Yes, I found in order to get the YouTube video to play full screen then you must make sure the web address is in this format:


Replace the videoname with the name of your video e.g. bf3vORd2rgs.

https://www.youtube.com/v/  this address being your base then add video name.

Your address might reflect some path through bing or another search engine which you will need to change.

In Storyline 2 then also make sure the "player" settings are set to full screen and browser controls enabled as well.

When the file is exported to a LMS Scorm 1.2 all works fine. Have not tested all other publishing formats yet.

Hope this helps you.

Michael: One last item. Ensure you press "Alt" and "Enter" keys 1) soon as player starts (to maximize the player to full screen) 2) after a video plays (which allows you to close video) and 3) again on player resumption, to maximize the player to full screen again. The videos will automatically go full screen if you do this.

Thanks for responding Kent. I get a different experience when I publish to the web (not LMS). 

If I set up the web object as

  • Display in new browser window & Load web object automatically ticked
    • When I visit the slide housing the web object on Chrome it a new tab is opened and the video starts playing automatically
  • Display in new browser window & Load web object automatically not ticked
    • Portion of the YouTube page for the video is displayed as if a screen shot, when I  click the graphic to start the video which then opens a new tab with the video full screen

What I was hoping for was.

User visits the slide, sees the embedded video and can decide to play in the size "as is" or use the player control to view the video full screen where by when the video ends the user is returned to the slide
