Hi,

There's a very detailed list of the options available from Google's developer website at https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters#controls.  I added the "fs" and "controls" options to your code, and it seems like it's doing what you're looking for.  (Your code below, with the added options).

<html>
<body>
<div style="text-align:center">
  <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/2uy6_Pc8BUA?autoplay=1&loop=1&playlist=2uy6_Pc8BUA&fs=1&controls=0"
   width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

I hope this helps!

Hi thanks for your help.  The controls are gone which is good but the video still doesn't start in full screen.  i'm not sure if this is possible with embedded youtube clips.

I can still see the address bar and browser.  I was hoping to have the clip open in complete full screen.  like it is if i double click on the clip

thanks
