YouTube Video Embedding into slide with full screen option

Hello, I'm trying to embed a YouTube video into storyline.  I did not have any luck using the embed code on Insert Video, so I went ahead and tried to insert it as a web object.  Ultimately what I want is for it to display in the slide and have the full screen button accessible, but no matter which browser I use I get an error that full-screen is not available.  I've tried setting the controls in the html string by adding fs=1 as well with no luck.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Hi Stephanie,

When you embed videos from websites, such as YouTube and Vimeo, in Storyline 2 courses, you may find the fullscreen button for these videos is either missing or doesn't work in your published output.

For security reasons, many web browsers are now restricting fullscreen mode for embedded iframe content.

We provided a programmatic solution for this issue in Update 10 for Storyline 2. Install the latest version of Storyline 2 to take advantage of the new features and fixes, then republish your course.
