I guess that's the heart of it. My view is the opposite. I don't think 
video should be special in this regard.

If you want to see an embedded image full screen, you do "View Image", 
then "Full Screen". Why can video not be the same? Of course, the page 
should have the option (with the event I mentioned) of making doing 
"Full Screen" for the browser Do The Right Thing with the video, if they 
think that's what the Right Thing is. And maybe that would become the 
norm on video sharing sites.
