Hi,

I have a youtube video and would like the video to be played at full screen when the user presses the play button.

Here is my embed code for better clarification.

<object width="420" height="315" style="background-color:#FFFFFF">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/p6hqVHb5d90?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/p6hqVHb5d90?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>   

Open in new window


Thanks,

You can't - it requires user interaction.
There is nothing in the API for it.

What about using an iframe?

I don't want to adjust the user's screen, I just want to play the video full screen (whatever deminision it is in)

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/p6hqVHb5d90?rel=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Open in new window


When I put the url in a browser it comes up in full screen.

Is there no way to get rid of the width="420" height="315" with an onclick event?

Thanks!
