Default Limit the size of F11 "Full Screen"

I'm using a sandboxed browser, and some flash movies are quite small --
when I press F11 of course the sandbox does then take over the entire screen -
basically likes it's designed to do!

but I'd like to be able to limit its "F11 Full Screen" size to be ONLY the size
that I originally set the sandbox to --
so that I can continue to interact with other apps on my desktop/screen.

Does anyone know of a free app
that will do this? thx

I often have a video playing while I'm working so I've found a couple of different solutions for this, depending on what browser you use.

Maxthon Portable has an integrated pop-out Flash player which works very well, you can resize it and place it where you want it. The only problem is that it doesn't work with HTML5. I don't know if they'll be fixing that at some point.



The frame/controls etc can be auto-hidden.

If you're a Firefox user then the add-on Pop Video does the same thing and works with HTML5 too. It's not been updated in over a year but everything still works except for "lite mode" which hides the controls in Youtube and so on.



Lastly you could use a desktop media player which is capable of streaming videos from the internet, e.g. VLC or SM Player (portable version if you click on "See more packages") or Pot Player (can easily be made portable) etc etc. They all have pluses/minuses but SM Player is excellent for Youtube as it has a integrated Youtube search engine.

... all of the above run in Comodo sandbox with no problems by the way. I don't know about other sandboxes though.
