Why is there a white strip at the top of youtube video in full screen?

@tetraguy hm... yeah, it's somehow sad.
But for full-screen-applications I use since a while just mpv-player, it has an inbuild youtube-dl which allows you to watch also video streams, without the strip in full-screen mode
Recently Opera got more resource hungry while playing videos, so sometimes the videos with higher resolution start lagging, that's also why I use the mpv-player, runs smooth for that. My laptop is rather old, but those videos doesn't seem to lag in e.g. Firefox, so I hope they will fix that sometime.
Maybe we as a community could test this a bit further, regarding the window-manager:
I use XFCE with X11 and get the white strip.

I have the same problems for very long time on several machines on Xubuntu 18.04.
Current Opera release I use is 76.0.4017.154, but problem appeared somewhere on 65-67 I think. Neither Firefox nor Chromuim is affected.
Here is screenshot in two variations: original and with black outline to make problem more clear:
Please help, this line is so annoying

Not sure if it's Linux specific but when I watch Youtube videos at full screen, there is a very narrow with line on the top of the video (above the video name, across the whole screen).
I tested in Chrome and Firefox, and had no such issue.

I see this issue is old and still wasn't resolved
