Hi, I have a suggestion.

The Player increases the height a little when Hide the bottom bar of Android, but not all. Others apps of Android goes full screen when the bottom bar hides.

The suggestion is to go full screen.

Thanks!

It has to do with the SignagePlayer calculation of the stage area in some specific Android devices (mostly China type open source none brands), we did resolve the issue in our player (mediaDROID ZX) and expect to have a new version that will fix this issue on specific Android devices in the near future. On most devices this is a none issue though.

Hi Guy's.
Hmmm... Normally I agree with you guy's.
But in this case it seems to be a political issue.
I understand that you want to promote your own players and sell them.

But if you look at the app's from other software companies there is NO problem to make the app's generic full screen.
Like Netflix app and many others...
If googling just for a minute I find several "sniplets" that do this.

In my case we build our own "smart-TV" that have iMito MX1 or MK808 inside from factory... I want to install the software to Autoboot and show full screen.
I also want to force vertical screen.
Then this player would be a perfect player!

Otherwise you know i Love you guy's! ;-)

update:
You can add
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen"

to the AndroidManifest.xml

Hi Xclamo

I want to make android:theme="@android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen"  at Manifest.xml but, how can I decompress .apk?
Can you help me, please?

Thank you

But today, the player now detects if the bar is hidden at the bottom and goes full screen.

Could you build it in landscape mode and just rotate the resources in a scene to make it work. Just a thought.
