I embedded YouTube and Vimeo videos on my site. I just noticed that the fullscreen feature of both players is stripped out by TinyMCE. I usually did adjustments in [blue]/cms/javascript/tinymce.template.js[/blue] to fix these things but this time I can't find a proper way to allow the fullscreen parameter. Here is an example:

Original code (Vimeo):

<object width="424" height="320">
	<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
	<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
	<param name="movie" value=";;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00adef&amp;fullscreen=1" />
	<embed src=";;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00adef&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="424" height="320">

after saving this in TinyMCE:
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,29,0" width="424" height="320">
	<param name="movie" value=";;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00adef&amp;fullscreen=1" />
	<param name="quality" value="high" />
	<param name="menu" value="false" />
	<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
	<embed src=";;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=00adef&amp;fullscreen=1" wmode="transparent" quality="high" menu="false" pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="424" height="320">

If anyone knows how to fix this it would be great if you could post how to.
