- Rated 3 out of 5by itsTyrion, 2 years agoI don't even have an ultrawide, but I use this add-on because letterboxed 21:9 in theater mode is super annoying
Edit: Makes YT pretty laggy. Not immediately, but over time
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13828963, 6 years agoI really like this extension when watching mixed aspect-ratio videos, the extension quickly catches the black bars and shrinks or stretches the video automatically to the correct ratio.
Sadly I had to uninstall the extension, as it breaks video players on several sites including reddit. The blacklist option doesn't work to resolve this issue. Would love to install again someday when this is fixed.
Developer responseposted 6 years agoThe issue with reddit and other sites should be fixed. It's not a proper fix, I've just set extension to not work on any site other than youtube or netflix and sites that you explicitly enabled via the extension button/popup.
I've also kinda solved the problem with the memory leak: extension will only check for changes in aspect ratio once per second if the video is playing. This massively reduces RAM usage back to acceptable/negligible levels.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13321847, 6 years agoI use this addon to watch Netlix in 21:9, recently it stopped working on Netflix. The control panel isn't displayed, using D to force 21:9 isn't working either.
On youtube, the control panel is being displayed and the key shortcut D is also working.
But as i mainly use this addon when watchin Netflix (i rarely need to watch a music video in 21:9) im really bothered by it not working.
Also, even as it still worked on Netflix - the automatic ratio detecion never worked, not on youtube and not on netflix.
Would appreciate it greatly if you could fix this soon.
Developer responseposted 6 years agoPlease make bug reports on Github, as it makes it easier for me to track them.
Regarding netflix: thanks for mentioning it. Unfortunately, I won't be able to fix netflix until at least two months from now due to financial issues.
Regarding autodetection: It was specifically stated it only works on Netflix. Are you sure you sure your Netflix is in English (and that the movie is in English/original title)? Are you sure that the movie is on iMDB _and_ OMDB?
Given that I'm finally freed of my real-life commitments that took most of my time for the past six months, I'm slowly starting working on this extension again, which makes me rather interested in the details of any reported bug.
