    Skin Command to switch Video to FullScreen ?

    I configured RR to play video in the application-area of my skin
    (rr.ini ; videoautohide=false ) because i don't want an automatic
    full-screen switch.
    I want the user to be able to switch to fullscreen with a button.
    Is there a Command to tell RR to switch the video-player to fullscreen ?

    Tried it ; it only blacks out the skin area .
    But It does not go full-screen.
    The cursor is also gone.
    Pressing spacebar brings back the skin and the cursor.

    And on a touchscreen the spacebar does not work
    Mouseclick or mousemovement would be better.
    Maybe in future Guino can do something about it.

    Exactly. THat's what happens to me, too. I've been trying to talk to Guino about this but he probably thought I was some noob who didn't know how to skin or something.

    Hopefully he can get this fixed in future releases.

    Yup. I've been bugging the hell out of guino about this to no avail. See these threads.

    What if you created a skin to hold the video controls, with a button called fullscreen. Coded the button fullscreen to launch video.skin and set the timer delay for video fullscreen to 0 in RR config? Essentially going fullscreen immediately upon loading the vid player but not "officially" loading the vid player until clicking the fullscreen button.

    Disclaimer - if there is a major flaw in the above logic, I've had a hard day and really didn't think what I said through very much.

    It doesn't work because if the skin name isn't video_Player.skin, the audio will play instead of video. Video only play in video_player.skin and video_browser.skin. Any other skin will default to music.
