Why when i click full screen i get a bunch of little videos SO ANNOYING!!

Posted

Only in Facebook i think i click on full screen but instead the video pops up but stays the same size. Then i click full screen on that and it gets bigger with a selection of other videos. Then i click full screen on that and it goes full screen (after missing half the video by now) then it does it to go back to normal screen.

I want FULL SCREEN i clicked FULL SCREEN not annoying little pop out etc etc

Is there any way i can stop this ridiculous setting and just have go to full screen, and go back to embedded version, i know what i want and i have clicked the button to do so, however they find the need to dick me about when all i want is full screen, been going on far to long this BS, please sort it out

Ok so Picture 1 is standard page.

Picture 2 is what i get instead of full screen.

Then i get full screen after clicking on that.

Picture 3 it what i get when i close the screen. Then have to close that little screen.

Often when opening i'll get Pic 3, then pic 2, then full screen, then pic 3 then back to standard screen so its like 6 clicks instead of two and i miss short videos trying to get full screen. Is it something to do with Vimeo, its ridiculous.

Thanks in advance for any help.
