Frequently asked questions

I don't have full screen control when I embed the player on my website. What should I do?

If you're placing our embed code in a page and then iframing that page on your website you will not have full screen control on the player. In order to resolve this, please place following code in your iframe code

allowfullscreen="true" webkitallowfullscreen="true" mozallowfullscreen="true"

In other words, your full iframe code should look like this (Please adjust width and height according to your player size)

<iframe name="player" width="1028" height="580" marginwidth="1" marginheight="1" scrolling="no" border="0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" webkitallowfullscreen="true" mozallowfullscreen="true" src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/playerpage.htm"></iframe>
