Wow, this app is almost EXACTLY like mine, QuikTime FS, which has been available for a long time.
Great idea, only about a year late.  Hope you weren't trying to copy me on purpose.

Check it out here...

But this application is Universal (optimized for PPC & Intel)
mac_xcoder replied on 20 Oct 2006
This application is so small and it only runs for a split second, just long enough to run a small AppleScript, so QuickTime will go full screen.
I could have rewritten mine to be Universal, but it's really not necessary. You will just end up with a larger file that runs for a split second to run that script.

wow Mr mac_xcoder, just because of your comment I'll try this soft and not yours.
Ever heard of "competition" ?

By the way I also did something similar - "QT Full Screen":

Actually, this app is 16k smaller than Quicktime FS and on a MBP, though they both launch quick, being universal it actually does launch faster, on the first bounce instead of after three. Your app is nice and compact/tidy, but being Universal is good, even for small programs that run for a second.

That being said, I'd like to see a streamlined, smaller window option, so once you kow what to do you can reduce it to a litle bar or even just one button you can put in the corner.

Virion, you now have a streamlined "button" version of my program available and it's UB, so it will open up for you on the first bounce.
And I'm gonna go ahead and put it out there... I'm working on a widget for this app, so get your photocopiers ready!  lol  Didn't mean to copy you Apple!  hahahahaha

I am the aurthor if this program (this is my non developer account. I just checked these comments, but I dont like to because I think it is bad karma. But yes, I coul make it a 2 button app a lot smaller. I will release a liter version of Fullscreen4Free, what is a good name for it? ("Fullscreen4Free Lite" sounds dumb to me). This was my 1st commercially released app, and my only completed program lol. I am also making a video game called Destruction: Hellz Wrath check it out at http://www.hellzwrath.tk and download it. And Mr. Mac_Xcoder, I sense a certan tention between you and I, no hard feelings, but my app pizzowns yurs ;)
-Chris "Gun" Brookens,
P.S. also look at my WoW (World of Warcraft for those of you who have a life) widget. It's called WoWidgets4Free, it searches quests and items.

If you have Quicksilver installed you can bind a shortcut to an applescript. I use Command+F to invoke the fullscreen mode script. You can find the script at http://www.macworld.com/weblogs/mac911/2005/08/fullscreen/index.php. It works great!

Look at the pictures below to see exactly what I've done.
