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:

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

Someone found a solution for Confluence Cloud?

It would be very useful to have a fix/workaround for Confluence Cloud.

Hi @Nick Kennedy, you can check out our app "YouTube for Confluence" (see The app supports playing video in a fullscreen Confluence Dialog. Due to technical limitation in Confluence Cloud, the native YouTube fullscreen mode is not supported, but our app provides some workarounds to get a similar fullscreen experience.

this has to be ready out of the box. such a non-sense to pay extra money for using fullscreen view in youtube macro at extremely expensive product

im already paying about 1k$ only for confluence&jira to atlassian every single month. it's too expensive to keep business knowledgebase on confluence already

How can a "Technical limitation" be a blocker for fullscreen youtube on your platform in 2020?

In 6 months the feature-ticket request for a custom domain will have it's 10-year anniversary. TEN YEARS.

Good luck on ever seeing this.
