    Youtube video turns white in full screen.

    I saw that this question had already been asked a couple times, but I still couldn't resolve my problem.

    When I try to put YouTube videos in full screen mode in Firefox/Google Chrome, all I get is a white screen. I can still hear the sound in the background. When I press Esc to go back in normal mode, Firefox will crash and Google Chrome will display a message saying that the following plugin was blocked: /urs/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so

    When I am not in full screen mode, the video plays normally.

    I currently have Ubuntu version 10.04.

    Type about:config in Firefox address bar, then type plugin.expose_full_path in the filter, then double-click the same item in the results to make it true. Then type about:plugins in the address bar, find Shockwave Flash, copy the corresponding Path and Version and paste here.

    You have the latest version of flash 32bit and path is ok.

    Assuming that you are using effects (compiz), then try to disable "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" in Compiz. Go to “System >> Preferences >> CompizConfig Settings Manager >> General Options >> General”.

    If you don't have "CompizConfig Settings Manager" in the menu, then you need to install it.

    I'm not sure this will help, but usually this kind of problem is Compiz related.

    Seems like "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" was already disabled. Now, in google chrome, it says that the plugin that was blocked is /opt/google/chrome/libgcflashplayer.so when I toggle on and off the full screen mode on youtube (The video appears white but I can still hear the sound.) I went to check that file and I saw that there was no permissions set and it doesn't allow me to turn it on since I don't own that file.

    Try my extension FLASH-AID. It was designed to install the proper version of flash (which you already have) and fix conflicting plugin issues (which seems you don't have), but I have seen some people fixing other problems I wasn't expecting to fix with it.

    The extension executed normally but the problem wasn't fixed.
