Windows 7: You tube streaming video

You tube streaming video

When I watch you-tube videos they work fine is the small mode. When I go to full screen, the video will freeze up while the sound keeps playing. This just started happening a few days ago, before that it worked fine.

Help,

Hi Oldspook,

What browser are you using now? Have you tried viewing the videos in another browser?

Cheers,

I was using Firefox, just tried IE32 it does the same thing. Video freezes in full frame while sound plays normal.

I just tried it in Windows XP (duel boot system). It plays fine at full screen in IE.

Problem solved. I just right clicked on a streaming video and clicked on settings. Then I unchecked the box that selects hardware acceleration. After that, full screen video works fine, tested on several different videos with both Firefox and IE32 browsers.
