Not according to the spec:
"User agents should not provide a public API to cause videos to be shown
full-screen. A script, combined with a carefully crafted video file,
could trick the user into thinking a system-modal dialog had been shown,
and prompt the user for a password. There is also the danger of "mere"
annoyance, with pages launching full-screen videos when links are
clicked or pages navigated. Instead, user-agent-specific interface
features may be provided to easily allow the user to obtain a
full-screen playback mode"
