I have a phone Xiaomi Mi 9T with android 9 and I have MIUI installed on it. My problem is that when watching videos on mobile version youtube in fullscreen mode videos are being cropped. Here is an example: youtube video on my phone and on PC. You can see that the bottom part has been cropped. I tried on firefox and chrome, it seems that every browser on my phone uses the same player so videos are being cropped everywhere. Also, if I use desktop version of youtube and open videos in fullscreen then the player is being cropped at the bottom. Do you know how I can fix these

  • Does this happen in the YouTube app as well? Did you try turning desktop mode on in Chrome for example? – Chagai Friedlander Dec 9 '19 at 11:24
  • @ChagaiFriedlander It doesn't happen in Youtube app, but I don't like to use it for other reasons, I would like to browse youtube in Chrome. I did attach an image with desktop mode in Chrome (the third image): you can see that the video is not being cropped but the player is. – icetroid Dec 10 '19 at 1:32
  • Did you try zooming in AND out? Could you share the URL with us? Sometimes you can change the URL to make the website think it's running from a computer. – Chagai Friedlander Dec 10 '19 at 8:21
  • Have you heard of OG YouTube maybe that'll work for you. – Chagai Friedlander Dec 10 '19 at 8:24
  • @ChagaiFriedlander How do I zoom? I tried stretching with two fingers like an image, but it didn't zoom. Here is the link m.youtube.com/watch?v=xebewT6lh2k&t=2s. This is the mobile version. It would be nice if there is a way to fix this on mobile version. – icetroid Dec 10 '19 at 10:01
