Problems viewing the program in fullscreen?

Hi everyone!  I'm Jeff DeHayes, Web Producer for CNN Student News.  "Web guy" for short.

I just want to take a moment to address your concerns regarding the inability to watch the show in fullscreen from the website.  

Right now, the only way to view the program online in fullscreen is to download/watch the podcast via iTunes.  There's no need to sign-up for anything, use an iPod or pay for anything on iTunes.  Here's what you do:

  1. Install iTunes on your computer by visiting: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=179950332
  2. Search for "CNN Student News" in the iTunes store
  3. Click the CNN Student News logo when you see it in your search results
  4. Then click the "subscribe" button on our iTunes page

That's it!  Now, every time you load iTunes, the latest episode of Student News should automatically download into your iTunes player.  Click play when it's downloaded, then right click the video and choose "fullscreen".

Have you found a different solution?  Post it here!  Questions?  Ask them here!  Until next time...
