Full screen video content

Feb 09, 2017

Hi everyone,

I was wondering about having the option/capability to watch a video on full screen.

For example: place a video file into the presentation, and while watching it, have the option to play at full screen.

Is this an function to switch on prior to publishing, or is this something related to the actual video file itself? On a previous platform, the user was able to play the same video files in full screen.

It will be very useful to have the option of adding a button to enlarge the video full-screen on a case-by-case basis. I agree with many users here in this post; sometimes the full-screen feature is needed when trying to display a video that has detail that can be unreadable at any other size than the full-screen size.

It's very frustrating that we get 360 VR support but not a full screen video button for intergated video files. I was communicating with our 3rd party resller of storyline who had contacted Articulate, and was told that this adding this isn't on the to do list yet - despite being on this thread for years ans alos no doubt multple feature requests (I've done it at least twice)

Hi Maria,

I'm with Erin here. This must surely be a simple function to implement. Articulate has obviously spent a lot of time implementing the 360 VR feature, which is a "oh it can do that if I ever need it" feature.

A Full screen option is a function that is critical for embedded video files for those of us that want to keep video integral to our course and not embedded via a separate streaming site. Our course has over 20 hours of video content, so you can imagine how frustrating it is for us and our customers that this fundamental feature - which I believe is also an important "Accessibility" function, has not been included OR even is not on the "roadmap" as yet.

Articulate needs to give an open and honest answer as to why it isn't.
