View Full Version : [ubuntu] Fullscreen video won't work.

June 21st, 2011, 05:33 PM
Hello there,

I'm using ubuntu 11.04 with Unity 2d as my hardware is too old to run the original one. I was previously using Lubuntu but after a slight RAM upgrade decided to use Ubuntu.

Now I can't watch full screen video's online which is not the problem as it's always been like this with every distro I've used but now I can't even watch full screen videos in VLC, totem or any other media player for that matter, it'll either lag or completely freeze my system and this worked in Lubuntu fine!

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would really like to get this fixed, Thanks in advance, Kris.

Sounds like a video driver issue..
Unity 3d can run okay on a netbook with intel chipset graphics..

from a terminal..

lspci | grep VGA
& post the result.
