The problem you describe with the flash videos affects me too.
I haven't tried to play a video DVD, so I don't know if the other
problem affects me. I am able to play short video files in a sub-folder
of my home folder, of types "wmv", "avi", "mov", "mp4", and "mpg", using
either mplayer or vlc, without the color problems you describe.
I suspect if you use the nvidia card, you will be okay.
I, on the other hand, have a machine with no card-slot for a graphics
card, so I am stuck with the Intel graphics, which worked fine on 12.10.
When I tested this machine on the live CD, I tested playing the above
video file types, and assumed everything would be okay (because they all
played successfully). Unfortunately, flash player is different, and I
did not think to test it.
So now my primary development machine is upgraded to 13.04, and I cannot
watch youtube videos on it - not that I spend much time doing that, but
it is annoying. I won't change it back, because there are new MIDI
audio features that I really want, available on it.
My other machines that have Intel graphics on them, all have nvidia
cards on them, and I have no such problems on those machines. YouTube
videos work fine on them.
I suspect that all Intel graphics drivers (even the ones that had no
problems in 12.10) have been dropped from support (are no longer
