Will you have a fit-to-screen button for Galaxy S8 users?

Hi there, just received my new phone and was wondering if there was a chance you could add a button to make the media fit the 18,5:9 ratio on the phone? I'd love that feature, I have a Plex Pass, btw. :)

    We need 4K HDR playback as well as S8 has HDR display....

    I haven't found a player that can do HDR playback on S8 yet...

    YES!! Please add a way to make our media fit these new aspect ratios of these new phones. Was watching a Blu-ray movie I remuxed while on the train today on my S8+ and had black bars on all four sides of the video...This has to be fixed.

    Did you crop in your encode black bars top and bottom?
    Then it would fit great with no side borders.

    I assume we are talking about zoom in - as YouTube does

    UGH! You're right, I forgot to crop. Other movies where I know I cropped the bars fit perfectly on the screen. I guess I would like a zoom feature then...LoL

    if you go to settings you can choose to use an external player, I use MX player pro and it fills the whole s8+

    problem is I'm streaming the content from another server. the files are not on my device so I can't play them with MX Player pro, right?

    Yeah, if I use sync, I can use the Samsung video player and it looks amazing, but for content steamed from my server it's all boxed in. I'd love to see a playback mode that uses the whole display.

    Does anyone have stuttering issues when playing a movie. I'm having quite a bit of stuttering and it's quite distracting, I'm coming from an LG V20 which played my movies smoothly. Btw I have the snapdragon version of the S8.
