No Video output

I tried uploading a video of the game to Youtube, there was a message box saying that the game will minimize and upload will happen after. This was followed all the game video disappearing. I gave up on the upload after a while and force quit the game. On restarting, I don't seem to get any video output (i.e. I can see my desktop wallpaper). I can hear the intro music, so the game is running, only I don't get any graphics output. The game was running in Fullscreen mode before I tried the upload. I tried restarting the game but I see no change. Please help!

I am on OSX (10.6.8) and on Steam (handle: hannofcart).

There's a thread around here with a solution - summat about some key combo that toggle between windowed mode and full screen, or something like that... (can you tell I don't use macs?)

[SOLVED] No Video output

Thanks Scorpion0x17. Toggling to windowed mode did the trick for me. Everything is fine now.
If only this post of mine were approved a little earlier, I wouldn't have had to wait for over a month to start playing again.
