right click on a video and go to settings (flash settings), disable hardware acceleration and see if that fixes it.

If it does it means the decoder chip on your GPU is faulty. RMA it.

it could also be a bad video driver.

I know that lately I have been having issues with youtube when switching between browser and full-screen mode, and it happens on multiple machines, so some of this may be some youtube growing pains.

I must say, try the driver thing I guess, worth a shot, however I notice that there is a real issue with mid-range GFX cards recently.

there is such price pressure to compete here that I think manufacturers are skimping where they think it isn't too obvious, like the video decoders and GDDR chips. people pay for the GPU, not the brand of GDDR, so they will buy as cheap as they can and run as close to the limit as possible.

Just a casual observation of the trends I see on these forums.
