Flash player full screen mode broken with nVidia?
 
Hi there,

when I play a video on Youtube and switch to fullscreen mode the video actually does not expand over the whole screen.

This did not happen with a AMD/ATI system, thus I guess this is a nVidia issue. Can someone confirm this fullscreen isssue? My nephew can perfectly switch to fullscreen with his AMD/ATI setup and it really uses the whole screen.

My setup:
GeForce 210 mobile
Firefox 11
295.40 drivers x86_64

Thanx
Malte

No this has nothing to do with 'broken' flash, it is a problem with youtube only and it is caused when used with twinview. I don't remember the exact cause - probably has to do with how twinview presents the total resolution but since it happens only on youtube I would expect youtube to fix it's code.

I have a notebook, connected to an external 22" screen. How can I see, whether I use twinview? I have attached my xorg.conf, is there any sign I have twinview enabled?

What could I do different to avoid twinview? I only want to use my external 22", I do not need to use the notebook´s screen.

my xorg.conf:

You can try disabling the internal panel in nvidia-settings. Or change the MetaMode in your configuration to not include your DFP. As gbil said, Youtube computes the aspect ratio of the fullscreen video using the aspect of the total desktop area rather than just the display you're maximizing on, resulting in this problem. I'm assuming the AMD configuration you were referring to was single-display?

I did it now this way, I just have set the CRT first:

Code:

Option        "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" "CRT-0"
and I left the metamodes just as they were before:

Code:

Option        "metamodes" "DFP: 1600x900_60 +0+0, CRT: 1680x1050_60 +0+0"

This way it works now! I can now switch to fullscreen with flash and the whole screen of the external monitor is used!

Yes, you are right. This was a AMD C-50 based netbook with one single screen, the internal DFP.

Thanx for you hints and information!
