Videos have a border on the top-hand side and left-hand side

  • When videos are maximized, they have a border on the top-hand side and the left-hand side of the screen. I've upload my DxDiag to dropbox with a shareable link below.

    • This only occurs on the monitor that is non-primary (without taskbar)
    • If I install a tool that allows me to place tool bars on other monitors, such as UltraMon, the issue fixes itself; although sometimes the task bar gets stuck in front of the video
    • This occurs in Chromium and Chrome, but not with Firefox or IE.
    • I've tried older versions of Chrome and the issue does not occur
    • If the browser itself is NOT maximized on the screen, the issue doesn't occur when I maximize the video

  • If it happens in Chrome then its a problem with the renderer and it will have to be fixed there.

  • Where do you see this issue? Do you have screen shots?

  • Example Image

    You can see that there is a border which you can see the desktop, but the video isn't cut off. It just seems to not have scaled to full screen. I would have expected it to be cut off at the bottom and the right sides but it isn't.

  • I actually just noticed that the top/left side are actually cut off. I'm used to using the fix I noted above so I never watch videos like this, but yeah you can tell that the control box is cut off as well as the code on the LHS
