I'm using Opera, and have flash regularly update itself, just to make things clear.

For a few months now, youtube seems to have changed its embed code or its policy towards embedded videos. I can on several occasions no longer watch youtube videos in Fullscreen mode, because there is no button for it. this is essentially the tl,dr.

Ive had this in very different versions: sometimes there is no fullscreen button, but a youtube button which lets me switch to watching the video on youtubes site. not great, but acceptable.
On other occasions, there isn't even a youtube button, all I can do is select resolutions, which makes no bloody sense then. I can double-click as any savvy person would try, which only makes the picture increase in size ever so slightly.

anyone else experiencing this?

I've had some weird Youtube issues lately as well using Firefox and Chrome. Try this:

Go to http://www.youtube.com/html5
join the HTML5 trial

See if that fixes you up. If not, go back to that same page and opt out of the trial.
