Control the Anamorphic pixels


are some UI variable in the HTML5 player to stretch the image to a 16:9 when you have a 4:3 video prepared to be stretched (typical with sources from TV SD) . Maybe a variable to control the Anamorphic or pixel proportion?

I saw the stretchVideo UI variable but apart from it’s only for legacy I’m not sure that it could be useful.



HTML5 video tag cannot be stretched. The stretchVideo Flashvar works on the legacy Flash player only.
The player do not recalculates its size based on the video pixel aspect ratio.
Such behaviour might be achieved using a custom script which registers to the player “playerReady” event, determines the video pixels aspect ratio and resizes the player accordingly.
