    Hi guys,
    I am in little conundrum since there are so many places on internet which show media in WMV format (streaming and not for download), so my question is, though I use flip4mac (free edition) I am not able to full screen it.

    I know for offline viewing VLC media player is there but what u ppl use for playing online WMV fullscreen?

    Thanks in advance!!:)

    You might need Quicktime Pro, since flip4mac is a qt plugin. I've always had pro so I'm not sure, but you might need for for full screen...

    Nope, the regular Quicktime is enough to view WMV files, using flip4mac.

    And with the recent update, the regular Quicktime can display videos full screen.

    Flip4Mac has never failed me! Been using it since the day I got my Mac!

    can someone please tell me then, what combination of keys will change the mode to FullScreen, since Flip4Mac doesnt have any inbuilt buttton to change to fullscreen!!

    Thanks

    I don't think you can go full screen while viewing from a webpage. You need to go to system preferences -> Flip4Mac WMP -> Browser -> Launch quicktime player

    Then just go full screen with cmd-F the way you would in quicktime.
