YouTube UX - Pop Out

Hi, I’ve embedded a YouTube video to my site Specifically, I’m referring to the logged in experience when you’re on the home dashboard at

However, it’s basically just a thumbnail and I’d like to help the users see it larger upon clicking it (my users don’t really get the whole ‘full screen mode’ button).

The video element inside the pop-up takes its ID from the pop-up rather than the database.

Similar to this …

Yes, that’s what we do at
