There are various video streaming platforms online that provide quality content for millions of users in almost all cities in the world. All these video streaming platforms have their USP of showcasing the video in different styles, i.e., the UI of the website. Some of these video streaming players include prime video, Netflix, Hot star, YouTube, etc.

While all these platforms display the video content with respect to their own UI, the video format is pretty much similar.

You can get rid of these black bars problem with this free browser extension.
