I'm not able to play youtube videos in fullscreen consistently. I was able to play the video above in fullscreen only once. After that, whenever I start playing the video and go into fullscreen using the video control the video seems to stop, and the video controls don't seem to respond. ESC'ing gets me out of it, and I can resume playing the video in normal mode.

I'm using Flash 10.2r152

Steps:
1. Visit url, and play video
2. Go into fullscreen using the video control and let it play.
3. Try another video and as it plays go into fullscreen using the video control.

Expected: Video plays in fullscreen

Actual: Video stops playing.
3. When it's done playing ESC to get out of fullscreen.

adding a couple of folks who might get a look at this before the next blocker nom triage session.
I suspect this is a dupe but I don't know how to find an existing bug for this

bug 606481 or bug 577540 maybe?

AFAIK that version is only available for IA32, so I guess you are using nspluginwrapper?

I don't think we can block on issues specific to nspluginwrapper.

There are 64-bit Flash previews available here:
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

We can investigate if the same problem happens with that 64-bit plugin or with a 32-bit browser.
Summary: unable to play fullscreen videos in linux consistently → unable to play fullscreen Flash videos with nspluginwrapper on linux consistently

Resolving old bugs which are likely not relevant any more, since NPAPI plugins are deprecated.
