For the last year and a half I’ve been working at Brightcove, helping build out their Flash front-end. Last week I got to add fullscreen functionality to the brightcove.com video player – before youTube, google video etc :). Fullscreen mode is accessible via the full-screen button or by right click. Check out an example below.
It was fairly straight-forward to implement following the documentation. One thing to note is that keyboard input is disabled in fullscreen mode due to security restrictions, which means we had disable the video overlay menu functionality. Since fullscreen mode requires at least Flash v9.0.18, users with earlier versions are prompted to upgrade in the SWF via express install.
