Android: pinch to zoom/crop


Recommended Posts

It would be great to be able to pinch to zoom the video so it fills the screen on Android. I have a lot of older 3:2 ratio TV shows and watching them with such large black borders is quite annoying.

Hi there, have you explored the settings in the video player menu?


Folks are getting used to super tall/wide screens on phones, and the pinch to zoom touch functionality is the obvious method.

I'm seeing kids as young as 4 using pinch to zoom, it's the way to go.


Features are being removed in the name of functionality for new users. Well here's one I doubt many would have issue with. So long as you don't remove the method that's already there.
