Youtube video controls never hide in full screen mode

  • Noticed recently that Youtube doesn't hide playback controls (play/pause, seek bar, volume etc) when in full screen mode in Opera 48.0.2685.52. It just stays on forever. I had Youtube HD extension, but after removing it, nothing changes. Tried same video in Edge and controls auto hid themselves in like 2 seconds being in full screen. Please fix this, it's really annoying.

  • I literally came here to make a thread about this same issue, it started happening 2 days ago for me. Glad to see i'm not the only one.

  • YouTube is aware of the issue and working on a fix
