Unfortunately, you are not alone. Yours is the third of fourth post regarding full screen mode using Flash in the past several days.
You may find help at the Adobe site here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/
For time being, use Firefox or Chromium until Adobe can write a fix for this.
This user's Safari is actually crashing in full screen mode. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2512720&tstart=0
The more complaints Adobe receives regarding this issue, the better.
There are lots of us who do not have problems with the new Flash
and running full-screen videos from YouTube or anywhere else.
In addition, you're just having problems with the Dock & MenuBar showing, right?
The videos themselves run fine???
Do you know of anything that changed on your Mac yesterday?
Any new apps, or internet plugins? Did you update anything?
Thanks for the quick replies!
You see, that's the weird thing! I'm having no playback issues whatsoever when i go full screen (which is what i found when reading around other people's problems), and until the other day, everything was perfect. I didn't install/change anything, it literally happened at random when i launched safari towards the end of the day.. Strange thing is, if i click anything on the menubar during full screen, and then click onto the video, the menubar disappears, but then re-appears each time i go back to window mode, and then full screen again.... Its sooo strange! I tried posting this on the gala flash player forum, but the weird thing is, it won't let me post there for some reason lol.. Gonna have to keep trying...
Note that an updated version, Safari 5.0.1, was released July 28, 2010.
You can download it direct from here:
where you can also read about the various improvements etc.
Note that installation will require a restart of your Mac.
Try that and see if there is any improvement.
You absolute legend!! I tried that once or twice, but it didn't seem to do the trick - but i did a third time, and looks like third time's the charm! Thanks a bunch man - I was almost thinking of switching browsers because of this!
Thanks to the other repliers as well.. I have no idea what the **** i'd do without you helpful lot on these forums!
