Watching my (Samsung) smart TV and suddenly the youtube videos all have a black box overlaying part of the video and it shows a list of info and technical data

Video ID:
Dimensions:
Resolution:
Volume:
Stream Host:
Stream Type:

etc.

The videos play but this is annoying to say the least.

What did I do to make this happen and more importantly how do I get rid of this?



I tried looking for help from Youtube but no joy there.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hover over the lower right corner of the video, see if you see a gear, click on it, see if you get any joy playing with the settings.

Thanks Harry. Great suggestion but not the one that worked. I finally fixed it, mostly with a bit of luck.
