Currently Being ModeratedJan 12, 2010 3:58 PM (in response to sig)When you go to full screen that message appears for a second or 2. You can make it come back by moving the cursor over the screen. I do not know of a way to disable it. Could be a Quicktime feature.Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 13, 2010 2:49 AM (in response to sig)I see that message every time I set a video to full screen. Any embedded video, and with any browser, so I'm guessing it's at OS level.
Try this video on full screen, or any youtube video will do too:

Currently Being ModeratedJan 13, 2010 6:21 AM (in response to SpaceAlder)That video is a Flash video. I have noticed that any video I look at that is Flash does this when you go to fullscreen. Whoever made the video has added the message you see when you go to fullscreen. It has nothing to do with your OS.G5 Quad/MBP/PB G4/23 inch Cinema Display/TC 1tb/iPhone (2)/iPod 30gb, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Apple TV/Win XP Pro/Win Vista Business/Suse Linux
Currently Being ModeratedJan 14, 2010 5:10 AM (in response to SpaceAlder)What I should have said was, whoever made Flash has added this message.

Quicktime Player, VLC, DVD Player etc all give you a choice of what size to view on the screen. That command is a shortcut to both getting the window to fill the screen, as well as the reverse.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 4, 2010 4:51 PM (in response to Klaus1)I'll tell you why it's a problem:'
just google the phrase: "press esc to exit full screen mode remove" and you'll see that many people - like me - can't get this thing to go away. It pops up and just stays there indefinitely. But so far all the work arounds i found are for pc's.
Help is appreciated.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 4, 2010 6:03 PM (in response to Klaus1)HOW TO REMOVE "PRESS ESC to exit fullscreen mode" IN MACS!!
I think i figured this one out and the problem started when i learned about flash cookies. I learned from reading around that flash cookies reinsert cookies onto your mac so -- if you delete cookies from your browser....well the flash cookies are stored somewhere else ("yourname"/library/preferences/macromedia) -- so those flash cookies just send reinforcements and bam - the cookies that you just deleted from your browser are right back.
My conclusion: delete everything in macromedia folders, then go to macromedia.com settings manager and make sure no one can use any disk space on my computer.
The Solution: There are 2 folders created in /library/preferences/macromedia/flashplayer called "#SharedObjects" and "macromedia.com" -- each of them gets a folder created in them called "s.ytimg.com" -- YOU NEED THAT!!
So if your "press esc" dialogue won't go away and you already deleted those files -- then take the macromedia file from "/library/preferences" and stick THAT in the trash. Empty the trash; it will be recreated. Close out your browsers and restar them. Now the first time you visit a flash video site like youtube -- watch a vid and switch to fullscreen mode -- that "s.ytimg.com" file will be restored and the "press esc to exit fullscreen mode" will fade away as it should!
So what is that "s.ytimg.com" file? i have no clue. Anyone else?
Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2010 8:22 AM (in response to Sam2222)It looks like a Flash bug. I'm running Flash Player 10,0,45,2. To clarify, I had the issue where the message appears and does not go away when using full-screen mode. The preferences window was also freezing up. I quit the browser, moved ./library/preference/macromedia folder to the trash, and restarted the browser. Problems solved.
In addition, you can go to a site with flash video, right-click on the video to bring up flash preferences, then set the disk storage to zero. I don't know the impact of this on cookies, speed, etc.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 30, 2010 1:02 PM (in response to SpaceAlder)I agree, this message is extremely annoying. I KNOW how to escape fullscreen mode; I've watched thousands of youtube videos, like everyone else. Surely Adobe can provide the option "never see this message again."
Or it should only appear at the same time the play button is visible. I mean, you play the video and have this giant message in front of it for 2-3 seconds? That's like 10% of a trailer.
I end up rewinding almost every single video I play in fullscreen. Yeesh.
Anyone know a way to kill it forever on a mac?2.0 ghz Powermac g5, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

Currently Being ModeratedMay 30, 2010 5:34 PM (in response to Klaus1)Below the window edge? You know we're talking about full screen mode, right?
There's nowhere to go below the window edge - it's fullscreen.
