Unwanted borders on video component

Tue Mar 12, 2019 1:50 pm

The app I'm developing has a video component that is not full screen, and when I load a video into it, there are two very thin white borders on the right and left of the video.

The video component height & width are very non-standard, I'm wondering if it is caused by issues related when scaling the video size?

Any suggestions would help. It's ugly! haha

16 is the magic number!
All videos should be divisible by 16 or at least 8 or 4. If not scaling can and will most likely be off, resulting in either a 1px line on the top and bottom or sides.

I suggest trying that first. Cheers

Thank you for the suggestion.

Unfortunately, I tried that and had no success, the lines were still there. I tried various dimensions, all multiples of 16, with no change. The lines were still showing.

If anyone else has any other suggestions, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

You might check if your tv has any overscan settings available to expand the display so the bars don't show on the afflicted device.
