IPad Pro YouTube! Why can’t I stretch to full screen? Might as well watch on an iPhone because of the black stupid bas

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Why do they not just simply let you stretch the video horizontal so there’s no ugly black bars. Literally there’s no point in using an iPad because I can at least go full full screen on my iPhone. 

 

See this picture? Them black bars take up half the bloody screen wtf? I’m sure I don’t remember YouTube being this small on my ipad

The aspect ratio of the tablet doesn't match the video's. The only way to get it full screen is to enlarge the video but cut off the edges but you see less of the image or distort the image so all of it fits. And I'd argue neither are better than this.

ipads are 3 : 2 aspect ratio and the video you're watching is 16:9.

The point of using ipads is bigger screen. Even with the black bars, the view is still larger than the biggest iphones.

you can pinch zoom the video to get rid of the black bars but it will chopped the sides.

iPad mini has same problem. Not just youtube, any content that isn't its native format is affected. 16:9 games lose a ton of screen estate.

Not an Apple user by any means, but they use some weird screen resolutions. Your phone is probably closer to 16:9

Okay but my point is YouTube could just let you stretch the bottom and top without cutting out the edges,

 

like in VLC player if you have a movie and it’s blakc edged. Just stretch it horizontal then vertical

Why would I want to watch a distorted video? It would look something like this (pretend the black bars don't exist, I'm reusing your picture directly)

EDIT: The alternative is to cut off the image where it doesn't fit. Which means you'd be seeing less of the image. Like in the case of what happened with Bioshock

A 3:2 aspect ratio is sane (from a photography background) and not far from 16:9 at 13.5:9. No, iPads are like a trip back to the 80's. Hello 4:3 (12:9).

 

At least, iPad mini 2019 and iPad Pro 12.9 2018 are 4:3. iPad Pro 11 is... slightly less bad at just under 13:9. In short, when Apple came up with the iPad they went for mixed use cases, not primarily media consumption where most is in 16:9 or even wider. As such it is a poor choice unless it is remastered for the iPad, like the old days when TVs were 4:3 and you either had letterboxing, or pan and scan which is an edit of the film to decide which 4:3 part to show you. Blindly cropping means you will miss stuff, and non-aspect ratio stretching will distort.

Or get an Android tablet which are mostly 16:10

 

The Samsung S4, S5e, S6 are also equipped with quad AKG speakers, OLED screen, microsd expansion on top of ample internal storage.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

I’m watching unboxing videos I don’t care about 4K quality lol. 

 

I just wish wish there’s an option on YouTube to do it >:(

Because YouTube intends the content to be displayed in its native aspect ratio?

I don't record videos in 41:30 for no reason.


Volume / Normalized 100% / 74% (content loudness 2.7dB)

I think there are workarounds to have the video fit to eliminate black bars without stretching. Might not be one for the iOS YouTube app. Try the browser solutions.

What I don't get: why the urge to fill the screen?  Are you one of those folks who gets annoyed when a movie is presented in 21:9 on your 16:9 TV?  It's not like you have to eliminate black bars to get your money's worth.

 

The iPad's aspect ratio was a conscious tradeoff -- you don't get optimal space for video, but it's better for virtually everything else, whether it's browsing the web, playing games or getting work done.  Those 16:9 Android tablets bug me because they make so many compromises just so that video fills the screen.  Great if all you do is watch YouTube and Netflix all day, but lousy if you use your tablet for anything more.

Or YouTube can just let me custom stretch the top and bottom. 

 

Yes i get pissed off when movies are like that which is why I use my tv remote to put it into cinema mode which fills the damn screen. 

 

Couldn’t care less if it’s not the original quality or a ratio

 

again, I’m watching nothing that requires 1080p Fill he experience on my iPad so why would it matter if I was able to streatch it?

 

It Annoys me
