When within the gear vr app, there used to be a menu video assistant, where you could set display mode or make it fullscreen. It no longer shows up while watching stuff using emby.it still shows up as mormal while using youtube or other video sites..

Yea probably because we are using our custom video controls and hiding the ones from the video player.

Ok, found a way:

 

1. Download Emby Version 3.12 from  https://github.com/M...r/Emby/releases

2. Overwrite the Emby system folder

3. Kill your internet-connection

4. Start Emby

5. Configure Emby

6. Disable automatic updates in settings

7. Reconnect your internet

8. Enjoy your movies again!

it's because we are using custom video controls so the samsung vr button is not there anymore. there is a web vr api that we will look at incorporating into our video OSD in a future update. thanks.

Found another work around. Open Samsung Internet app, then play couple secs of a video then stop and exit emby.down bottom of the Samsung app you will see video history, start video from there it will go full screen properly. You will have to start each video manually.it won't auto play the next ep automatically. Luke any progress made on intergratin b it better? Cheers hope this helps someone..

Hi.

I have the same issue.

When playing in Samsung internet (gear vr), the option for full screen is missing. Used to be located in the lower right corner.

This is only when playing directly through Emby in Samsung internet. If I've played a few seconds first, then I'm able to play the movie in full screen, but not from Emby

but directly from Samsung internet.

 

This is both for 2D and 3D movies.

 

This started i janurary.

Thought I would add there is an app available "pigasuss" that supports dnla servers. works with emby as the back end there is a cinema and a void cinema. You don't get a pretty interface with lots of metadata like with emby via the samsung internet app but its a bigger screen and seems to work well.

The apps create a virtual cinema screen. Samsung internet screen is smaller. Unless we can get back support to go fullscreen.

We have a fullscreen button in the video player, if the browser supports the fullscreen api.

Then it musn't support fullscreen. When sites like youtube are viewed samsung internet app has a fullscreen button. This button is hidden and only appears on some sites. It used to appear and work for emby but doesn't anymore..

Yea that is because we are using our custom UI which means you only get a fullscreen button if the browser has implemented the fullscreen api.

 

Samsung must have customized the native controls with something propietary which would explain why you got the button before.
