    1. Get your friends to tell their friends to tell their friends to watch it
    2. Make a Facebook group to promote the video and get people to like it and watch it
    3. Post the link on forums

    You should look into internet marketing strategies. If you have a video that you want a lot of people to see, try creating a landing page explaining the benefits of watching the video. You can use a site like Weebly to accomplish this. Then, do specific keyword research so you can optimize the page you've created for search engines. If you do your research and perform SEO practices, you will get more traffic to the video.

    Also, this is just one way you could promote your video. There are tons of different marketing strategies out there that could help you.

      It depends on which video-sharing sites you're talking about. If you embed videos in your website, sometimes you can add an option in the HTML embed code to autostart the video (set autostart=true). I am not sure if you can achieve this with Firefox plugins as all the viewers of your video would need the plugin to be installed.

    this question is difficult to answer without knowing which sites you are referring to.

    In general, streaming videos will have an option that lets you switch to full screen mode. Just go through the buttons in the video menu to find it.

    Are you asking what you can do when this option does not exist? In that case please specify where this is the case. Thank you.

      I think Vivek is talking about increasing video exposure as opposed to increase the video player. I think one way to increase video views could be to reach out to fellow video users with similar uploaded content and users who have subscribed to the uploaders. You could invite them to check out your channel and videos because you're offering quality material that might suit their taste and is similar to those that they're fans of. I've seen Youtubers do this. It might be the same in other video-sharing sites.
