Good question. In the two years since this article was published, my full-screen example has stopped working. Apple's QuickTime Developers' site lists three approaches:



  1. Create a QuickTime Media Link [XML] file that specifies one of the full-screen modes.

  2. Create a movie with the full-screen attribute set internally. [This is what I did above, so I'm not sure why it's no longer working.]

  3. Add a sprite that sets the movie into full-screen mode at run time.


Examples and background here:

And here's a page with some fullscreen "wrapper" movies into which you can insert your own movies:

They didn't work for me. Research continues....
