Full screen video playback is broken on youtube

  • Good morning, I need your help to fix this error.
    Well, it turns out that since the last YouTube update, it works fatal for me.
    try:
    -reset to all default
    -remove the only extension I have (adblock plus)
    -Search if you had the same problem in other browsers
    but even so, the problem continues when I use my youtube account, if I log in without accessing an account, the problem disappears.
    the problem in question is:
    -Full screen video playback is broken
    -When I use "open link in another tab", it gets corrupted in the same way.
    -the problem persists if I use a different account.
    I would appreciate if you could help me.

  • @eleazarsc19 You never say what exactly happens. I'll presume "works fatal" means crashes Opera (though that isn't really clear), but you don't say when it crashes - how to reproduce the issue.

  • @sgunhouse Hello! I have the same issue, what the OP describes as 'works fatal' means that you can't scroll up or down, and clicking on the 'full screen mode' makes the entire page bigger. Also, the link of the video clicked changes after a few seconds to 'www.youtube.com'.

    The problem starts whenever a video is opened in a new tab, the issue could be reproduced by adding an ad-blocker extension such as AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin (which is the one I had and asumed was the culprit, but after disabling it, uninstalling, reinstalling, uninstalling again and restoring the browser several times, the problem was still there).

    This is how my browser looks as well, the video is merged with YouTube's frontpage: alt text

  • @themango Any idea what that message box behind the video says?
