    Have you tried Chrome or Firefox? Have you opted in to the html5 trial on youtube? If your video is playing in Flash, just about anything can (and usually will) happen. If your video is playing in a plug-in-free browser, chances are you won't have to put up with any nonsense.

    I use Chrome as my main browser with "click to play" enforced and adblock and flashblock enabled to tamp down all those ads, popovers, popunders, strange noises coming from tabs I thought were inactive, etc.
