I've added keyboard listeners that allow me to controll a
video (for example, spacebar pauses and plays the video).
It all works well, except for when I switch to
Fullscreen-mode, in which case the keyboard events are never
Anybody knows why?
Is that a reported bug or an intended limitation?
If you can show a fullscreen flash, you can imitate something
other than the site that's hosting the flash content (including the
appearance of the browsers address bar showing a real bank url
etc). It could be used to trick people they are on a different site
and to enter their passwords. I think it makes sense given how easy
it would be to do that otherwise.
Its the same reason you can't force the fullscreen mode
without a user interaction.
Those are just my opinions though... I've not read anything
official on it.
