Full screen HTML 5 YouTube video on secondary screen makes primary screen unusable.

  • Hi

    When I open YT video on secondary monitor and go fullscreen then my primary monitor goes black.

    Yosemite 10.10.5
    GTX 770 with nVidia web drivers 346.02.03f01
    Primary screen Full HD on DVI
    Secondary screen XGA projector on HDMI
    "Use hardware acceleration when available" checked

    BTW: It works (primary screen is usable) when playing video using Flash, but I want to avoid this technology since I'm not a hipster.

  • Hi @bbkr-org, this is due to how OS X's full screen functionality works. You'll see the same when you try putting QuickTime Player videos or even Opera itself or any other application in full screen mode. You can change it by going to System Preferences -> Mission Control and checking "Displays have separate Spaces".

    As you've probably guessed by now, this is because Flash doesn't use OS X's full screen mode :)
