video full-screen problem

    I've been watching videos and webcams on my three WinXP computers--two of
    them using IE7 and one using IE8. I'm having a problem with one of the IE7
    computers.

    Until recently, I was able to toggle full-screen on and off. For the last
    several days, however, when I click on "Toggle fullscreen" on one of the
    computers, I get nothing but a blank white screen. The other two computers
    are working fine.

    Any idea of what could be wrong?

    Thank you!

    If it's a Flash Video file that results in a blank white screen when you
    toggle it to full screen, you may need to uncheck hardware acceleration in
    the Flash Player .

    While viewing a Flash Video in it's normal window, right click on the video
    and choose "Settings". Then remove the checkmark from "Use Hardware
    Acceleration".

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell

    Thank you, Donald! I can't find a Hardware Acceleration setting, though--at
    least not by name. What I see is a slider bar for "Local storage: How much
    information can xxx store on your computer?" The slider appears to be at
    100KB, although below that it says "Currently used: 11KB."

    There are five icons at the bottom of the settings screen, but there are no
    labels. The icon farthest left looks like a monitor with something in the
    center, the next a monitor with two somethings in the center, the next an
    open folder, the next a kite or perhaps a mouse, and the farthest right a
    crystal ball. (My descriptions are probably wrong, but they're the closest I
    can come to what appears.)

    Is one of these icons what I need to click on to stop hardware acceleration?

    For what it's worth, this problem may have started when I did a Flash Player
    update.

    Thank you again!

    Click on that icon at the far left that looks like a monitor screen, the
    hardware acceleration setting should be on that tab.

    Good luck,
