Remove all bordering around chrome window (YouTube)

Recommended Posts



I am looking for a way to essentially fullscreen a YouTube video in Chrome to the size of the window. Eliminating all chrome features, scroll bars, bookmarks, and YouTube headers, etc...

To explain why, I wrote a simple script that forces a window to be on top, so when I am working I can have a small sized YouTube window opened playing a video. Being picky, the features of Chrome+YouTube are annoying to see. I would like the video to fulfill the window when toggling it on top and off.

Any way to achieve this through the chrome window or will I need to create my own GUI and embed the video?

Maybe allowing just the main features such as exit and minimize to exist? While preserving full video functionality of pause and resume.

I was able to answer my question after a few days of research and ingenuity. For anyone interested in the solution:

What I did was combine both embedded YouTube videos with the chrome application parameter. Embedded videos are a link to a video only page, and Chrome App parameter opens the page in a minimal option window.

A snippet of the code I used is below:

ShellExecute("chrome.exe","--app-window-size=" & @DeskTopWidth*.25 & @DeskTopHeight*.3 & " --app=" & StringReplace($url, "watch?v=", "embed/"), "", "") ;25% width and %30 height (480x324)

      I entered several wrong password, it shows "Access Denied!" and re-prompt for password for login.
      Then I entered the correct one, it shows "Access Granted!" but it still re-prompt for password for login.
      Any idea what's wrong? Thanks

      On top of it, it always written the Region of code and red color. Then it also assign some value into some variable.
      May I know, what are their use and what is the purpose of doing?
      If I remove them, will affect the application?

      While Not _Login() _Initial_Check() WEnd Func _Login() Local $FLAG_LOGIN = _Password_Check() If @error = 1 Then _Close_Application() ElseIf @error = 2 Then _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", $FLAG_LOGIN) Return False Else ; $FLAG_LOGIN return TRUE _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Access granted!") Return True EndIf EndFunc  I do have a question regarding the While Not Loop.
      According to the code I post above, While Not _Login() is similar to While _Login() = False right?
      Which mean when _Login() return False and it will execute the _Initial_Check() function, but somehow the logic is not right and I also don't understand why While Not _Login() loop is executed as expected.
      What I wanna achieve is when _Login() is not success, which mean return False then it continue loop the _Login() function until it return True
      When It return True only execute the _Initial_Check() function.
      Please kindly clarify. Thanks
