You tube goes black on full screen


When I'm looking at a 'you tube' clip, I usually try to do so 'full screen'.

These days tho, the damn thing goes to a black screen (with sound) when I ask it to go full screen.

1. Right-click in the standard youtube video window (non-full screen).
2. Choose 'Settings...' from the Flash Player's pop-up menu.
3. Uncheck the 'Enable Hardware Acceleration'
4. Click 'Close'.

Problem solved. It's been perfect since unchecking that box.

Many thanks!
