post width and truncated videos

24 posts in this topic

Some times when I try to watch an imbedded video a portion of the video is truncated to make room for the banners and stuff on the right hand side of the screen. Even the button to "watch this video on youtube" is inaccessible. Is there something I need to change in my profile settings??

It only seems to affect the top of the thread, further down it widens up.

Hope that makes sense...

Edit: Test video (added by iacas Sat, 23 Feb 2013 11:17:42 +0500)

Ernest,

It happens like that with the videos when you don't have the window maximized to the full screen.  At least, that is what happens to me.

It happens to me even when I do have the window maximized.  I am using Chrome Version 24.0.1312.57 m

I do not think this happens at home, on my mac.

I'm using chrome as well, on a mac.

Oddly, I returned to thread that prompted this one and everything was fine even though I didn't change anything on my end....

Maybe it's Chrome then.  I use IE here at work and Safari on a Mac at home.  Both have worked OK when I have the window mazimized.

If you can narrow this down and/or post a screenshot, that'd be helpful.

Next time it happens I'll take a screen shot.

is this an example of what you're encountering?

the above image was taken with chrome closed down to about 5/8 of the total viewing surface of my 15" laptop. the next image was with chrome completely filling my screen, but with the lowest possible resolution settings (800x600).

please note that both of these images are of my entire screen, and how different the images are. make sure your graphical settings are the same at work and home - if your PC at work is set to a lower resolution, everything is going to be bigger and take up more space.

Yup. That's it. Seems to come and go at random. Only when it's a video I really want to see though. :-(

Videos are hard coded at a certain size. If your browser window is too small to fit the left-hand and right-hand columns (if the post is in the top section where there IS a right-hand column), then it will be cut off.

Stop looking on such a tiny display or browser window. :)

15" MacBook Pro with the browser window maximized, that should be fine right? That's what I'm using... Not a big issue just weird.

Yes. But you haven't posted a screenshot. Looks okay here.

it sounds like it would have to be an issue with your display settings - a maximized browser window (regardless of screen size) should display this forum in its full width. 2012-13 macbook pro's have a native resolution of 2880x1800 - check and make sure your graphical settings are not extremely low (i.e. set to "larger text").

It happened again, first time since my OP.

I'm not very tech savvy and I'm totally new to the mac world. Resolution is set to 1280x800.

Looks like you're zoomed in to me.  When I zoom in on my 24" screen the same thing happens.

Yep, that fixed it. Odd, I'm pretty sure I tried this (command 0 to un-zoom) last time and it didn't work.

But thanks nonetheless, it works this time.

Here's what mine looks like.  Only happens near the top of the thread to make room for banners.
