It is not working with Youtube or the web. Is there a setting somewhere for this?

Thanks.

Pull the notification drawer and check at the top if "Screen Rotation" is disabled - tap to enable it. If it is already enabled then see if a reboot fixes it. (Mine has done this twice - stops rotating, reboot fixes it.)

Screen rotation is bugged as hell on my Note 2. Gets stuck pretty often. I googled it and found a fix that seems to work - do anything that brings up the keyboard and it'll start working again.

It's pretty annoying though, hope they sort this in a future update.

This is literally the only annoyance I have with my Note 2. It's rare, but it does happen (usually in the browser). So thank you for this workaround! I'll have to give it a try the next time it happens.
