Hello.

Recently when I watch BBC shows on-line ,I am unable to view in full screen.
When the full screen box is clicked,nothing happens.Any ideas ???.

Cheers

Don't know why this happens, as I have not had the same problem. Why not try uninstalling your exisiting program and then do a fresh install. This quite often cures problems where programs develop glitches.

Same problem here,i-player won't open in full screen.
No program to uninstall etc because I use i-player just for watching not downloading.Presumably it's a BBC problem that needs solving?

just tried it - mine says 'new version of flash player needed to watch full screen'

Full screen works for me but only when using Firefox. When I use IE it tells me that I need to download the flash player, which I have done on a number of occasions without success..
I also can't play any videos on YouTube when using IE, but I can when using Firefox.
The common denominator therefore is FIREFOX.
Good Luck.

Hello all and many thanks for your help.

Using IE I can view in full screen,with Firefox I had to download and install the latest flash player,now it works..

Cheers for the help.
