allowfullscreen has no effect


A friend is having problems implementing his Bitchute-videos in his website. The videos cant be played in full screen mode. I tried to help, tried several things but nothing worked.

Here is an example from his website (in HTML 5): *ttps://

And here is what i tried:

1. Adding the attributes „allowfullscreen“, „mozallowfullscreen“ and „webkitallowfullscreen“ to the iframe. Result: none.
2. Changing the class of the video from: „plyr plyr--full-ui plyr--video plyr--html5 plyr--paused plyr--stopped plyr--pip-supported plyr__poster-enabled“ to the same as bitchute: „plyr plyr--full-ui plyr--video plyr--html5 plyr--pip-supported plyr--fullscreen-enabled plyr__poster-enabled plyr—paused“. Result: the full screen button started being showed but didnt work.
3. Changing the source of the iframe from: *ttps://, which interestingly also cant play in full screen, to: *ttps://, which indeed has a full screen button. Result: the player worked in the site but the full screen button stopped working.

Is any solution known?

Thanks in advance!

  1. I have the same issue. I have started debugging by copying the iframe I have to a plain HTML page. It works on this plain page with zero scripts loading, etc. My best guess is something is blocking it... I read somewhere that the parent element needs to also allowfullscreen, but this does not seem right to me... hope this helps. I know your post was a few years ago. I would be interested if you resolved it somehow?
