I searched but couldnt find anything about this. I'm new to linux so I'm sorry if this has already been answered.

When I adjust the volume, there's an onscreen display showing the volume level. When I have full screen youtube, the onscreen volume display exits full screen youtube. What can I do so it doenst exit the full screen? Also, where can I adjust all the onscreen displays such as volume control, brightness, etc. I'm using Hardy and Opera 9.51.

Thanks.

flash itself has some problems on linux, so it might be a problem with the linux build of flash that is causing youtube to exit full screen mode when you adjust the volume

also i dont understand your second question, you mean where to adjust the screen brightness and the volume control?

i use this with youtube and opera, maybe it will help?? it makes the picture bigger, but not all the way to full screen. -

the site had exceeded it's bandwidth when i just tried those links to check it's the right script, but this is it here -

if (typeof GM_addStyle != "undefined") {
GM_addStyle(css);
} else if (typeof addStyle != "undefined") {
addStyle(css);
} else {
var heads = document.getElementsByTagName("head");
if (heads.length > 0) {
var node = document.createElement("style");
node.type = "text/css";
node.appendChild(document.createTextNode(css));
heads[0].appendChild(node);
}
}
you put that code in a directory, i put mine here, and named it youtube_resizer.js -
~/.opera/my_userjs
then tell opera where to find it at -
Tools>Preferences>Advanced>content>Javascript Options>Under where it says User Javascript Files, in that box. i put the full path (NOTE if you do use this use your username and not mine :P)
/home/iceni60/.opera/my_userjs/

here's who it looks -

In my second question, I was asking where I could adjust the settings for OSD or possibly disable it.


ice, not quite what I'm looking for, but I'll look into that.

This might answer your question about the volume pop up. It doesn't help much though.
Been searching for a way to disable it myself, but there seems to be no much interest.

It's a bug in flash. The main thing (that I know of) that you can do at this point is vote for the bug in the adobe bug tracker:

oops, didn't mean to bump such an old thread. Came here from a recent reddit post.
