I'm using Brackets to try and build a site and embedding a vimeo video into a page. I'd like it to automatically play in full screen when the play button is clicked.

Here's a brief section of my code where I'm using an iframe:

<li class="video-container">

<iframe src="" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>


If I preview the page and click the play button, it will play in the page (not fullscreen) and there's the option to click on the fullscreen button. If I open the developer tools (in Chrome) and refresh the page, it will then work like I want it to. I click on the play button and it automatically opens in fullscreen mode and starts playing. Why will it only do this if I open the developer tools and refresh?

Does this have anything to do with the type of vimeo account that I'm getting the embed code from? I believe it's just the basic, free account.

Hopefully I'm explaining this right. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
