YouTube full screen - how?

Postby cyber_human » Fri Dec 28, 2012 10:01 am

Hello everybody!
Today I got hot delivery of my first Android TV dongle - iMito MX1. Big thanks for French power adapter in the box! I did not expect that - very nice.
I'm testing that adapter - so far so good.
However I do not know how to make YouTube playback full screen? I do play HD tune, but cannot find full screen button. I'm using YouTube app from Google Play.

Regards to all!

Awesome sauce. The old YouTube app worked in full screen for me. Thanks!

so the 4.2.16 version out there with 720p enabled don't do full screen. They look like the same hacks as the 4.1.47 version you mentioned here.

huh...

I installed the older 4.1.47 version and it worked just fine full-screen. good.

This afternoon I looked and saw something had auto-updated. It was YouTube and it was back to the non-fullscreen capable 4.2.16 !

I had forgotten to turn off auto-updating...had to uninstall 4.2.16 and reinstall 4.1.47 to get fullscreen again. :roll:

HD works in both versions. I don't think this late November ROM it cme with does 1080p anyway, right ?

I found the Youtube for Google.TV apk and installed it.

Works full screen HD and you can do the remote share thing with your phone!

Can you please share apps from Google TV?
For example, the Youtube for google tv.
I do not have Google TV or Android device id for google tv, so it does not install from google play.

I have sent you a PM for you to check out your link and mine. They look to be the same to me so I'm betting your link is good to go. Be careful about posting this as Google has terms for releasing their apps outside of the play store.

Sure, strange but I can't choose what to play from my play lists. Is it the same for you?

Ok just checked and the bar is there at the bottom.

On my phone and my tablet there is an option in setting to auto hide the bar. Seems that the iMito folks simply added a manual method which sucks. I would love to get an auto hide method implemented. Geekbuying?

As for the playlists I'll check when I get home tonight. But most nights are packed with more work outside of work LOL so it may take me a day to check it.

Same here on the nexus 7 and the sgs3 the bar auto hides. Guess I'll go with the regular youtube app, 47 something

You don't have to download the older youtube app if this is caused by auto update. Just uninstall the update and the old beautiful version will be back. Make sure to disable auto update for youtube app.
