I am using the mediaplayer in a page and the video shows up fine .withing the confines of the page .. But i also want to provide the ability to show in full screen and setting the IsFullScreenVisible to true on the property page does not really have any effect. I was hoping that would show a fullscreen button on the controls bar and let the user go full screen when clicked.

I am still using the "Player Framework for Windows Phone 8 Dec 3, 2012, Stable"
Is this fixed in the latest releases. or is there something wrong that i am doing ?

IsFullScreenVisible = true now causes a button to appear in your toolbar. This was checked in on 6/21 so you will need the newer version to get this change.

However, please note that you still need to handle the IsFullScreenChanged event to get your app to expand the size of the MediaPlayer to fit the full screen. Unfortunately, we cannot do this automatically because of the way Xaml works and all the possible ways the MediaPlayer could be added to your page (I can elaborate more on this if you're interested).
