View YouTube video in full browser window
Authored by: mantrid on Jun 19, '09 10:21:58AM

I don't know why anyone would want to watch YouTube in full-screen mode either but that isn't what this hint is about anyway.

full browser window != full screen

By switching to full window mode using this hint or the arrow icon mentioned by the other poster, you can more easily resize the video to whatever size you want because no matter what size the window is resized to, the video resizes to fill it to the largest possible size that maintains the aspect ratio.

One example is making the window smaller. The standard view adds scrollbars, the video stays the same size, and you can't see the full image at once. With this hint, the video shrinks with the window so nothing is cut off and you can fit more videos on the screen at once, plus everything looks sharper.
