The talk about Firefox 3.5 supporting the HTML 5 support for playing videos without the need of a player was pretty sweet. Seeing it in action, now that I have Firefox 3.5 installed is even sweeter. You know what would put the icing on the cake? If I could make those videos go to full screen resolutions.
The Full Screen Video add-on for Firefox does that. Once installed, it adds a “Full Screen” menu option, when you right-click on any HTML5 powered video. As of right now the only two known issues with this awesome extension are:
- When switching to full screen, the video will load and play from the start.
- Full screen is really only implemented on Windows at this point. On other operating systems, it’s merely a maximized window.
Other than that Full Screen Video gives you a simple addition to an already awesome feature of Firefox. You can pickup this add-on via the Firefox Add-ons web site or check out the official web site for more information on the project.
