            <RowStyle BackColor="#E3EAEB" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="10pt" />

            <EditRowStyle BackColor="#7C6F57" />

            <PagerStyle BackColor="#666666" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />

            <HeaderStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" Font-Bold="True" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt"

                <Columns>

                    <asp:ButtonField CommandName="LaunchVideo" Text="Launch Video" />

                </Columns>

             

            </asp:GridView>
 

Code
 

protected void gvVideos_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)

    {

        if (e.CommandName == "LaunchVideo")

        {
 

            string URL="",VideoType="",sScript="";
 

            URL = gvVideos.Rows[int.Parse(e.CommandArgument.ToString())].Cells[5].Text;

            sScript = "<script language=javascript>" + " " + "window.open(" + "\"" + URL + "\"" +

                    ",null," + "\" toolbar=no, menubar=no, directories=no, resizable=yes, location=yes, status=yes, scrollbars=0 " + "\"" +

                    "); window.resizeTo (screen.availWidth, screen.availHeight);window.moveTo(0,0);" + " </script>";
 

            Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "Startup", sScript, true);
 
 
 
 
 

        }

You need set the last parameter of the RegisterClientScriptBlock to false.
Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "Startup", sScript,false);
