On my wish list for video playback has been the ability for it not to leave full screen going to the next video

Next in line is the issue of when the episode ends before I can mouse to releasing it from full screen.
I do not watch this with my keyboard handy (still reachable but not handy) and breaking away to get the keyboard and then pressing escape is well, for lack of a better word, inconvenient to my viewing pleasure (and is lazy on my part )

So I propose when it gets to the option of picking the next episode find a way to allow me to X out of full screen if this is possible without having to grab the keyboard.

I will live with the fact until coding changes I will not have my next video in full screen ala as Hulu does it but if this can be a small code change it would be a welcomed one for me.

If this has been posted already please feel free to add it to that current post and close this one - Feeling lazy and did not feel like looking it up sorrry

I do believe that it is not possible to maintain full screen without a major re-code of both the player and the surrounding page such as the comments as well as the queue system. As for exiting full screen, the same button that you hit to go into full screen also takes you out of it, and you could always turn off autoplay so that it does not go to the next episode by itself.

I have autoplay turned off as with some issue viewing episodes where it will cut out in the middle and give me the next episode ;)
I'm talking about the end screen you get where you can select from the episode choices they give you. There is no option there.

Below spoiler is a screen shot of what I mean


You can mouse all over this screen but no way to exit full screen without hitting escape.

In that case you could hit 'replay' and just exit from there. As long as it doesn't play for 30 seconds it won't think that you started the episode over and it won't change your queue.
