  • App Launcher

Remove Filmstrip from web videos using Javascript

  • Make the video zoom and fill the screen without breaking aspect ratio:
    • Simply add this property to the html5 <video> element: object-fitcover;
  • Break the aspect ratio and simply remove filmstrip by increasing video height:
    • Simply add this property to the html5 <video> element: object-fitfill;
    • ref: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4000818/scale-html5-video-and-break-aspect-ratio-to-fill-whole-site
  • Manual Aspect ratio:
    • Use the scale prop of html5 video element. Eg. transformscaleY(1.32);
  • Calculate: https://gist.github.com/jimjeffers/1219207
    • @video.addEventListener("loadedmetadata", (event) =>
      actualRatio = @video.videoWidth/@video.videoHeight
      targetRatio = $(@video).width()/$(@video).height()
      adjustmentRatio = targetRatio/actualRatio
  • Didn’t work:
    • height: auto; : ref: http://activelab.io/tutorials/html-5-full-screen-and-responsive-videos
