Youtube problems on full screen.Video size small w/ borders

Postby mad-k on Sat Dec 15, 2012 4:39 am

Hi to all,

I have a cinnamon mint 14 32-bit installed on a DELL E5420 laptop with an external monitor. I haven't installed a flash plugin or graphics card drivers, the installation of the system is default, out of the box.

1st problem:When I play a youtube video on fullscreen the video is small with black borders around. Here is a screenshot http://postimage.org/image/grn7nqu3b/ It seems that this issue is circulating around in the forum with no solution so far!

2nd problem: When I play a youtube video on full screen and click anywhere on the desktop on the other monitor, flash video exits full screen.

My System info
Code: Select all
inxi -Gx
Graphics: Card: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller bus-ID: 00:02.0
X.Org: 1.13.0 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa), Resolution: 1366x768@60.0hz, 1680x1050@60.0hz
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2, GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 9.0 , Direct Rendering: Yes

Thank you in advance

Ha! i have the exact same thing as your 1st problem and dont have a clue on what to do to fix it, suprisingly enough its not with alle video's as some play perfectly fine which are in High Definition i believe.
So in that aspect i think it could be a scaling issue?

I'm having this exact problem.
My "inxi -Gx":
Code: Select all
Graphics:  Card-1: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller bus-ID: 00:02.0
           Card-2: NVIDIA GF119M [GeForce GT 520MX] bus-ID: 01:00.0
           X.Org: 1.13.3 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) FAILED: nouveau,intel Resolution: 1366x768@60.0hz, 1360x768@60.4hz
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Mobile GLX Version: 1.4 (3.0 Mesa 9.1.3) Direct Rendering: No"

I'm running 15 "Olivia" with MATE, and Chromium.

The "letterbox" view of videos been particularly annoying. But, also, as someone who works (or plays :lol:) on one monitor best whilst passively viewing something on another, the drop out of full screen is probably more annoying.

Postscript: HTML5 videos on YouTube (limited to ad-free videos on YouTube) and JupiterBroadcasting remain in full screen and don't produce the letterbox view.
