    Flash 9 + nvidia dualview (twinview) YouTube fullscreen issue

    Hello!

    New here. Been using Ubuntu for three days now.

    I was going through everything I could possibly find about flash and firefox and I managed to set it up right. So now I am using flash player 9 with FF, installed it by this method. Everything works fine now, I have even managed to get amarok back working with ALSA so I am not experiencing those pulse audio negotiations.

    I am using two displays at the time. They are both identical, running off of GeForce 6600. I have also installed the 3D driver from the package manager. Everything is running fine and I am using twinview (extended desktop) by modifying the xorg.conf file myself after 5 minutes of googling. The only real issue with this setup is that I cannot watch YouTube videos in fullscreen.
    I tried to turn off the twinview in xorg.conf so only one (primary) display was being used and it worked without a problem.
    With twinview I get fullscreen video forced on a secondary display even though I am usually running FF on a primary display. It just drops it in the secondary display, the video size is the same as in window mode, the area around it (which should be fullscreen) is tipical YouTube white.

    It is not that I am much of a YouTube watcher, but in my case when I'm doing the thing it has to be flawless in any way possible. I tried other video portals and they load fullscreen perfectly on my primary display.

    Anyone having the same issue?

    Thanks for you help!

    It seems to me Flash 10 has the same problem too. Here is a workaround.

    1. install vlc plugin for firefox(mplayer has audio sync problem on flash video)

    2. install greasemoneky if you don't have it.

    3. install this userscript.

    This will replace flash player on youtube pages.

    I just set up twinview myself.

    I have a 9600GT PCIE 2.0 graphics card, a 22 inch ViewSonic LCD monitor, and a 17 inch Dell CRT as my secondary.

    I'm running Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 64 bit.

    Same issue here.

    Not just with nvidia cards either.

    Same problem here with Ati & Big Desktop.

    Just install OpenSuse and got the same issue, so it's not a ubuntu specific bug. I have the impression that the bug is from the youtube player itself.
