Would be nice if users had the ability to set their own preference to be that any video plays in theater mode.  Instead of having to select it for every video they watch.

or alternatively give us the ability to add a parameter to a video's url so that theater mode is selected automatically

This would be a nice addition to the Stream Settings page.

 

I wrote a browser script to automate this for me, may be helpful if anyone else needs the feature

let clicked = false;
let counter = 0;

const ticker = setInterval(theaterMode, 2000)

function theaterMode() {
  if (counter > 10 || clicked) {
    clearInterval(ticker)
  }
  const el = document.querySelector("button.amp-theater-icon.vjs-control.vjs-button")
  if (!el) {
    console.log("theater toggle mode not ready")
    counter++
    return
  }
  el.click()
  clicked=true
  clearInterval(ticker)
  console.log("theater mode enabled")
}
