I seem to have a problem when viewing BBC Video Clips. They display in a small screen OK but if I click the Full screen button on the lower right the screen view changes to a full scceen with a very small picture in the middle about 3 in x 2 in
I uninstalled Adobe Flash player and tried again. The BBC link I tried to view siad I needed a flash player "click install". I then installed a fresh version of the flash player (ver 184.108.40.206) Unfortunately the fix has not cured the problem. I still get a little picture in a full screen view. I tried viewing BBCi Player but this is normal and working well. Utube and Flixxy are fine also. It seems to be just BBC Video.(News etc.)
Everything worked well a few days ago. Has a recent windows update caused a problem?
I had the same problem. It seems the BBC have broken their video player whilst making various upgrades in time for the World Cup.
As far as I know, this problem occurs on 16:9 widescreen displays. I have a dual monitor setup, and full screen only works on my 16:10 screen - not on my 16:9 (laptop) screen. I've confirmed this theory with my dad and brother's screens.
So, until the BBC fix it, you might want to try using a 16:10 resolution, something like 1280x800, 1440x900, 1680z1050, etc - whatever suits your screen best and is similar to your existing resolution. Whilst image quality probably won't be quite as good (you might not want to set your graphics drivers to not stretch the image and just settle for the letter-boxing effect) at least full screen will work.
