Fullscreen not working for youtube videos with Widget Connector plugin in Confluence


I used the Widget Connector plugin to embed a Youtube in Confluence.

However, its not possible to click the fullscreen button.

You get the message "Fullscreen is unavailable".

Which client browser(s) have you tested this against?

Hi Gregory,

I have tested with browsers:

  • Google Chrome 
    • Version 60.0.3112.113 (Official Build) (64-bit) (Mac)
    • Version 60.0.3112.113 (Official Build) (64-bit) (PC)


  • Safari Version 10.1.2 (12603.3.8)
  •  Internet Explorer 11
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit)

Is there a solution to this?  I also run in to the same issue using both the widget connector and the straight HTML include macro.

It appears there is a workaround on confluence server, see the user comments on:  https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-40471

Thanks Gregory, the sample code from Tom in the workaround worked for me!
