The issue in GetHuman-rbakhit's own words
Whenever I watch a YouTube video, the screen goes black but the audio is still playing in the background. If i move my cursor where the video is playing, the screen plays the video but the cursor must be moving. If i move the cursor outside of where the video is playing, the screen turns black again. This only happens on some videos, not all. I am using a HP Pavillion laptop. How do i resolve this issue?
GetHuman-rbakhit did not yet indicate what YouTube should do to make this right.
