Hello
I have this problem
Whenever I play youtube videos with firefox, everything is alright unless I expand screen size to full screen size. If I do that, then the video gets stopped until I reduce the size of the video again.

Any suggestion to fix this?
Thanks

my crystal ball (wild guess syndrome as you didn't put in the specs of the pc) says it may be a ram issue? Also have you tried using IE?

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

It works fine with IE. I have a desktop PC with Core Quad Q6600 intel processor 2,4Ghz (4 proccessors built in motherboard), 2GB of RAM and Windows Vista Home Premium.
The vido playing in full screen size works fine with IE.
Any other idea?
Thanks

I meant, the problem with the videos getting stopped under full screen mode in firefox was solved by disabling hardware acceleration. However, the problem of not playing the sound of these videos keep happening. Any ideas to fix the sound issue under firefox?
I do hear the sound in videos when these are played by internet explorer 8.
Thanks

... r/click screen again which version of flashplayer do you have?

1. play a Youtube video
2. Click the volume icon in the Windows task bar.
3. Click Mixer. The Volume Mixer window will appear.
4. Make sure the Firefox slider isn't at the bottom.
