YouTube video freezes whenever I try it to play the video in full screen in my Ubuntu Maverick. It has been like that for a long time now and we have a solution finally.

How to Fix YouTube Video Freeze While in Fullscreen in Ubuntu 10.10?
  • The fix is rather easy. Simply do the following in Teriminal.
sudo mkdir /etc/adobe 
echo "OverrideGPUValidation=true" >~/mms.cfg 
sudo mv ~/mms.cfg /etc/adobe/
  • Done. That fixed things for me. And if you have missed the video in the screenshot, well, here is it - Java4Ever Movie Trailer. It's a must watch.
