isn't there a way to set the default to full screen? I'm using my laptop hooked up to the tv. its so annoying having to get up every time to put it back on full screen.

it defeats the purpose of having a playlist if I'm going to have to get up anyway.

With the Chrome browser, there's an extension available that keeps you in full screen, but it does leave the progress bar visible...

It would require a change in the way CR works. For security reasons, Adobe Flash does not allow a application to promote itself to full screen.

As each video on CR has a unique URL, each video is a new instance to Adobe Flash. YouTube gets around this by loading the new video into the same frame. Before you full screen a YouTube video, make note of the URL (or at least the last few letters). Then when it ends, click on another video while in full screen. Once it is player, exit fullscreen and very quickly look at the URL; you'll see it change from the URL of the original video, to the one for the video you were just watching (and the video itself actually reloads, normally (but not always) restarting at the same point).


Given that this is a oft-repeated request, I'm crossing my fingers and hoping CR implements this functionality in the new player, but it might also require changes in the structure of the site itself. If it does, it would likely be much longer in coming to the site.
