Post Reply Full screen in iPhone X?
Posted 2/21/18 , edited 2/21/18
The current version of Crunchyroll for iOS does not support stretching to fill the entire screen of iPhone X. I think that is an important addition for users of this phone. Is it scheduled for upcoming updates?

thank you,

In my personal opinion, stretching anime to wrong aspect ratio would just look bad. Basically everything would be 22% too wide, distorting the look at feel of the characters and other objects in the video.

That's not the case when you use that screen filling in other apps like VLC. It really looks nice. That's why I think it would a nice addition for iPhone X users.

Screen filling means that the bottom and top of the video is cut off. There is no way to force a 16:9 source into a 19.5:9 aspect ratio without cutting off parts of the video or distorting proportions. That is why black bars are added at the sides to maintain unadulterated video.

At least i like to see feature where we get the option to stretch the video.

Yeah I think it would be good at least to have the option to expand the video until all of the iPhone X screen is filled. That happens in iOS apps like VLC and you don't lose that much of screen, and it looks gorgeous.

Id love to get this feature so I could atleast enjoy watching anime on the crunchyroll app. Anime looks great fit to screen on Netflix or Amazon.
