[Resolved] [Plugin: Shadowbox JS] Full Screen for YouTube

  • I have been using the Shadowbox plugin for quite some time. I have been patiently waiting for them to implement the option to turn on full screen for YouTube Videos. I’ve been away for a little while now and just came back to see that in Version 3.0.0.0 the Full Screen in YouTube is now supported. I’ve looked everywhere I can, about how to get this to work, as a lot of my customers are really adamant about having things full screen, and haven’t been able to find any reference to how this can be resolved. Can anyone give me a little insight as to how or what I should use in order to enable or turn on the full screen option for YouTube Videos?

    Here is an example of the code I am using. Basically it’s a small pic associated with the video and when clicked it opens up the video in the shadowbox.

    <a title="Part 1" rel="shadowbox;width=640;height=385" href="http://www.youtube.com/v/FkbqYHZxzn0"><img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/FkbqYHZxzn0/1.jpg" alt="Part 1" width="75" height="75" />

    Forever in your debt if you can help me solve this issue.

    Cheers

    You need to add the proper query string to the youtube URL to tell it to include the fullscreen button. Something similar to this:

    <a title="Part 1" rel="shadowbox;width=640;height=385" href="http://www.youtube.com/v/FkbqYHZxzn0?fs=1"><img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/FkbqYHZxzn0/1.jpg" alt="Part 1" width="75" height="75" />

    Notice the addition of fs=1 to the end of the url.

    Thanks Matt. That added the full screen button…..however, pressing the full screen button does nothing. It’s there but it doesn’t go to full screen when clicked on.

    What am I doing wrong?

    hi, i have the same problem 😉
    tried to find something over the internet but no success
    i can apply the button but it doesn’t go…
    if you go to mediafire.com they let you see a tour video in a similar shadowbox-thickbox window…and the video is able to go fullscreen…
    how to do it with shadowbox for wordpress?
    thank you

    Sorry, seems I forgot that you need to force the player as SWF:

    <a title="Part 1" rel="shadowbox;width=640;height=385;player=swf;" href="http://www.youtube.com/v/FkbqYHZxzn0?fs=1"><img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/FkbqYHZxzn0/1.jpg" alt="Part 1" width="75" height="75" />

    That should take care of the issue.

    Thanks Matt!

    It’s working perfectly now.

    haha someone told it was impossible… impossible is nothing! you’re the man 🙂 thanks
