Switch between fullscreen and windowed mode

pht-for-linux

#1

I just installed PMC on an old Mac Mini running Ubuntu 12.10 x64. The first couple of times I ran PMC it worked fine, but now it always starts in windowed mode, for some reason.

 

Is there a way to switch between windowed and fullscreen mode?

 

How do I force PMC to start up in fullscreen mode?

 

Any help is greatly appreaciated!

its the "\" key to switch. or in Prefs>system>video.  it should stay that way after a it relaunches. if not i would think it is not saving the pref file correctly. I unfortunately don't know where that pref file would be

Thank you. "\" worked perfectly. Plex remembers the setting, so no problems now.

Where would I enter "\" to make this work?? My 3D (technically all) movies are starting in windowed mode and I need them to be fullscreen. This really doesn't affect playback of 2D movies, but screws up the overlay of HSBS and TAB 3D files.

Running PMS on a Windows 7 PC, streaming to a Zeki Media Box connected to my Vizio 3d tv thru HDMI.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

that is the \ key on your keyboard when you are using Plex Media Center or Plex Home Theater on Windows, OS X or Linux. From what i can tell a  Zeki Media Box is an Android based system in which case ask in the Android section of forums. Cuz that is a completely different client.

That would be great if it worked but it doesn't.

thanks,

that was a post from 3 years ago on a product we no longer make or support

So where is it now? My current install (Windows 7) won't let me get out of full screen mode... Tried f11 which is kinda universal, but it flashes like it's accessing the size of the screen, but then stays full screen.

Thanks!

Where is what now? this thread is about the app "Plex Home Theater". We no longer make or support at all. It is not available for download from us.

Sorry, I thought it was for the client (Which I forgot was PMP not PMC), but that's what I had searched on, so when I found this I thought it was for the player, and never checked the header. I'll find that forum and ask there.

The answer for PMP is still backslash. @BigWheel could have been helpful instead of being the forum pedant.
