Fill screen option for video background doesn't fill larger screens

Go to solution Solved by tuanphan,

I've added a background video via YouTube link to a single section that I'd like to fill the entire user's screen. This mostly works on my smaller screens, such as my 13.6" MacBook Air, but if it's viewed on say a 24" iMac, the "fill screen" option does not actually fill the entire screen and huge blank area is exposed between the section and the footer.  I'm not sure how to resolve. I've messed with the settings such as row count and spacing and gap, but nothing seems to do it.  I see the note in the edit window which says, "Fill screen will expand the background height to fill a portion of the user’s screen."  

This note worries me, is a true fill screen not an option? How can I ensure that the background video/section, actually fills the entire users screen, no matter the size?
