Set default zoom option

I’ve always wondered if this is possible as I always have to manually select “Stretch” in Zoom Mode whenever I play a video, which is clearly annoying!
I’d greatly appreciate anyone’s help.
Thanks so much in advance!


Moving to suggestions. Thanks!

Plus 1, only upgraded to a lifetime license for a day but I’m already really missing a default zoom option on the tvOS version.

Another +1 as always stretch 4:3 to 16:9, frutrasting having to do every time as have a lot in 4:3 ratio, and the one option keeping me using this full time

Push! Please let us set “stretch” as standard zoom mode for all movies in the main menu.

Bump. Would love to have this as a feature, setting it manually for each episode is a hassle.




Add this feature, please

It looks like it won’t be long now. This thread is marked as “Pending” and it’s shown as a new feature in upcoming version 5.9. :slight_smile:

Great, thank you :slight_smile:

This is now available in 5.9 which was released today.

Enjoy! :slight_smile:

I have an 60’s TV Show which is in 4:3. My TV is 16:9. How can I set a zoom factor for a whole TV Show?

Currently I set Zoom Factor for every episode, which is quite annoying.

If not possible, please take it as suggestion.

Maybe start a suggestion that would have a setting that would give the option to zoom all 4:3 to fill a 16:9 screen?

I just ran across that in another app that I can’t recall it’s name recently and it made it a “set it and forget it” deal.

There’s an existing thread in the suggestions which is geared towards this.
