Youtube HTML5 black screen?! karmajuney 4/12/12 6:37 PM
When i turn on youtube in html5 it gives me a black screen and I can only hear the audio. When i disabled HTML5 it worked fine, turned it back on and got black screen again. I was really enjoying HTML5 its a shame i ca't run it.
Using-Windows 7, google chrome, great internet, newest adobe flash, and virus scanned and I don't have any viruses. Any solutions?

this is due to hardware acceleration, make sure you are running latest chrome stable (or your choice) and latest properly installed graphics drivers. and try again, i have this same issue in linux, a temp fix would to be wrench icon > tools > task manager (this is chrome task manager) look for gpu proccess and end it (may take 2-5 times) and bam u can rewind and keep watching.

this is because html5 sucks and they should have never switched to it flash is the shit and never gives me issues like html5 does. i purposely  made sure my browser doesent support html5 so i dont have this issue. its forced to use flash instead.
