I thought it was just my computer but I am at a customers house now just testing their broadband speed and noticed they too get the black box in the full screen picture when playing tvnz ondemand 

Does anyone else see it?

FYI, above post was using Firefox 31, just tried in Chrome and all is ok, still line in Firefox, might be flash related as Firefox and Chrome are using different versions.

Good luck

Yep I get this in Chrome and Firefox - sometimes it works properly if before going full screen I scroll down so that the progress bar is just out of view and then go full screen.

Are you using an ad blocker? Probably the issue.

Great - thanks for that; it was getting REALLY annoying, and I just hadn't quite figured that one out.
