Make HTML 5 Videos Go Full Screen

Full Screen HTML 5 Videos 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.
