Youtube has changed the internet video world drastically. Almost all of us use youtube (on firefox, chrome, opera and on internet explorer) to watch our favorite videos, and Enjoyment becomes double when we watch the videos in full-screen.
But some of the people are facing a problem that When they play any youtube video and click on full screen option, it shows a black / blank screen, while the audio and annotations are still playing. And when they return to the normal browser screen, this problem gets resolved and video starts playing along with the music and annotations.
If you do have the same problem then OriginalTips has got a solution for you.
1. Go to www.youtube.com
2. Search and Play any video of your choice
3. Now right click in the video playing area, and click on settings option.
4. Then go to the first tab, you’ll see that the option Enable hardware Acceleration is already selected, then unselect it.
5. Then close this Pop-Up
Now you will be able to see the youtube videos in full screen without any problem. 🙂

When I click on Settings, a message box appears asking me to choose whether I will allow someone access to my camera and microphone settings, and mentions nothing of a hardware acceleration option.
Just go to the first icon as shown in the second example picture given in this page.

I had previously done the same thing that you asked to do here. But didn’t want to click and undo anything, make things worse, and not remember what I did and how to put settings back. Anyway, thanks again for this post!!! You’re the best!
