I have this strange overlay when trying to view some, but not all, youtube videos (screenshot attached) that stops me from selecting many options like CC, full-screen, video quality etc. Can anyone tell me how to turn this off? 

The close button in the top-right does nothing when I click it.

I can't find any forum posts about it either, so sorry if I duplicate another post.
