    Default Full screen direction

    When i play a video in Youtube or other video sites and i click the full screen icon does not go full screen vertical and only horizontally when i turn the phone to its side. Do you know of a app or a way to make the phone show full screen also vertically?

    Default Re: Full screen direction

    Youtube videos are wider than they are high (16X9 ratio of width to height), so you can't show them full screen on a screen that's higher than it is wide. It has nothing to do with the phone, it's mathematically impossible unless you stretch the picture out vertically. Then you get tall, thin people.

    When you hold the phone vertically, the picture takes up the full width of the screen, so it's shorter than the length. They could expand it to full screen, but they'd have to chop it off at the sides, so you'd see only about 1/3 of the picture horizontally.
