Basically as above since updating chrome, youtube doesn't run in Full Screen, in either Metro or Desktop modes, basically the window doesn't change size from the larger size when I click the full screen button, the page just goes black (see screenshot)

Any ideas on what's causing this?

Are you using HTML5 youtube by any chance? Occasionally I find that I'm on the HTML5 version (dunno why) and fullscreen (among many other things) breaks.

No I'm using the Flash version, oddly the HTML 5 version seems to work better

As Blerk said it could be the HTML5 player, I still find it to be pretty buggy and regularly have problems getting a video to load in 1080p and sometimes have a different full screen issue where it only takes up the browser screen and scales with it instead of being true full screen. 

 

EDIT: Just seen your reply, does it do it with other browsers also which release channel are you on?

Ahh Ashens, I sent him something nearly a year ago and he still hasn't reviewed it,  :cry:. Told me to expect the review Christmas last year.

It doesn't work at all in my other browser (internet explorer) this probably because Chrome comes with Flash so I didn't install the system wide version of flash. 

 

I have chrome Version 28.0.1500.72 m

I get this from time to time with Youtube. I have to fully close (inc task manager exe's) Chrome and then open Chrome again it works OK. Hardly a solution, but more of a temporary fix.

Chrome got annoying recently. I used to have Netflix zoomed to 150% before, and it would show the actual video player at 100%. Now it zoome the video player cutting off the video and putting the video controls outside the picture.
