Fullscreen Support

This table lists inline & fullscreen support in browsers. We test against the following expectations:

  • Video should play inline, to enable custom controls and player-page interaction.
  • The built-in controls should have a fullscreen button, for code-free fullscreen support.
  • The fullscreen API should be supported, to make custom fullscreen players.
See the Fullscreen API draft spec for more info.
