Android Native SDK - Streatching option like FILL, EXACT_FILL, UNIFORM, NONE are not working

1. In Web I can see some options like Exact fit/ fill to remove black borders around the player. I have implemented Androrid SDK and able to play m3u8 file but it shows black borders around. I used below option but still the same.


2. I have implemented JwPlayer in RecyclerView. I just placed the player only in active index row position. While Playing first video I just got black flickering effect on screen. I refered this github sample. It shows the same

Can one pls support on this? Thanks in advance

1. You need to setStretching prior to instantiation.

2. We advice against using multiple players within the same screen:
Using the player within a ListView or RecyclerView is not fully supported due to known limitations, such as the use of a SurfaceView.

Sounds like it’s a device specific issue. The device may not be able to play that content.
