I have a weird issue. Firefox won't play YouTube videos correctly. It plays the sound just fine, but some videos go to half-size and then jump back to fill the YouTube player window. Please click the pic below to see a larger image.

Notice how it doesn't stretch to fit the player window. The video plays and keeps jumping back and forth. Many of these videos are old favorites that I love. They played just fine before.

I have tried (as a fix):
Installing the latest version of Flash for Firefox.
Installing the latest version of Shockwave.
Clearing the cache.
The videos play fine in Internet Explorer and IETab, but flickers in fullscreen mode.
Dxdiag seems to indicate no problems.

Browser: Firefox 2.0.0.7 (don't like Firefox 3)
Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 2.
AMD Athlon 1.33 GHz
512 MB RAM
256 MB GeForce FX 5200 knockoff (PNY Verto)

So, my question is: Is there a fix for this?

Okay, as nearly as I can tell, the flash plug-in got corrupted.

I uninstalled what I had and downloaded Adobe Flash Player 9 from the Adobe site (the one for Netscape) and that fixed the problem.

Adobe Flash Player 10 may be out of beta, but it's horribly buggy, like most of Adobe's stuff.

So, I guess we mark this one solved.

He pretty much removed, uninstalled his adobe flash player (version 9), the one out is probably version 10, and then installed a new one (reinstalled the same thing).
