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

Same bug with Opera 77.0.4054.277 and Opera 78.0.4093.103 beta on Arch Linux running Wayland session of Gnome 40.2.0.
Chromium, Vivaldi and Firefox installed on the same system
do not have this bug.

I disabled "Use hardware acceleration when available" under Settings/Advanced/System and was able to get rid of that white strip I haven't checked yet if disabling hw acceleration causes slow performance when surfing.

What worked for me was simply going to display settings, change the resolution of your monitor to whichever option, and then hit revert. Hope this helps
