Thanks to the Light Switch add-on for Firefox, you can hide any other content on the website you are looking for that is not some sort of multimedia.  Once you install and start using this extension, you can quickly "turn off the lights" when watching videos or checking out pictures too.

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.
