Full screen Stream?

by Ulsting » Thu Mar 08, 2012 2:33 am

How do I get a platform to take up the entire screen region. I see the width of the platform go to the edges of the broadcaster,however, through the viewer's eyes their are black pockets on the sides. This also happen for the top and bottom, except for the top and bottom I also see black pockets. Please help. How can I make the stream full screen?

Can you post a screen shot or VOD of the issue please?
And what is the difference between the side and top/bottom? You use the word "except" but then you give the same description? :)

It does sound like one of two things though:
a) Viewers have a 16:10 monitor and you stream in 16:9 (or vice versa). This is normal, there's no fix for this.

or

b) You need to keep the aspect ratio from your desktop resolution all the way to the viewers. So if your desktop is a 16:10, you should stream in 16:10. If you stream in 16:9 the aspect ratio is not maintained and your image will look narrow (or wide if the scenario is reverse).

If you post information about your resolutions and examples of the issue, we can have a look at what is wrong (if anything).

Are you sure you have your screen region filling the viewport in Xsplit? If you want it to stretch over the entire cast area, highlight the item you're trying to stretch, goto settings and position. Unselect "Keep Aspect Ratio" and the image will be stretchable to the entire viewport regardless of resolution.

Hope this helps (or ignore if this isn't the problem).

@famous9671
Your image shows a completely normal behavior. Read part b) of my first post. You stream in 5:4 (I'm estimating this from the pic) ratio but the player you watch your stream in is locked in 16:9. There's no error, it's a matter of aspect ratios, just like on your TV, when watching a old 4:3 movie on a wide screen TV. The only difference is that your TV can stretch the image (out of proportions, which is generally considered bad) which the Adobe Flash player can't.

What Lapizza suggests is a tangent of the above, and could help you solve the issue - under certain conditions - by stretching the image. I would advice against it though, it's a personal choice but I dislike watching streams that are out of proportion (imagine a circle, that is oval instead). Furthermore, if people fullscreen your stream, those that have monitors in different aspect ratio than your stream WILL have borders no matter what.
