Hi,

I have one of those old CRT TVs. Yes, I know, I should upgrade, but that time has yet to come. When watching video full screen sometimes the subtitles run off the sides of the visible picture because the CRT overscan. Is it possible to change the player zoom in full screen mode or make the subtitles wrap to, say, the middle 90% of the screen? How about embed the player in a frame to make it a bit smaller (then I can hit F11 in Chrome/Windows to get rid of all the window decoration? I tried this quickly, but the pop out player just redirected itself out of the frame and occupied the full page.

You should change your default video quality to SD or 480P and then try the popout player. The window for 720P videos would be much bigger than your TV screen since old CRT TVs are only 480P.

Thanks, I was already set to 480P. I did find that using the popout player set to 480P then hitting F11 to send it full screen in Chrome helped a bit because the controls at the bottom of the screen cause the video to be smaller, but for some reason I could see tearing that went away if playback was set to full screen (i.e. flash full screen, not Chrome full screen). I am not sure if trying another browser will help, but I will experiment when I have time. I can also try setting up a different screen configuration for my TV that overscans less, but I was hoping to to try and avoid that.
