Youtube question (Try to run full screen and just get a black screen)

[ Edited ]

I just got my new Toshiba Laptop today, and when I try to view vidoes from youtube on full screen, all i get is a black screen that is split in half with grey for a moment.  Is there anything that I can do to fix this issue so that I may view full screen youtube videos?

Re: Youtube question

There is a known bug in Flash Player, which will cause a YouTube display to turn black when full screen. Adjusting the following Flash Player setting should fix it.

 

While the video is playing, right-click on it and click Settings. Uncheck the box for Enable hardware acceleration.

Re: Youtube question

Is there any other known tools that cause that to happen?  Sometimes I get a similar reaction when I open some emails containg videos...

I only know about Flash Player's bug. But it's often in use.
