Permanent Fullscreen while watching movies?

Permanent Fullscreen while watching movies?

I've noticed that whenever I try to watch a movie or show through your website, Fullscreen mode does not stay up when I deselect the movie itself. I have two monitors and will often watch something on one, while working on my main monitor. Is there anything I can do to keep Fullscreen mode on when I don't have that window selected? If not, Comcast should really look into fixing that.

I have a similar set-up and am seeing no issues.

 

I am currently writing this response on my Windows XP while Luck is playing on my other computer in full screen on my Mac 10.6. When I move the mouse over to my Mac, the video stays in fullscreen. I am using a software called Synergy.

 

What videos are exiting out of full screen mode? What are the operating systems and web browsers of each computer? What hardware and/or software are you using to link up your computers?

 

Thanks,

Re: Permanent Fullscreen while watching movies?

Right now it's any video I attempt to play. I am running Windows 7 and using Google Chrome as my browser. This is all on one computer, a custom built Sager Laptop

I'm having the same issues.  Running latest Mac Os Lion and latest Google Chrome.  Will not stay in full screen.  Could it be silverlight?!

Re: Permanent Fullscreen while watching movies?

I have dual LCDs and comcast xfinity videos do not stay full screen even if I set permission in silverlight.

 

I noticed that flash videos on comcast will stay full screen.

 

Also CBS videos using silverlight will stay full screen with permissions.

 

Here are the permisions that work for cbs

 

StaysInFullScreenWhenUnfocused

http://www.cbssports.com:80  with Reg_DWORD set to 11 

 

This is a registry setting.

 

So I added http://xfinitytv.comcast.net:80 to the registry and it shows up in the silverlight permission settings.

 

I go to play a movie on the other LCD and as soon as I click to the other LCD it will go to small size.

 

Very annoying.

 

Comcast what is the proper setting to FORCE full screen when unfocused?????

 

Thanks!

HEY!  if anyone is still reading this, can someone give me the exact steps in the registry on how to edit or add something to force comcast to be full screen when running 2 monitors? Im on windows 7, and firefox. Im also on the most current silverlight.

i think the 80 is extraneous, its likely just port number 80 which is TCP/IP (used but the vast majority of internet)
