You Tube Video Full Screen Problems

YouTube is largest video sharing website on the web.

Problems switching to Full Screen

  • Whenever Users click full screen icon on a video, the video reloads again and  deletes the already buffered data.  So users with slow download speed have to wait  on switching to full screen and back
  • In Full Screen Mode user cannot do other tasks as freely , you have to exit to do other things
How to Fix ?

Changing User Settings

 

  • YouTube videos are played at 360p by default
but when a User clicks on Full Screen icon the video gets changed to 480p for video quality and buffer is reloaded.
  1. Login to your YouTube Account
  2. Go to settings > Playback Setup and check the option  “I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video”
  3. Save Changes
You Tube Full Screen Settings
Now the video will not reload when you are logged in.

 

GreaseMonkey Script

  • If you are using Firefox then you can solve this problem by installing a user script for Grease Monkey
  1. Install GreaseMonkey addon on Firefox
  2. Install this User Script http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/49366 (Buffers the video without autoplaying, removes in-video ads, and puts it in hd if the option is on) on Greasemonkey.
Rebuffering problem will be solved

 

Stretch to Browser’s Size (Best Way)

 

  • One more way to solve the full screen problem and multi-tasking while playing video is to stretch the Video to occupy your Browser’s window.
  1. Open a YouTube video like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC_M6PzXS9g
  2. Rewrite this URL to http://www.youtube.com/v/hC_M6PzXS9g .   Just copy the UniqueID (hC_M6PzXS9g in above example) and go to URL http://www.youtube.com/v/UniqueID
  3. Now you can resize the window to any size without rebuffering and switch to other tabs and tasks without any problems
