I would show you all a picture of how the Youtube window looks, but I do not have enough reputation. The video is displayed as a small player to the top right of the designated area. A very large portion of the designated area is just black because it appears the player has shrunken. The options of the video are also displayed oddly, as the "larger player" and "full screen" options are missing and the options layout is much different than I have experienced before converting my computer to Ubuntu 11.10. I believe that it is a flaw, and I was wondering if it could be fixed.

Do you have NVidia graphic card? Try to install a proper driver, the latest one would be preferred.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

"System info" says that I have a "Gallium 0.4 on ATI RS480" for graphics. Am I correct in saying that that is not a graphics card? I believed that graphics cards were specialties on some computers and not all contained them. – George Apr 3 '12 at 23:06
