Remember on iOS 6 and older, when you streaming video online at full screen mode on iPad, you get an arrow point upward and downward telling you you can quit full screen view without stop the video.

on iOS 6:

On full screen:

when you tap that arrow thing, you get out of full screen and video still playing.

What happened on iOS 7?

Here is the screen shoot:

Noticed that the arrow thing is missing on iOS 7? To get out of full screen mode, you need tap stop which will stop playing the video.

When this compared with iPhone version?

It is exactly same as iPhone version.

This just show how bad iOS 7 is optimized for iPad. In fact, the whole iOS 7 really doesn't take advantage of big screen. For example, multi-tasking card view shows only 3 apps when it can show more.

I do hope this particular problem would be fixed on final version. It is very annoying when you cannot get out of full screen.

What about the arrows on the top right?

Since iPad uses 4:3 screen, so you would get 2 black bar on top and bottom. The arrows on the top right just make video complete full screen without bars.

Noticed that the direction of arrows has changed? From two arrows point outward to two arrows point inward. Tells you when two arrows point outward it video will zoomed in to full screen. When two arrows point inward, tells you the video will zoomed out.
