Hi,

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="https://player.vimeo.com/video/171640925?title=0&byline=0&portrait=0" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

</li>

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.

Thanks!

I don't think that's possible in today's browsers. IE used to let you do it many years ago, but that feature was later removed.

I suppose you could resize the video to cover the viewport, but not remove the browser controls like when you press the F11 key.

Thanks for the response. This is turning out to be more difficult than I thought.

What about something like this site: http://www.maxmoorefilms.com/

I realize these videos are filling the window and not fullscreen, but I like the effect. I looked at the code and see that it's an embedded vimeo link, but I'm can't figure out how it's automatically filling the screen when it's clicked.

Thanks again.

Correction, it is: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Fullscreen_API

Seems like the potential for abuse is huge: http://feross.org/html5-fullscreen-api-attack/ wacko.gif

That didn't look very realistic, not even on my crap screen. tongue.gif

Also, K-mel didn't go into full screen mode. Iron and FF did.

Try this:

<video width="1920" height="1080" controls>
<source src="path to video\xxxxxx.mp4" type="video/mp4">

it will work without controls too. I edited my .mp4 to 1080x720 fills the screen not sure what the resolution is

That will only work if the user has exactly the same window size (or resolution, in a maximized window). Fullscreen means it should adapt to the user's screen regardless of resolution.
