video.js fullscreen in Blackboard will not work

I've tried everything in my power to get a video to fullscreen in Blackboard but nothing works. This only is a problem when the video.js script is loaded. If using the generic HTML5 video, it will work. My error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'webkitEnterFullScreen' of undefined

Stack trace (I'm using video-js markers plugin as well):

vent.returnValue is deprecated. Please use the standard event.preventDefault() instead.

The code:

Library loading (right before the </html>):

<script src="../../../js/libs/video-js/video.js"></script>

    videojs.options.flash.swf = "../../../js/libs/video-js/video-js.swf";
  <!-- end: video -->

    <!-- begin: video-js markers plugin -->
    <script src="../../../js/libs/video-js/markers/videojs.markers.js"></script>

     // initialize video.js
     var video = videojs('dd_movie');

     //load the marker plugin
        setting: {
              default_text: ""
              display: false
        //set break time

Note: If I open the page locally or on a seperate page, it works 100%. I'm guessing it's a DOM issue or interference with Blackboards libraries. Is there a way to kind of override blackboards libraries with my own?

For those who don't know, Blackboard loads pages through an iFrame which is part of the issue I assume. Again, this works 100% on its own page, just not on Blackboard.


You can only make this work if you develop your content/service as a building block or a web service using the Blackboard API. I do not think there is a way to render anything inside Blackboard without using the Blackboard libraries. One way is to create a mashup tool which will allow you to play videos and maximize the player easily. I've seen the Sharestream folks creating such a video player tool and it works nicely windowed or in full screen mode.
