How To Watch YouTube Videos Full Screen And Still Work

Ever try to watch a YouTube video full screen while working on another monitor and the video keeps shrinking back to normal size? It can be very annoying to deal with when you’re trying to do something else on the other screen. I mean, having a playlist of Battlefield 3 montages up full screen helps us all work better. Nothing like watching news, sports videos, and music videos while working or playing online games or working.

Over at pokerlistings.com, there’s a nice tutorial on how to set a YouTube video to full screen and work elsewhere (like on a second monitor) without the full screen video shrinking back down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t require any addons or extensions. It’s a simple change to the URL of any YouTube video that makes that video take up the whole window. Then, you can maximize that window or make it full screen (usually by pressing F11). I tried it and I really like it. Mostly because it doesn’t require installing any addons or extensions.

Pretty neat! Check it out here: The Greatest YouTube Trick Ever.
