My first public Chrome extension – “Multiple Monitor Full Screen”

26 December, 2010 § 3 Comments

Yesterday I published “Multiple Monitor Full Screen“, my first public extension to Google Chrome.  I just wrapped up shooting a simple walkthrough video of the extension:

Try it out and let me know what you think of it. Within the first day of the extension being published, there were 7 downloads and over 100 views of the inaugural demo video.

The extension uses JavaScript to resize the Flash player of the video to be the dimensions of the browser window. It uses HTML5 LocalStorage to keep track of the previous dimensions of the player so the user can revert back cleanly.

Right now the extension only works on non-embedded videos hosted by YouTube and Vimeo. I looked in to adding support for Hulu but they appear to be doing some funny things to restrict this. In the near future I would like to add support for embedded YouTube/Vimeo videos.
