Found a bug?
Need to remove unnecessary black bars from this youtube video you're watching? Ultrawidify is here for you. If the extension stretches the video instead of cropping, you're experiencing a Google Chrome bug. Go to chrome://flags/#use-angle and select D3D9. 🌟🌟🌟 MAIN FEATURES 🌟🌟🌟 ⚠️ Features automatic aspect ratio detection (not all sites are supported — support may vary from site to site) ✅ Supports primarily youtube, vimeo, twitch, netflix, but will try to work on any website ↔️ Supports both cropping and stretching ✅ Works with youtube theater mode ❓ How do I use it? If the site does not utilize DRM, you can just sit back and let autodetection handle everything for you. On sites that use DRM — or on videos where autodetection proves unreliable — you can either use the extension popup or the keyboard shortcuts (note that extension shortcuts do not override site's default shortcuts) to set the aspect ratio manually. 💬 Features in detail 💬

Only working extension I have come across so far. Good: - Gives useful error messages. Bad: - A bit complex UI, but I don't mint it because it gives you plenty of options.

I had a bug on Netflix where when I went into full screen mode, my movie/show would be stretched out. It was annoying me so I did a search on reddit which brought me to here. This program told me what was wrong (it was a hardware acceleration issue and I had to select a different GPU processing engine or something) So though I didnt use the product for what it was mainly intended for, it did diagnose the problem and pretty much resolved it.
