Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First off, this is an amazing software that has no match on the web today. 1.3.5 works great for me with firefox 3.5.1. I have a request, which I hope the creator will at least read.

Could you please look into stretching the video streams ?
I use your great add-on to maximize video streams, and sometimes the video was not recorded in the right aspect ratio. Your window aspect just changes the video player size, not the stream. I think it will be really useful to allow disproportionate stretching to a defined ratio (4:3, 16:9, 5:4, 16:10) not just the window size. Another good idea is to allowing zooming, or basically fit the content based on height or width, to cut off the black bars in the video stream.

Thank you very much for all the work you put into this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.5). 

Changing aspect?

Hi MikeZ88,

With regard to changing the aspect of "video-streams":

Since my extension is only able to change the dimensions of the actual Flash content (in this case the "video player"), I consider it highly unlikely that this would result in a corresponding change in the dimensions, and certainly not in the aspect, of the video-stream being played. It may be, for some players, that the video-size is changed along with the player (at least I must assume so, since you probably wouldn't use FGM with video-players otherwise). However, since the aspect of a video stream is something inherent in the stream itself, it is likely to be fixed by the player-code.

If you e-mail me a link to one of the players you use, and which you know to work with FGM, I will try and see if anything happens to the video, if I make my code maximize the player using a different aspect-ratio. In the unlikely case that it works, I will of course make sure to include some kind of "aspect modification" feature in the next version (at some point I may add some kind of "manual size entry" feature anyway, but unless the above gives a positive result, it won't be very high on my list of priorities)...

Cheers,

A-)
