JWPlayer 6 fullscreen on play with Moto X

I recently upgraded to JWPlayer 6 from 5 on this page:

Playing the video in JWPlayer 5 on my Moto X (or most Android devices) would automatically put you into full screen, which made interacting with the play/pause and tracking widgets much easier.

With 6, that behavior seems to be gone. Any ideas why it's happening? I tried to hack up a JS API call to mimic the behavior, but there's no good way to trigger fullscreen from JS (for obvious reasons).

You might be able to use jwplayer().onDisplayClick(), and then set jwplayer().setFullscreen(true);

Works great, thanks Ethan! Now I just have to figure how to sniff for Android device so it only gets stuck in there for them ...
