Use ifVideoPlayer.SetDestinationRect(x as Integer, y as Integer, w as Integer, h as Integer) to set the window size to the full screen, and then set it back to the window when the user clicks OK again.

You also need to adjust the transparency over it

Re: Video playing in full screen-please help

To expose the videoplayer you have to
Place a transparent layer directly over it
You can create a transparent layer by creating
A target rect with full transparent color above
the video player. It has to be at the
Same coordinates and the same size as
The destination rect of the player
To see any of your changes you need to
Refresh any changed layers by calling setlayer
Again. Your better off using roscreen
For what you are trying to accomplish
You are going to be disappointed in the
Performance with the imagecanvas

The customvideoplayer example in the SDK does this already, you can easily adapt this to your purposes.
