Full screen video fails


After opening a full screen video with hulu or news clips (I assume flash player), the video flashes for a about 2 seconds and then closes back to the smaller size.

Has anyone else experienced this, or does someone have suggestions as to what I need to be chasing?

Thanks.

Oh, running Slackware 13.0 (KDE 4.2.2).

Are you using Firefox? What version of the Flash plug-in is installed? (I have 10.0.45.2 on my Gentoo box, and it seems to work great, full-screen or otherwise.)

Yes, I used Firefox and Seamonkey.

Trying again, I did get full screen video to run. After a couple of hours audio went corrupt. I'm digging into that now.

With regards to network loading / bandwidth and latency issues, as well as system resources, I understand that, and believe the system and connection to be rather unloaded at the time.

It's a new install, so I will go digging further to find out what is flakey.
