How come I cannot watch youtube videos in full screen mode?

by on October 25, 2010

Q: Anytime I attempt to expand a youtube or vimeo video to full screen, my screen goes white. I have to hit escape to get back to the reduced screen. What do I need to do to get a fully expanded Screen.

    Picked as best answer

    Right click on the video when it is small, select “settings…”, in the little window that pops up click on the the tab on the far left and uncheck the box labeled enable hardware acceleration.
