I'd like to embed some help videos in my app to highlight how to use some of the features I'm not sure are being utilized by the users. I found instructions for how to nicely embed a YouTube video into your app here: http://iphoneincubator.com/blog/audio-video/how-to-play-youtube-videos-within-an-application The only issue is, I'd like to play the video full screen in portrait orientation. I imagine forcing it into portrait isn't too hard (it's just a matter of overriding the orientation rotation methods of the view controller, right?) But the issue is that all YouTube videos are either 16:9 or 4:3 orientation (or am I wrong?) To overcome that, I'll just make my video HD and center the video in the middle. This is where the real issue is: How do I make the video expand to fill the screen? IE: In the video playing interface, at the top of the screen there's the scrub bar in the middle, a done button on the left, and a button with two arrows on the right. I'd like it to be as if the button on the right were hit. Suggestions?
