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.

Thanks Adam. It started running in full screen a couplke of days ago but intermittently. I have just updated Flash and wills ee what happens. Maybe I should a better browser, like Chrome. I am using AOL presently.

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.)

OK, Chrome it is then. Thanks again for your help.

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.

I had the same problem. problem was the flash players, took off his novel and I made the problem so I then returned the old and everything worked properly. although the problem was and the video card, but with older version of flash payer was all right.
ps: I personally like Mozilla for such things ...

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