A Clever Trick to Play YouTube Videos without Distractive Features

Today, however, we are sharing with you a very great hack we learned from Daniel Russel. This tip is about forcing the video to fill the browser and exclude all other distractive features. This is a great way to use YouTube videos with your students and here is how it works.

This is how the landing page to a youTuve video looks like



Now to force the video to take all the page, you need to take the original URL of the video and add “watch_popup” to it.

For instance this URL is the original URL of a video by Ken Robenson :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG9CE55wbtY

Now add _popup right between watch and ?v and you will have this modified URL:

http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=iG9CE55wbtY

Click on the modified url to see how it will play.
