Full Screen???

Full Screen???

I might be missing something here, but I don't see how you can expand the movie to full screen with the flash plugin. Any help would be appreciate. I paid for my entire monitor, please fill it

I haven't tried watching any flicks at the site just yet, but if you're referring to what's commonly known as "the black bars," well, here's why they're you're friend: Movies are made in a rectangular aspect ratio, whereas most TVs and computer monitors are squares. So the bars are there to replicate what the movie SHOULD look like.

And don't even get me started on what has to happen for a rectangular image to display on a square screen. Pan & Scan is the devil's work.

Bottom Line: Just say No to Full Screen.

Full screen sucks.

He doesn't mean Pan and Scan...hes talking about how you can only watch the movies on this site in a little box.

More like full-size widescreen. I've found you can zoom in but the pictue border doesnt change to the new zoomed in size.

I agree some of the scenes in the films are too dark to see what is happening even when you doublesize it.

I dont care about black bars. I just want the option to expand the video to full screen mode just like you can with Media player or quicktime. The screen is too small to enjoy the movie.

Drock, have u tried the view pull down? if not then try that. once ur there click toolbars, and then anything with a check in front. that clears most stuff off. best i can suggest,hope it helps some.

I know exactly what you mean. Like when you're watching a DVD on your machine using WinDVD and you hit the Z key and it becomes full screen instead of the WinDVD skin....

Unfortunately I think you have to have the FearNet skin around the video. I do not know of a workaround for this problem. It's not so bad if you have a decent size screen or widescreen monitor, but it's still sort of distracting and downright sucky. Meh, but it's still movies for free that I can access anywhere I have net access....

very interested in watching if the webmaster has any more bright ideas, love the content. but hell, bigger viewing area would be nice...

That annoys me to, I want the movie to be on the whole screen not a fourth of it.
