Update - May 10th

I'm still experimenting with it, so it will come and go. Currently it's back off because people are having problems with it

-----------------------------------------------------

Update - May 9th

The adbrite player is back but apparently only on some videos, however, this time the larger button is available, please remember that this is so that shinji can keep up with the bandwidth costs and keep crunchyroll a free site.

Update - April 25th:

Yeap, this will be permanent as far as i can tell! =D The other anti-leeching methods (max 15-20 video views per day) seem to make this unnecessary. The bandwidth has been cut down a bit so I can now afford to make this available again! =) yay!

Update - April 24th:
Looks like shinji brought back the larger link for non-supporters, we don't know yet if this is permanent or not though.

Okay, this is for those who are technically challenged to install and use Opera or IE7 for its enlarge feature.

Enlarge your videos for most browsers (Tested on Firefox, Seamonkey and IE6)

Copy and paste the following into your browser's address box and hit enter:


javascript:{var em=document.getElementById("embed_vid");em.style.height=600;em.style.width=800}void(0)


Create a bookmark for it for easy access. You can change the height and width to your desired dimensions.


Update (03/28/07) :

** Is it official that the larger button has become crunchy supporter only?
No
Again, shinji did not inform the staff about this.
------------------------------------------
Update (03/23/07) : The old player seems to be back, but keep in mind that we do not know if this is temporary or not.

SO DISREGARD THE REST OF THIS POST!!!!
------------------------------------------

As many of you have noticed, Shinji has changed the player to an ad based player (from a company named Adbrite) and has removed the Larger link so many are stuck watching in the normal sized screen. This may or may not be temporary but we haven't gotten any feedback from Shinji yet so we don't really know what's going on. He may just need to make a new set of links to work with the Adbrite player, but that's just speculation.

If the videos don't show up at all for you and you are using Firefox, you probably have Adblock Plus and it's blocking the video. For them to show up, you have to disable the block on Adbrite or simply disable Adblock all together.

How to view Full-screen videos:
Regardless of the browser you are using open up the page for the video you want to watch. From your browser, click on View and then click Source or Page Source and you should get a page with a bunch of weird text (HTML code). At this page, use the Find or Search function on your browser and search for the following.
http://vid.adbrite.com/video/abplayer.swf?&vid=
It should find and highlight the part of the URL that you searched for. Then all you have to do is copy the whole link with the number, paste it into your URL bar and hit enter.
--------------------------------------------
Method 2:
This is another method for FireFox users. Get the UnPlug extension:

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2254/

After installing it, right-click on the page of the video you want to watch Full Screen and choose UnPlug. It will take you to to a page with a link to the video. Click the link, and the video will load at Full Screen.
--------------------------------------------
SIMPLEST METHOD FOR FIREFOX OR OPERA USERS
(This doesn't work on Internet Explorer 6)
fluid_motion posted this method in the previous Forum News thread. Simply copy and paste everything in the quote box and paste it into the Address Bar on any video page that has the new player and it will take you to the Full Screen page.

javascript:window.location.href=document.getElementsByName('movie')[0].value;

The best thing to do is to create a new bookmark and paste that javascript code into the Location field. So all you have to do is simply click on that button whenever you want to view a video in Full Screen.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update:
Here's a link to picture tutorial that for viewing full-screen videos, that redgarnettk made.

Now if you don't like this, and want a large screen just pay 6 bucks and you'll get a large screen plus high quality videos!

Like I did, just today! ^-^

Either you have a firewall that's blocking it or you have some type of universal adblocking software.

I'm not able to view them either. *goes to deactivate firewall and stuff*

will come back later with results


[RESULTS]

Ok so deactivating the firewall, phishing filter, protection mode and ad blocker on IE7 didn't work. But the new video player works in firefox though.

Shinji, can you make the video player IE compatible?..well when you get around to reading this thread
