It depends on the submission. The player that plays .mp4 movies has a Fullscreen option that really fills the whole screen. As for flash submissions, you can dim the lights and expand the submission. it's up to the author to define whether the flash is scalable or not, though. They could include a fullscreen option within the file, but otherwise I don't think that's possible.

Maybe there are browser plugins with this feature btw.

Hmm, is there a way to just search for .mp4 movies?

Not that I know of. It would be a useful feature addition though.

If you're looking for an example submission, here's one.

Sweet, Thanks for the help!

Yeah, it would be nice to be able to search for content that's not related to it's genre or category (Games, Movie, Channel, Series Name, etc.) but more related to it's capability. Search filters like video quality/dimensions and time might be useful in the overall user experience.

Some people may visit Newgrounds just for a quick 30 second laugh; while others may visit for a longer length feature.

No problem :)

True. With .swf files it might be hard to extract information on movie length, but with .mp4 that shouldn't be difficult at all. A feature to sort submissions by definition or length would be useful. I'll add that to my wishlist. :) File size would apply to all submissions, so that shouldn't be too hard to implement. Any staff reading this? :P

It would also be useful to browse a complete list of flash submissions in regular view, without thumbnails, if your going by title.
