This is pretty low-priority as problems go, but I'd like to know if there is some way to set full-screen mode as default for playing episodes.

I like to sit back in my easy chair and watch three or four episodes in a row. After one ends, the site automatically queues up the next episode, but it doesn't play it full screen mode. This means I gotta get up just to push one lousy button.

Is there any settings anywhere which will change it so that the next episode will play in the same settings as the previous one? It seems a bit of a waste that the system automatically loads the next show, but won't play it correctly.

The way we do it now, I believe this is not possible. I think we would need to completely change how the function works in order to achieve this. I won't bore you with the technical details but I'll see if this can be done in the future.

Though we are working on a Popout Player which won't stay in true fullscreen mode but you probably could keep the browser window in fullscreen mode which should be more tolerable.

YES FINALLY NOW We can use auto switch episodes thing in full screeen Now I can lay in bed and the episode will automatically change, I think you should do this to, in Hulu and Netflix and all those advanced video players, they can switch quality right in the video like no reloading or anything.

Say in hulu I am watching family guy in 360p, you can switch it to 720p like bam no reloading no anything, same thing with YouTube no reloading and can automatically in the video so then their would be no needs for tabs for 360p and 480p and 720p and pp.

Necro Post, And I don't care. If there is a newer thread, I did not find it when I did a search. Maybe I missed it.

either way. This is kinda a big issue if you think about it.

You implement a feature to auto play the next episode. however it will not keep it full screen. So the viewer has to regardless of this feature, return to their computer to change it to full screen. This defeats the entire purpose of this feature which is to keep the user away from the computer and relaxed watching shows on their payed (or ad based) service.

It is now 2012 and there has been no change and no excuse. 2 years is a very long time for a seemingly easy fix.

its the little things in life that please people.
