Full screen video has a border


We did some testing and this is what we found out:

yuv420p, 640x360 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9]
Full screen stretches ok

yuv420p, 1280x720 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9]
Full screen has border all around

Embed settings are:

width: "100%",
aspectratio: "16:9"
stretching: "none"

If we don't have stretching set to "none" (exactfit, fill, uniform), the video has border in normal (non full screen) mode and shows ok in full screen mode. So basicly we can't have the video looking ok in both modes.

Kind regards,

I've found out what was causing the problem. We had this set in the CSS

video {
max-width: 100%;
height: auto;

So the fix was to remove the max-width for the container which has the jw player in it.
