Default PBS Kids not showing fullscreen

Something happened a little while ago (a month, maybe two?) that makes PBS Kids programs display in a small window in a web page, rather than fullscreen. It's like Boxee can't figure out where the video window is to scale it up, or how to click the "Big" button to make it fullscreen.

To reproduce the problem, select Martha Speaks from the TV Library and pick any random episode.

System is on OS X 10.6.5. I have reproduced the problem on both a Mac Mini and a Macbook Pro.

Any suggestions?

It may be that the website changed and Boxee hasn't updated how to accommodate that change. You might try reporting the issue to support ( and/or in their issue tracker at
Boxee beta on: HP TouchSmart 600xt/Windows 7 x64; HP dv6505/Windows 7 x86; and HP m8400f Vista x86 HTPC running Intelliremote, SageTV 7.0, Orb/MP-1, Audiogalaxy, and AirVideo, connected to Olevia 247 TFHD and Onyko TX-SR606 all controlled with a Harmony 550. Boxee Box v1.0.3.17064 connected to 32" Panasonic TC-L32X2; and last but not least, an HP EX490 MediaSmart Server (WHS) + MediaSonic for 10TB of storage.

I have the same issue. Not quite the same for the kids to have to watch it in that small window on a webpage.

@deafen did you ever find a solution?

I am also having this problem and there is no mouse cursor to click on the Full Screen button.

Lets start a jira already.

The XBMC add-on plays all the exact same feeds full screen, BTW. FWIW.
