      Description

      The core_media_player_swf class outputs an embedded Flash player without the allowfullscreen option, so if the Flash content provides a full screen option, browsers generally prevent this from working.

      A good example of this is the Planet eStream plugin (https://moodle.org/plugins/view/repository_planetestream) which loads a video player with a visible full screen option, but the button doesn't work.
