    Default Google Play Movies on Verizon Gnex

    I noticed HD option is more wide screen and not full screen. What does the standard option that I'd usually a buck less look like on Gnex? I was hoping for a full screen option.

    HD is typically in 16:9 and that's why it's wide. Standard def is 4:3 and would probably display letter boxed.

    But would 4:3 fill up entire screen?

    I honestly don't know. All the movies I've rented were HD. Ultimately you may just have to rent one to find out. Or, if you have a SD movie at home, encode it to MP4 with Handbrake and then transfer it to your GNex to see how it plays.

    1280×720 or 16:9 is the correct definition for our screens. It's what youtube hd is in. Watch a recentyoutube video and it encompasses the full screen.

    I do not think they are looking for full screen as in 4:3 but are looking for the entire screen of the phone to be filled. The HD movies are 16:9 and will have letter box on top and bottom which is normal since the original Movie is filmed in a different aspect ratio.

    Movies are not filmed in 16:9, they're filmed for the movie theater in 1.37:1 or 2.35:1

    Think about how tall the movie screen would have to be to be 16:9. It's ultra wide and thin for theaters.

    That's why letterbox movies have the black top and bottom .

    Anyway, hd is optimized to fit our phones however only the youtube app can get the soft buttons to hide to show it all
