Need to remove unnecessary black bars from this youtube video you're watching? Ultrawidify is here for you.

NOTE: if this extension stretches the video instead of cropping, you are experiencing a bug with Microsoft Edge. Go to edge://flags/#use-angle and choose D3D9 from the options.

🌟🌟🌟 MAIN FEATURES 🌟🌟🌟 ⚠️ Features automatic aspect ratio detection (not all sites are supported — support may vary from site to site) ✅ Supports primarily youtube, vimeo, twitch, netflix, but will try to work on any website ↔️ Supports both cropping and stretching ✅ Works with youtube theater mode

❓ How do I use it? If the site does not utilize DRM, you can just sit back and let autodetection handle everything for you. On sites that use DRM — or on videos where autodetection proves unreliable — you can either use the extension popup or the keyboard shortcuts (note that extension shortcuts do not override site's default shortcuts) to set the aspect ratio manually.

5 star for the description
by Patrick, 2022-12-04

It always automatially zooms out again after pressing "D" once.. It doesn't stays like that after pressing once... It's very devastating and annoying..
by Bedirhan, 2022-05-03

Edit: Everything works good now, you just have to disable the manually specific player in extension settings and the use "D" for ultrawide(21:9) and to return "R" for 16:9. It works perfectly fine like that and this is why I give it 5 stars now. There could be still a little extra optimization and additional features. Also the donation website/link doesn't work, I would like to donate money for the creator of this addon(Paypal?).
