    I tried settings permissions (CHMOD) for /opt/google/chrome/libgcflashplayer.so to 777 but it didn't make the full screen work.

    Re: Youtube video turns white in full screen.

    Anything else I could do in order to fix the full screen mode problem?

    I have tried to go on different website with videos to try the full screen mode, and every time I got a white screen with sound in the background. Up to now, no flash worked on full screen.

    Saw your question while looking on google for the solution to this myself. Try right clicking on the video while it's playing in normal mode and going to settings, then uncheck enable hardware acceleration. Hope it helps.

    I got the same problem with youtube cant play when in fullscreen mode. Uncheck "enable hardware acceleration" can help but the video gets smaller (even smaller than normal) when you hit fullscreen.

    Great, it seemed to fix it for me. For people that didn't get to fix it yet, I found a temporary fix. I think it only works for youtube but I didn't check other websites.

    1. Go to a youtube video.
    2. Naviguate to /tmp/. (Example: /home/user/ -> Now it's only /tmp/)
    3. Find the video you are watching. (The file should be named: Flash + the video ID you can see in your URL bar.)
    4. Open that file and you will be able to see the video but without youtube.
    5. Press F11 for full screen.)

    It's easier to use my extension FlashVideoReplacer, which allows to watch YouTube with a different plugin, without the need to download the video or manually launching it from the tmp folder. It replaces the video on site.

    it worked for me

    Clearing the checkbox for acceleration in context-menu->Settings did it for me (persistently, i.e., running subsequent videos).

    Cheers for the fix
