Why don't clips preview full screen?

    I know!  I'm a teacher and used Wingclips for several of my lessons.  My students loved it!  But $15 for one short movie clip is a lot, and teacher's don't get paid a lot here in NC, so now I have to find other means of teaching.  I already spend so much of my own money for school - I really can't spend anymore.  This is a shame.  :(

    I used this site to engage my students in short writing pieces, as well as to connect with our readings and themes we were wrestling with in the classroom. I am like the teachers who have commented before me -- this site is now useless, and even though I created an account, I will not be using it. The site is overpriced, and after using it and singing its praises at conferences I lead, I now feel like a fool. I will not be using your site, nor recommending it, and that is a shame.

    I agree with gnoble91.  I recommended this site to fellow educators as a way to engage students and to introduce themes present in literature that they will be reading.  Now I have to go to these teachers and let them know that the site has changed and it will no longer be useful for us in our classrooms.  If there was a nominal membership fee, I'd be willing to pay it, but the price to download a single clip is astronomical.  I guess it was too good to be true.

    I thought it was a free site as well. Am I mistaken or is it really going to cost me 10$ for one short clip for my second graders? I am so disappointed! I wasted so much time and got my hopes up.  I work in an inner city school, desperately trying to motivate these kids in a positive way on a school budget of 60$ per year.  That is for paper, pencils,- EVERYTHING. Say it really isn't so?

    You can still get the same benefit from this site by just showing the preview in the size that comes up on the screen. Students are able to look past the watermark that faintly covers the clip and can catch the gist of the clip in the small size. It's called adaptation. Sometimes educators have to do with what is available.

    Just look here for ideas, then go to youtube and see if you can find the clip there.

    I use the zoom/magnify option on my pc.  The quality is not proportionate but it is a more full screen for viewing.

    I know that this works on the Apple/Mac as well.

    I agree with both of you. I too am a teacher, and my colleagues and I have used this site for a few years. I can't believe that I must pay in order to toggle to full screen. Wow!

    WINGCLIPS!!!!  Fix this!!!!  You will lose a lot of great educators, who would happily welcome and share your site with others.  You're making a huge mistake and will notice your patronage go WAAAAAY down if you don't do something about this soon.

    Very miss leading as to what I'm getting when I purchase credits, $15 for one short 2 minute video which cost me 6 credits. Last time I'm using this site, overpriced.

    NOT COOL!!! our church pays the monthly fee and i don't want to save anything to a hard drive. i own almost all the movies i have used thru WingClips, but it is much quicker to navigate with this sight..... looks like i'm going to rethink this now.... NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER!!!!

    I agree. I have recommended this site to many youth pastors to use when trying to illustrate a point. The wingclips name shows up in the background but I cant work with it if I cannot toggle to full screen. Please change. I find it hard to believe that there are copyright restrictions for keep the option to toggle to full screen. We are not showing the whole movie.
