Mirror movie 4:3 aspects ratio

When mirroring movie 4:3 aspects ratio, from ZF6 on TV, the entire height of a TV is not used.
(No difference, mirror via Google Chromecast or Wi-Fi direct. No difference Android 9 or 10.)
(But ZF3 used the entire height TV.)

In what application do you mirror movies? I would try it on my TV.

MX Player. Thank you so much.

Generally when you are mirroring your phone - it will mirror the entire phone.

The aspect ratio on ZenFone 6 is 19.5:1
Your TV is very likely 16:9
Meaning the image from ZenFone 6 is wider, and as such it cannot fill the height if it should fill the width (which it should).

Even if you output 4:3 on the video source through MX Player - what MX Player does is resize the video itself - not its own output. You can see from the on-screen displays, that they are still visisble - and that they are in the 19.5:9 aspect.


Zenfone 3 also had a 16::9 screen aspect, matching your TV.

I am not quite sure what you would like to illustrate but I dont think there is anything "wrong" technically here.
If you lose subtitles on TV (item 3) it is lijkely because the MX/VLC specific mirroring output isnt outputting the subtitles either?

For Item 2 - it looks as it should be. a 4:3 in a letterbox matched on the sides instead of the top/bottom as the phone is outputting a 19.5:9 aspect (which it should).

Mirror movie 4:3 aspects ratio
I tested it as promised. It behaves the same way you described it and it is logical because we have a different aspect ratio than television. I completely solved the problem by installing this app:
[APP][4.2+] SecondScreen - better screen mirroring for Android devicesThis app REQUIRES elevated permissions, granted via root access or adb shell commands.
I used adb because I don't use root. In Tasker, I programmed a toggle widget on 9 lines using this app as a plugin. Switches the resolution to 1920x1080 on the first touch, returns to the original 2340x1080 on the second touch. It works perfectly.
Thanks for your inquiry, it gave me an impulse to solve it.
