How do you show the fullscreen button when the video is HD?  I see the button when the video is non-hd.

Which browser are you using? It might be a browser problem.

I can see the full screen button.

If you are watching the video not from you tube - then they might disable the controls - you can just right click on the video copy the URL to your browser and play it again, the controls should be available.

Also another method is while you click on the video press the letter F it should open it in full screen.

You're right.  It's the browser.  IE does not show it; Firefox does show it.  Is there a way to make this show no mater what browser is used?

If one shows it probably the other should show it as well.

Try to update the IE with latest updates. I'm using IE 10 (Update version 10.0.19) and can see the full screen button.

I'm using IE 11.0.9600.17498.  Microsoft must have changed the browser's behavior.

I found the solution.  Here it is.

Original Code:
  <iframe id="ytplayer" type="text/html" frameborder="0"/>

New Code:
  <iframe id="ytplayer" type="text/html" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen/>

Thanks for the update - i didn't understand from your link that you are embedding the movie in your own HTML and have problems with the full screen...
