    YouTube won't run full screen.


    Every time I try to run Youtube on full screen the image disappears and I only get a black screen with sound. My Graphics card is AMD 5450, Windows 7, 4 Gb Ram, AMD Phenom 2 1055 CPU. Until recently everything worked well. Any ideas?

    Check for updates on your flash player, also, restart your browser and computer if you haven't already.

    AOL really? Yeah, I'd highly recommend getting Firefox or Chrome. I'm using FF 4.0 right now and am excited to see what the final version brings (it's still in beta testing.)

    I'm running into the same issue. It started after I updated to Internet Explorer 9. Hmmm...compatibility mode doesn't fix the issue either. To work around this you can simply go back to normal viewing mode (i.e., not full screen), pause the video, switch back to full screen, and hit play again. For some reason that works. I noticed MS just released 5 or 6 updates for Windows today so I'm anxious to install them and see if one of the updates doesn't fix this bug.

    Me too! I always prefer Mozilla. But for heavy application chrome is good. It is faster then Firefox.
