Fullscreen option

I'd love it if there was an option for videos that, when enabled, automatically goes to fullscreen when a video starts.

Usually I watch T.V. shows from my computer on my bigscreen TV and sit back on the couch, but it's kind of annoying to get up every 20-30 minutes to put each episode on fullscreen. Obviously not a big deal, but it would be a nice thing to have.

For auto fullscreen video in Winamp there are a couple things to try...

● There is a hidden option for auto fullscreen

While Winamp is not running, edit the Winamp.ini file and under the [Winamp] section change video_auto_fs=0 to video_auto_fs=1.

Depending on your install of Winamp, Winamp.ini will be located in...

C:\Program Files\Winamp

-- or --

%appdata%\Winamp Where %appdata% is a shortcut to the 'Application Data'/'User Settings' folder. You can click on the Start button > click the Run icon and put %appdata%\Winamp in the Open box and click OK. That should bring you to the Winamp settings folder in 'Application Data'/'User Settings'.

The actual path will vary with the current Windows version you are using. Example...

Windows 2000 Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Winamp

Windows Vista

● Another method (and perhaps more preferable) is DrO's Auto Video Fullscreen plug-in
