FilmOn and JTV channels

Postby sensrhps » Sun Nov 14, 2010 3:30 pm

Quick question. Recently the channels show up as automatically pillarboxed instead of full screen. I understand with JustinTV that most cams are Pillarboxed but some aren't, and same goes for FilmOn. Is there any way to give an option to the user in settings for the channel to pick 4x3 or 16x9? Just curious... :D

Great job on the channels, btw!

Actually, all Justin.tv streams are 4x3. Some are just displayed letterboxed. The fact that they were fullscreen previously was actually a Roku bug that was fixed in the latest firmware. I'm looking into adding a zoom feature in the next version.

As for the FilmOn channel, all of those should be fullscreen unless the stream is 4x3. Make sure you have the latest (1158) firmware by going to Settings->Player Info. It could be that you're experiencing the squeezed video bug that they just fixed in the new 2.8 release.
