The way a movie appears on a screen is based on its aspect ratio. The aspect ratio is the proportion between the width and height of the display. If the aspect ratio of the screen and the movie are not the same, the movie will fill only part of the screen. In this case, you will see black bars on top and bottom and occasionally on the sides of the screen.
Trying to watch movies on full screen may be a frustrating task with many available media players. However, with Kodi, you can watch a movie on full screen by changing its aspect ratio. This way the movie will have the same aspect ratio as your screen. Every movie fan will love this feature.
Here is how to watch movies on full screen:
- Once the movie is being played, click the menu button. A toolbar will appear at the bottom of the screen
- Click the Settings icon
- Click Video settings
- Click Video mode
- Click Stretch 16:9
- Go back to the movie
- Click the menu button to remove the toolbar
Now the movie should appear on full screen.
Stretch 16:9 means that the movie is stretched to fill a 16:9 frame. This aspect ratio is universal for high-definition TVs. If you still aren’t satisfied with the result, you can try other aspect ratios by choosing a different Video mode besides Stretch 16:9.
That’s all, it is easy to watch movies on full screen with Kodi. Enjoy it!
