If the UI allows for playback to be shifted into a mini-window, then
MythNetvision supports a mechanism that lets you embed that same player
in a web page of your construction, allowing you to bypass all the extra
garbage in the source page. If you're instead talking about the
standard full-screen button, that's something completely internal to
flash that MythBrowser likely has no control over.

MythBrowser doesn't have volume controls, as it doesn't play audio or
video. Flash accesses your audio devices directly, again with no
control available to MythBrowser. As before, MythNetvision's custom web
page comes into play here. Certain video players are designed with the
intent that 3rd parties would embed them in their own websites. They
tasks. The web page can expose these abilities to MythNetvision,
allowing native remote control. See the Vimeo grabber for an example of
one that allows volume.
Hulu currently has no such interface. They allow embedding, but instead
directly. Aside from being able to flip the auto-play bit, I doubt
there is any mechanism for external control. Skimming through the
forums, I see two requests to Hulu Labs specifically for that feature,
and a third in Feature Requests that is asking for the same thing but
doesn't know the correct terminology.
