    I updated my display drivers a while back, and now i can't watch youtube videos on full screen. It goes fullscreen but doesn't move, it's still playing but i can't see it. The time is stuck at where i clicked ''fullscreen'' at, when i highlight the pause icon it doesn't highlight, it's still clickable but doesn't highlight. I know i got the right drivers, I'm hoping i don't have to install the old ones and keep those. OH Also i installed the new drivers over the old, just a Fyi.

    That might not necessarily be a problem with your video drivers. I mean, do other sources (like DVDs or movie files on your computer) suffer the same problem?

    Youtube uses Adobe Flash to run. This is a grab from their Help site:

    I uninstalled flash player and now i can;'t reinstall lol. It wont download, so i'm going through the steps to reinstalled flash player now, but the weird thing was that when i had the drivers uninstalled the videos worked on fullscreen, but it went black for a second before it showed up as fullscreen. So that's why i thought it was the drivers, i will keep trying to reinstall flash player. I had the beta of flash player (flash player 10) and i uninstalled. trying to get flash 9 now.
