This just happened to me on my PC. My moniter is 1080p, and I first noticed it when watching Level-E episode 2 in 720p. It used up a fraction of my screen and it looked like the screenshots posted by other users who encountered this problem. I was able to fullscreen the video in 480p with no problems. The same thing happened when I opened up a new tab and tried to watch Naruto Shippuden in 720p to test it. I was also able to watch that in 1080p just fine. For now Carlos' solution seems to work, and the video doesn't look different like ergZay said. Hopefully you guys at CR can fix the bug.

It sounds like you're on a normal 1080p screen. The issue I talked about only happened when using a retina type hi-dpi mode. A 1080p monitor wouldn't use something like that.

I have the complete oppisite issue. When I attempt to go fullscreen the show goes white and video freezes.

This issue only happens when I enter fullscreen mode on my external display, with mirror display off.
The only way I found to solve this issue is to enable the mirror display. I was then able to watch any anime in fullscreen on my external display without any problem.
Hope it helps :)

I think my issue is kinda related to this.

I used SRWare Iron to watch some shows, because reasons. Then I started watching shows on my default browser, Firefox. I noticed that on Firefox on fullscreen, I got this black frame around the picture, that changed size sometimes. This didn't happen on Iron.

I have the newest Flash version, so I think the my problem is related to browser somehow.

Are you seeing a different experience while watching the same episode in both browsers?

Also, a quick search for SRWare Iron, and it sounds extremely sketchy. You could use Chromium, which is the open-source base for Chrome before Google adds their proprietary features and tracking. With a few minor tweaks, you'd get a comparable experience, and without relying on a closed-source browser.

I don't watch same episode on two different browsers, but when watching same show (JoJo), I noticed this.

I know this is straight up years later, but I was having the problem streaming the video in fullscreen on a TV I was connected to. However, I changed the screen settings from extended display to mirrored display and it fixed it.

I happened to stumble upon discussion about AMD GPU driver yesterday. My problem was caused by that. Crimson drivers has this "Video" tab. There's "AMD Steady Video". I updated my drivers sometime ago and forgot to set it on.

Anyways, it seems that Steady Video causes cropping on some video. Weird thing was that this only happened on Firefox, not on Chrome when I watched videos here. Now I have this setting turned off.
