Fullscreen videos in tiled tabs broken

  • In previous versions, videos in tiled tabs would maximise to that tile. This allowed you to play multiple videos simultaneously in tiles with very little margin between them.

    Since updating to version 1.14.1077.45 (Stable channel) (64-bit), this feature is no longer working.
    A video in a tiled tab now maximises to the whole screen instead of staying bound to its tile.

    This was a feature that I enjoyed a lot in Vivaldi. Is there a setting to re-enable this feature, or is it broken?

    Windows 10 64 bit, GeForce GTX 1080 driver version 390.77.

    @fred7010 We will have to wait for one of the insiders to confirm this, but I suspect that this was a bug that was fixed.

    I would expect fullscreen videos to play fullscreen, not in half of a page.

    Confirmed with 1.14.1077.45. Switches to Fullscreen.

    I will check internal version. Same in internal 1.15.109x.yy

    Please report the issue to Vivaldi.

  • I am not entirely sure what the intended behaviour of this was either.

    Both options are extremely useful to me. When tiling multiple video streams it seamlessly maximized it to the tile size, which is ideal. However, I still would like to be able to fullscreen a specific tile.

    The old behaviour was more flexible and if it is an either/or then I prefer to old one.

  • If it was a bug which was fixed, do you still need me to file a bug report?

    As has been mentioned it was an extremely useful "bug" and was a feature unique to Vivaldi. It was one of the main reasons I choose Vivaldi over Chrome.

    I expect an ideal solution would be to allow the user to specify the behaviour of video elements in tiled tabs.
    Do you know which is the most recent version for which this still works? I would be happy to roll back my browser version until this is re-implemented. (un-fixed?)
