Here is a good one. Unusual Video Size and Issue with auto loop, etc

Recommended Posts

This is from a movie called the wedding year.  I uploaded a small section of it (no audio).  In the first photo you can see the padding and margins are minimal, which is fine.  But when I turn on loop video and turn player controls off, in the second video I get all the extra white space.   However, what I notice is that when I toggle them on and off, I can clearly see the the video is somehow maintaining the size of the first video.  The video is also a unusual size 2534x1056 which is more linear, which is the effect I wanted, however, I don't think the white space is margin, I think it's the video just hidden because I have looping on.

If anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears and thanks in advance.  I would make this a HD Gif but the size would be ridiculous.  

PS I've used both 7.0 and 7.1 and same difference.

Hi @LoftyDevsbyWidleStudioLLP. I didn't hear from anybody so I changed it back. but it's 1920x1080 but if you toggle on the mute and autoplay, it apppears that they just go invisible so the top and bottom of the movie is is cropped by the invisible.  It's the autoplay that is doing it.  As you can see, when I have those turned off, it goes 1920x1080 I love the way it looks in my first post, I just need to figure out how I should recrop it or make it a HD Gif, but those take up unnecessary sizes.  I will see if I can think of a creative way to achieve what I want but thanks for trying.
