Video shrinks (youtube, dailymotion...)

Unread post by iBenny » 2019-05-20, 21:13

Hi

with PM 28.5 (64) in Windows 10, since one month the full screen videos shrinks and the background of youtube page shows at the right and bottom depending of the PM windows size.

Here under per example, the right and bottom bars are the background of the youtube page showing due to the video shrinkage.

A new bug ?

It does the same in PM safe mode...

That doesn't happen for me. (PM 28.5.0, Win 7 x86)

YouTube (link).
(and for info, fullscreen looked the same with both classic and new YT layouts)

Dailymotion (link).

What happens if you use a new profile ?

Youtube window problems

Unread post by iBenny » 2019-07-13, 22:47

Hi

Since couple of months, PM have problems displaying youtube pages and full screen videos by not filling the entire PM windows. Almost always, there is a "blank" border around youtube video pages (not full screen), and a white border (vertical band) at right of full screen videos and very often a bottom border too. I have presently v 28.6.0.1 64bit PM.

Any documented bug like this one so far ?

Many thanks.

Best regards,
iBenny

Have you tried safe mode?
Can you post your troubleshooting informations?
Do you use an override for the user agent string that is not the default one? If not, do you have a compatibility string (Firefox or Gecko) or the Native one?
I'm not getting anything strange in full screen, by the way.

URL?
And screenshots of what you're seeing?
What is your browser zoom level at youtube?

Sorry for the late reply ! I haven't received any email notice about your comments...

Hi guys !

Vanilla, I have NO idea of what you're talking about so, the answer to your question must be "no" ! The troubleshooting infos are added down below.

Here are some shots :
1- Normal window :

2- After having moved the PM window right side a tid bit and back :
Image

3- Zoom parameters :
Image

4- Full screen video; notice the right vertical white band (hard to see but copy/paste in Irfanview) :
Image

5- Troublesome full screen after having moved the right side of PM windows as in pic #2; note the loss of bottom video where the mouse can navigate and interact with the hidden progress bar :
Image

Regarding the YouTube video res parameters, it is set to "automatic" thus, in this case, set to 1080 HD res. and the video mode is "cinema". Firefox don't have this problem...

Many thanks for you insights

Best regards

Moving this to general support since it's not a clear browser bug report that can be acted on.
Also, merged the two(!) threads about the same topic by the same poster into one. Please don't open news threads for the same issue.

Thanks Moonchild for the merge ! I forgot I had opened one before and found it afterward.

Hi
In my case I use the browser and place the videos on the whole screen and I have not had any problem with video shrinks in the different video platforms
