Plex Media Player Stretch Screen / Aspect Ratio Functionality Does Not Work like Plex Home Theater

tdixlertdixler Members, Plex Pass Posts: 46 Plex Pass

One of the features I always used with Plex Home Theater was the "V" key which would let me cycle through different aspect ratios (Stretch screen, 4:3, 16:9, etc..). I specifically liked the stretch screen option. I've read a ton of threads on this but it just doesn't work the way it used to. Is this going to be added into Plex Media Player?

    @tdixler have you tried the z key during playback? That flips through various AR values, like stretch 16:9, 4:3, etc. Or are you saying that doesn't provide the desired behavior when you use it? If the latter, please describe what it does vs what you want it to do.
