I've got a MacBook Pro with Retina. I've just updated to OS X 10.9 Maverick. I use Chrome as my web browser.

Recently, I've found that when Subtitle Smoothing is disabled, hitting the fullscreen does not make the video any larger (and fills the rest of the screen with blackness). The subtitles, however, look fine.

When subtitle smoothing is enabled, however, the fullscreen properly expands the video, but the subtitles lose their black outline. That black outline is really useful for reading the subtitles.

Is there a setting that lets me go fullscreen but keep the outline? Can I control the font settings somewhere?

Having the exact same problem, with the exact same setup (Macbook pro, Mavericks, chrome).

Any word on how to fix this? In the meantime I've just been using popped out mode to get mostly fullscreen without losing the outline on the subs.

roughly 1 month ago.

I too have this problem on my new Macbook Pro Retina, shipped with OS X Mavericks. If I watch FULLSCREEN, I lose the dark border around the white text. Other view modes, like in the browser or pop-out window, display the text border fine. When I bring a pop-out window into OSX's fullscreen app mode, I lose the border in the same way as if I hit fullscreen within the crunchy roll video player.

When I watch on an external monitor (a 1080p tv), I can watch in any viewing mode, including fullscreen, without losing the text border.

Hope this extra data helps a bit! It's not the worst thing in the world, but it does make certain scenes very hard to understand...

I hate to say it but, me too. Retina Macbook Pro. I noticed in Safari I can get a real fullscreen mode but the font outline is gone. Chrome won't even go fullscreen correctly.
