Video resize unexpected
I have some video streams that are either in 16:9 or 9:16 (portrait mode). With the 'stretching' option set to 'uniform', the player 'height' set to less than the original video and using the flash player, the result is as expected (can see the entire video, resized down, with black borders on the left and right).
However, using the JS player, the result is completely different. The video seems to be "zoomed in", stretched on both sides in order to remove the black borders.
1. Why is this behavior different from JS to Flash?
2. Is there anything I can do to avoid this?
3. Would it be possible to have another 'stretching' option called 'fit' that would resize the video until it fits either the width or height (not both at the same time)?
I'm experiencing this with JWPlayer 7.3.6 in Safari using this stream: https://cdn-stream-integration-1.tsu.co/bb2a0ddb-acb8-4afa-9f56-7f581d076cb6/manifest.m3u8
