On a fresh install of elementary OS Freya 0.3.2, Midori crashes repeatedly, when I am trying to play a full screen YouTube video. It works fine in the normal mode. Also, I installed the codecs that it asked to install the first time I tried playing a YouTube video. I have not updated the system even once. Also, the player used is the HTML player.

    Did my answer work? – Suici Doga Mar 7 '16 at 8:38
  • So did you upgrade Midori or use Chrome or Firefox – Suici Doga Mar 7 '16 at 14:44
  • Both. However, using Chrome was much better than the upgraded Midori. – user922 Mar 8 '16 at 3:03
  • Yes, I use Chrome too – Suici Doga Mar 8 '16 at 3:33
  • Please update youtube to the latest version – Viviana Mar 19 at 22:34

Midori is very about of date and old.The only solution is to install Chrome or Firefox or wait for elementary OS Loki (which should update it)
