Zoom zoom.

Yeah, I don't approve of the title either.

Are you ever on a web page with an embedded video that you want to quickly watch full-screen without having to leave the page? Well, if you have a Mac and a scroll wheel (or trackpad with two-fingered scroll), it's really easy.

First, make sure you're running Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later. Choose "About this Mac" from the Apple menu to check. If you're running 10.4.x, you can update using Software Update.

Then, hold down the control key and scroll up. It should then zoom in and, follow the cursor wherever you move it. To zoom out, scroll down. You can adjust this feature in the Keyboard & Mouse section of System Preferences.
