Display Aspect Ratio

If your stream is published using 1024×768 (4:3) aspect ratio, the player will have two black lines on the left and on the right. This is caused because the player default aspect ration is 16:9.

You can try updating the resolution on the camera to publish in a 16:9 aspect ratio and see if you prefer that view over the current feed published in 4:3.
