I just tried on of our videos on my Google Pixel phone Android 10 in Chrome browser 86.0.4240.75 and it doesn’t fully go fullscreen, leaving the white bar at the bottom, that was not happening before.
Also as a feature request: it would be nice to be able to double tap on the video in the left or right area to skip 10 seconds forward or backwards, just like it is done in YouTube, Vimeo and some other HTML players.
thank you for bringing this to our attention.
We have tested this issue on the device you described and we can confirm experiencing this issue. It only happens on Google Pixel devices with Android 10 and 11. We will take a closer look at this issue and get back to you soon.
I found what we need to improve about how we call the HTML5 fullscreen function – navigationUI needs to be set to “hide”. We will make that change.
We have received similar request for easier mobile seek forward and backward. I will check with Alec if we like that YouTube-like double tap interface.
Tested, that is fixed now, thank you very much!
Just as additional feedback, I think it makes sense to automatically rotate the video in landscape mode on the phone when user clicks full screen button, and upon living the full screen rotate it back, just like YouTube app does, It forces the user to follow the position of the video and use the the best position.
Presently when I go full sreen in FV the video plays in small, then the user should think to rotate the phone to landscape, and when they leave the full screen they are left with the landscape version of the site which can be confusing. Doing the auto rotate, will force people to follow the position of the screen, and the UX will be much smoother I think.
Not sure if it’s possible to return the screen to horizontal mode upon leaving the screen, but youtube video embed certainly can rotate the video upon entering full screen
Yes are enabled the 4 options on mobile devices setting.

I tried in different android devices with chrome also in my phone xiaomi mi a3 with a stock android
thank you very much.
I see that when I play the video it does enter fullscreen, but not the landscape mode.
If I then exit the fullscreen it pauses the video. Then if I continue playing the video it does enter fullscreen again and this time in the landscape orientation.
Seems to me something has changed in one of the recent Chrome versions. I hope we can fix this, as some of these advanced browser functions require user gesture to have the permission.
we prepared a fix for this for the next FV Player release. You can test it on https://foliovision.com
If you want the fix right now you please reinstall FV Player from this link: https://github.com/foliovision/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/archive/master.zip
To do that you will have to first deactivate and delete the current FV Player plugin you are using. WordPress will warn you that you might loose settings and data, but it’s not the case with our plugin, no settings now videos will be lost. Or you can just replace the plugin files via FTP.
We are also fixing the bug which causes the scroll position to not restore properly when leaving fullscreen on mobile.
Our next goal is to make it work on iOS: https://foliovision.com/support/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/how-to/disable-or-hide-items-from-the-control-bar
