver, but it is not possible with the nouveau driver.
