    Videos stuck in wide screen mode

    Recently something happened so when I watch video online and put them on full screen, they show up wide screen so it's black on top and bottom of screen (above and below video). This make movies look stretched side-ways and actors, etc look wider than they are supposed to be. I tried every PC and TV setting I could find.

    It does help if you fill out all of your system spec's. If video is in widescreen, I would start with the application that you are using, then checking the tv to see if it is on Zoom or Full/16:9.

    How do i check the applications that the websites are using? Right clicking the video doesn't give me option for the app they use to play the video.
