Hello! My name is Vladimir. I would like to suggest an idea to make a black background when watching a video on a large monitor. Since the user is sitting close, it is bad to stretch the video to the entire monitor. I would like the video to be in a smaller window, and the rest of the monitor space is black. Thanks!

Player menu > View > Video Frame > Normal Size

Then the video stays at 100% size even when you maximize the window. So everything around it will be black.

Thank you for advice. Yes, this partially solves the problem. But, if the video has a high resolution, then it is filled to the entire monitor, and this is not what was needed. You had to set your own video size, click on the "Theater Mode" button. With this size, the video remains its own, and everything around it is black. As well as the position of the window. Could you implement this in the near future? I would be very grateful to you! Thanks! Smile

Sorry, there will not be such an option.

Another easy way to do something similar is with the zoom option in the player.
1) Maximize the player window
2) Press the following keys on the numeric keypad on your keyboard (on the right-side):
Numpad1 to zoom out. Numpad9 to zoom in. Numpad5 to reset.
So for high resolution video you would zoom out to make it smaller.
