It was getting a number of complaints so I removed it. There are already built in ways in the browser to toggle full screen. Please just use those. Thanks.

In most cases, F11 will toggle full screen in browsers.
On android you can 'add to homescreen' in chrome then the web app will be fullscreen when opened with that button.

no way to just add it as a setting? it's nice with a touchscreen laptop

An explicit button is probably a better idea than something people will just fall into accidentally.

sure but for touch screen devices, an explicit button requires 3 taps, the first to show the controls (this pauses the video) a second to click the full screen button and a third to unpause the video. rather annoying. 

 

but i am also aware of the problem as the double click used to go to fullscreen anytime you clicked not just when video is playing. i am asking if there is a possible middle ground.

On a touch device, I think the best middle ground is bookmarking to your home screen and turning it into an app. 

 

The reason being because the double click method was too easy to accidentally invoke, but even if we wanted to do a button the question is where would we put it. We're kind of out of room as it is. The one place that does currently have a button though is the video player.

can i make it an app on windows? i have a surface. yeah i only care about the double click in the video player. not asking for a button everywhere. i know the video player has a button but as i said the 3 taps is a pain.

You can try this method in Chrome:

If that doesn't work in RT tablet mode, then I'm sure Edge has the feature.

this still leaves the taskbar and the top bar. same issue as before, need to tap three times to enter or exit fullscreen mode.

I'm also on a Surface and running the apps or Theater is a huge battery drain so I went back to the web version. Without a keyboard, it's really difficult getting in and out of fullscreen. Making a desktop shortcut won't make it go to fullscreen, it still has the Windows start menu row and the application bar at the top. Why can't you just make this a setting for the rest of us that want to have that feature?

 

@Luke, you just ruined Emby for me. Thanks.

We can find a way to work in a full screen button. Then it will be obvious for everyone. Thanks guys.

hey, i think there is a little bit of a miscommunication here. It is only a problem really when you are playing stuff. I personally don't care if i can make my emby homepage full screen or not. the problem is that when playing media, even though there is a button, it takes me three taps to enter and exit full screen while previously it was just a matter of a simple double tap. adding a button to the emby homepage is not going to solve that and will probably just clutter up the nice clean interface.

Maybe what we could do is limit the double click to the header area

The quick and easy change I can make right now would be header only.

can you instead make it an option to revert to how it was before? and have it off by default?
