Dynamic Resize

I would like our videos to play full screen for mobile devices. At this time we will only support iPad, iTouch, iPhone and Android. Blackberry if possible.

1 - what is the best way to determine the current screen size of the device loading the video
2 - is there a way to dynamically resize the video player? Would I use the jQuery plugin to to do this?
3 - is there a way to specify width=100% for the video player? Would this be honored by all devices listed above?
4 - do all these devices support jQuery?

    Hi Chris (Wylie)

    did you ever get to the bottom of getting the player to resize dynamically on the ipad? I just came across your question on the board whilst on my search for the same.

    Any thoughts v much welcome.
