Sad Galaxy S2 blacks out while watching videos

I just purchased the Samsung Galaxy SII a week ago and have noticed that while watching videos from Youtube or other sites and/or apps, the videos will begin on a blacked-out screen. It happens on a large majority of the videos I click on. The video screen will be completely blacked out but I can still hear the audio just fine. The problem seems to also freeze up the controls a bit, as well. What makes the whole thing worse is that since the video controls are located on the video screen, I cannot turn the video off, pause it or even mute it...so I'm stuck listening to a video I cannot see. Anybody experiencing the same problem? Know how to fix it?

well if you hold the phone in right side up doesn't it show the the vid small with comments and stuff below it? does it do this when you have a bad signal? what about if you connect to a good wifi source?
