Re: Fullscreen on apps like Netflix and Amazon

2019-07-10, 2:40 AM

This phone is BEAUTIFUL.
A lot of apps run full screen. Netflix and Amazon need to update their respective apps but there are some movies like Mowgli on Netflix and Venom on Amazon Prime that ideally should run in 21:9. I'm looking into the WHY of this.
The camera is amazing. Low light performance is great. Obviously not on par with Pixel. But hey, this one costs INR 20k. The phone is slightly thinner compared to others. By thin, I mean the edges. So easier to hold.

Can't say much about the updates. It is an Android One phone so ideally should get Q an R. Plus security patches for 3 years. But it's obviously upto Motorola.

The original poster @baunthiyal is upset that he cannot view video on the screen at 21:9 aspect ratio.  As others have commented, his complaint should be aimed at the distribution networks.  HD video is defined as having a 16:9 ratio regardless of the screen resolution.  The great majority of currently produced video programming will continue to appear in 16:9 format for HDTV displays whether they are 720, 1024, or 4k.

 

Netflix and Amazon Prime and many other 'app' providers do need to update their apps to accomodate the 21:9 format.  But also realize that you are playing a zero-sum game here: If the app writers fit the full width onto the smartphone display, then you'll have "letterbox" bars at the top and bottm of the screen, much like the days not all that long ago when the USA transitioned from analog TV to digital.  And the apps will have to accomodate individual viewing devices of every possible aspect ratio.

Thanks for your response @KarlBeckman.
I have obviously reached out to the respective distribution networks. But I also am a little confused by the fact that movies that have actually been released with 21:9 aspect ratio (Venom on Amazon Prime and Mowgli on Netflix) still do not show as such.
For example - https://blogs.sonymobile.com/2019/03/12/five-star-films-to-watch-in-219-on-your-new-five-star-xperia/
Some movies are from Netflix.
Are we completely sure that the app MUST be updated to accommodate viewing in 21:9 despite actual movies being released in that ratio?

I was surfing few videos on youtube regarding this 21:9 ratio usability. Sony Xperia 10 & New Xperia 1 both which has same aspect ratio screen plays full screen HD Videos from Netflix in 21:9 ratio, there design don't have any kind of notchs, i think which is the reason.

Moto gave Puch hole & 21:9  ratio screen to experience full screen view which we don't get to experience and Moto team can't blame on Netflix. They need to see why Xperia is able to and why not Vision.

Matt or any other Moderator...

 

Have you have done something about this issue? I can't see multimedia content on 21:9 in a native way in apps like Netflix or Amazon in series or movies recorded in 21:9... in Youtube we can "zoom in" but that's not a fix to the issue... I reached for Netflix dev team but they say it's not a problem of the platform and I agree... if you see a preview in Netflix app for example, it uses all the screen (even the black line around the punch hole (someone can try this and take a picture please?... I'm not talking about taking a screenshot, but to take a photo of the phone while you play a preview of the suggested videos in the home page), but when you decide to see a movie or a serie YOU WILL ALWAYS GET TO SEE THAT AWFUL BLACK LINE... I'm still on Android 9 (OPENMX channel) but I haven't read anything about the fullscreen issue and if it is fixed on Android 10

In the latest update Motorola added the ability to make apps like Netflix ignore the the punch hole camera and display full screen though the widevine specification issue still is there so no HD Netflix still but you can now watch 21:9 films in 21:9

Hi, could you please tell me how you managed to get this window to pop up? When I click on my Netflix logo the only thing I can do is see the app info. Or which recent update are we talking? Thanks!
