I am still suffering from this, by the way!
I've 'upgraded' to pepper flash in chromium
this issue still happens (occasionally) and so far clicking on another video then hitting back button fixes it every time.
still, it's bloody annoying
Seems the issue is 'less' happening right now - can anyone confirm that?
It is not 100% solved as far as I can tell but now, another issue is happening - not sure if it related.
1- I open a youtube video
2- go to another website or click 'back'
3- go back to the same video and it is blurry

I don't know if it is clear or not.
So, it the screen is not black, it is blurry.
Nothing much is happening on the bug report
As a workaround it's worth joining the YouTube HTML 5 beta, I've been using it for a while without issues and any way to get rid of flash is worth a look IMO.
Catch me on Freenode - imark
Has anyone upgraded to 14.04 LTS with the same issue happening? I'm still on Xubuntu 12.04 LTS and haven't yet upgraded (most likely will not as long as Xubuntu 12.04 LTS is working very well) and the issue is still happening and there is no action on the reported bug
The only news I read the other day was:
