Script Summary: Creates a button which expands The flash player to fill your screen. Works on YouTube, Viddler, Dailymotion, Blip.tv.

Expands The flash player on YouTube, Viddler, Dailymotion, or Blip.tv to fill the browser window.
The fullscreen button on most flash players will exit if you have multiple monitors and want to keep working on the other ones. Usually I like to have a movie running in fullscreen while I'm working on another monitor, so this presents a problem. Expanding the flash player to the size of the browser window fixes this problem. Combine this script with F11 and you essentially have the same experience.
The script will create a button [Expand] in the top right corner of the flash player. Pressing this button expand the player to fill the page, adding a small toolbar at the bottom which allows you to switch the player back to normal size.
Special feature for Viddler: There is a [Next Video] button which loads the Viddler page of the next video after the one currently viewed.
