It has happened since yesterday, every times I pause the videos when playing on full screen after leave it play without touching anything about 8-10 seconds (the audio stops too) and the similar thing happens when I move my cursor around after not touching it for a while but it just a black screen pops up for a second and gone, the audio just stutters when black screen pops up. Please, it is very disturbing when I need to pause a video, any help will be appreciated.
Note 1. I'm currently using windows 10, cpu: i7-6700HQ, gpu: GeForce gtx690m, ram: 8 Gb.
         2. I've tried disable hardware acceleration  in Google Chrome's settings, installed lastest version of video card driver, allow youtube to use Adobbe flash player, nothing help.
         3. The same thing doesn't happen if I use IE though.
         4. I'm not sure if I post this on the right forum (first time on bleeping computer)

Hi, I just met a similar problem: whenever I pause the video which is playing in full screen, it turns black and returns normal after about 3 seconds. This only happens with Chrome. I was thinking if you have just updated your Windows? It looks they have made a major update on Windows 10 recently, which is probably the cause - since I came across the problem not until recently. Did you solve this problem?
