How to Preserve Full Screen Option when Embedding Screencast.com Videos in @haikulearning @TechSmithEDU @TechSmithHelp

If you use Haiku LMS to embed you screencast.com videos, you may have noticed that there is no option to go fullscreen. (Haiku strips a piece of the code, which disables the full screen option.) But there is a solution!

The embed code generated by screencast.com will look like this:

iframe class=”tscplayer_inline embeddedObject” name=”tsc_player” scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ type=”text/html” style=”overflow:hidden;” src=”http://www.screencast.com/users/Ms.Roshan/folders/AP Calculus AB/media/5332925b-c913-47b0-9f8a-61304043f46c/embed” height=”550″ width=”880″ webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen>

What you need to do, in order to preserve the ability to go fullscreen from the embedded video in Haiku is add “?forceflash=true” (without the quotes) after the word embed in the code above.

So your new code will look like this (in red is the additional text you need to add to the embed code generated by screencast.com):

iframe class=”tscplayer_inline embeddedObject” name=”tsc_player” scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ type=”text/html” style=”overflow:hidden;” src=”http://www.screencast.com/users/Ms.Roshan/folders/AP Calculus AB/media/5332925b-c913-47b0-9f8a-61304043f46c/embed?forceflash=true” height=”720″ width=”1280″ webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen>

I hope this helps those of you using Haiku LMS + screencast.com!
