Re: YouTube fullscreen not working right

Click for full size
Yup, you're viewing a 4:3 video on a 16:9 screen so you will get black bars on the side even in fullscreen mode. This has nothing to do with YouTube's update, it has to do with displaying the video in the aspect ratio it was uploaded.

Looks the same on my 16:9 laptop. It is what it is.

You want 16x9 well it doesn't display correctly. This what the 16x9 video in fullscreen modes looks like. Let me tell you something I could display a 4x3 video with correctly before. Now that is what a a 4x3 look like in the picture up above.

That is what the 4x3 video looked like in the fullscreen mode before Google made all these shitty changes to YouTube.

Okay, so it seems like you have a 16:10 monitor so you're still going to get bars on the side with 16:9 videos.

On my 16:9 monitor, that videos doesn't have any side-bars.

If YouTube DID change anything, they FIXED it so aspect ratios work CORRECTLY now when using fullscreen. I guess one's man shit is another man's proper viewing.

I don't see any problem. Both videos play correctly on my computer and from what you have posted they are also playing correctly on yours. I watched both in both Explorer and Firefox and the display is correct on both browsers.
