Video playback, full screen option

New postby Babs on Tue Jan 20, 2009 5:59 pm

I can zoom the video when sent to the bb player on the storm. Cannot zoom to full screen when using podtrapper.

Hi Babs,

I'm not sure what you mean by zoom. Do some podcasts play full screen and some not?

On this topic, on the storm, when playing a video podcast in landscape orientation it would be cool if the video could expand to full screen. As it is now, it is the same size in portrait and landscape orientation.

They're the same size regardless of the orientation when starting the video?

Ah, I see. Ok, if I start in Portait it stays the same size when I rotate the Storm while playing and there is white screen on the right edge. But if I start in Landscape, it starts full screen, but also stays the same size if I rotate while playing, so the edges of the video are cut off while in portrait. Does that make sense?

I don't know if it can be changed on the fly, while playing or not. I realize now that I had never started playing a video podcast in landscape so I never saw it in full screen.

I may not be able to fix this one without building a version specific to OS 4.3 or higher (the first OS versions that let me control video, right now I'm targeting 4.2.1+). I'll definitely check it out, though.

At least we know there's a workaround...

Hi guys,

I just pre-released 1.6.12, it adds support for keeping the video full screen during a rotation. Let me know if it doesn't work for you...
