Here is a simple trick , just replace the word "watch" in the URL of any YouTube video with "watch_popup" and the video will expand to fit your browser window, not the desktop


For example original  YouTube video is located at



Change it to http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=XkgMSCD-sDY  and watch it
