Are you sure you're not running the "normal" plugin from your distribution 
instead of the one you've compiled?

In any case, the reason why fullscreen does not work is well-known. The 
Firefox and ActiveX plugins simply do not implement fullscreen at all. They 
rely on LibVLC to do it. However, LibVLC does not support fullscreen when the 
video is embedded.
