About

QTXAutoPlayFullscreen is a SIMBL Plugin that alters Quicktime Player X to automatically start playing when entering full screen.
It also automatically resigns full screen when the movie has finished playing.

Installing QTXAutoPlayFullscreen

In order to enable SIMBL plugins you need to install SIMBL, you can download the latest release at: http://www.culater.net/software/SIMBL/SIMBL.php

After installing SIMBL you need to download the QTXAutoPlayFullscreen.bundle.zip file, extract it and drop QTXAutoPlayFullscreen.bundle in ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/
You can create the folder if it doesn’t already exist.

Now the plugin will be loaded when you start Quicktime Player X. If it was already running you need to restart Quicktime Player X.
