Is this the flash or the HTML5 player?

Have the same problem. I have a Windows 8 with 1920x1080 desktop. All of Youtube videos have tiny controls when using Flash. Sample screenshot:

I am also having this issue however mine appears small on all websites including YouTube. However, if I install "YouTube ALL HTML5" the controls return to normal size on youtube. I have not figured out a fix for other websites.

I've got this issue too. It looks like it's making all flash-powered objects much smaller than they should be.

(No response from the reporter, but three other people said it's Flash.)

exact same issue. new laptop, no change in adobe settings, happened right from the start.
Adobe fine on IE.
also running at very high resolution. seems clear to me that is related to the problem

Also see Bug 1128632. It's the same issue. 

Here are two screenshots, one from Firefox and another from Chrome.

I don't experience this issue in Chrome.

I know that there's some collaborative feature work happening on the high DPI front between Flash and Firefox at the moment, but I'm not directly involved.  I'm assuming that this is related.

Some of this should be taken care of by bug 820831 (landed in FF 51, will also need Flash Player 24). However, we're still having some problems with youtube flash, outlined in bug 1323818. Since I've already got QA comments there, I'm marking this one as a dupe of bug 1323818 and we'll continue work there.
