Fullscreen not available for Youtube video

I'm trying to have a video control play a YouTube video but for some reason the fullscreen button inside the youtube player is greyed out. 


I have tried changing the size of the video control, I have played with the "Lock aspect ratio", "Lock orientation" and "Scale to fit" options in the App Settings but the issue remains.


The idea is for our users to have a list of youtube videos for the specific subject they are learning and then just watch it inside the app. 


I have also turned off the "Show controls" property which helps users continue watching the video in the youtube app, but then I have the problem of them getting lost and having to start over again in the app.


I have tried this with both Portrait and Landscape apps.


I hope somebody out there has solved this issue.

Re: Fullscreen not available for Youtube video

Hi @Anonymous ,


Where did you have this issue? I just tested with web browser on Win10, and it is true that full screen is not available. But on Andriod phone, I don't have the issue that you mentioned. The screenshot as below:

Re: Fullscreen not available for Youtube video

Thanks for the reply @v-monli-msft 


I have confirmed this problem is happening in both windows 10 and android. The screenshot you attached is of a video control but the content is not a youtube video. 


I'm attaching a screenshot of a video control with a youtube video.

As you can see, the fullscreen button is greyed out. This screenshot was taken from the latest version of powerapps (3.19032.17) on Android.
