Weird YouTube problem

Okay, this is really weird and I can't find any info about it on Google (and I don't know what terms I should search anyway). For the past two days whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube in fullscreen, it just puts the video in the upper-left corner of the screen and makes the rest of the screen black, like this:


It's really weird because fullscreen videos worked perfectly fine until yesterday morning.

Googling "youtube won't play fullscreen videos" just gets me advice for what to do if the screen is completely black (or white) which isn't the problem I have. (I did try that advice anyway--which was basically to uncheck the hardware acceleration box in Settings after right-clicking the video--and it didn't help) Also tried doing a CClean and that didn't help either. I can't think of what else I should try for this.
