    Same firmware as ours . If you have another TV, try connecting it to another TV and try streaming the same ISO video. If the same result, maybe try factory resetting your Chromecast dongle & see if that helps.

    Strange indeed. I know the firmware was updated pretty much as soon as I plugged it in. I'll try another set in the house (a Samsung) and if it still doesn't work I'll try a factory reset. Thanks for taking the time to look into this with me. Greatly appreciated.

    Alright.. so I plugged the Chromecast into a different HDMI port on the Bravia - same result. I then did the factory reset, and put it back on the wireless network etc and plugged it back into the HDMI port - still the same issue. I then connected it to a smaller 720P Samsung LCD upstairs... and... same thing - the picture is still in the middle of the screen.

    Thanks for the testing feedback. Right-click on the video in Mezzmo and click Properties. On the Properties dialog, go to the Transcoding tab and select the transcoded file that does not play full screen. Click "Save As" and save the file to disk. Then, add this saved file into your Mezzmo library and try streaming it to your Chromecast. Does it play full screen or smaller size? If smaller size, then please upload it to a filesharing site like OneDrive, Google Drive, mega.co.nz, Dropbox, etc. and email the download link to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com. You might as well upload the .ISO as well so we can test this ourselves with our Chromecast.

    I saved the file to my library, tried streaming it and it's the same story unfortunately. I also tried playing the resulting file in VLC and I can see the same issue. I'm uploading the ~800MB file now to my OneDrive and will send a link shortly.

    Many thanks for uploading movie files for verification. Looks like the video source has been ripped with confusing settings, as: 720 x 480 SAR=8:9 DAR=4:3
    what is actually 4:3 standard, however the internal video frame aspect ratio is different (like for 16:9). Many devices, including VLC player are able to detect that and display it as 16:9. Valid video for 16:9 should have something like: 720 x 480 SAR=32:27 DAR=16:9.
    In the coming soon Mezzmo update, we will offer a procedure to allow user to pre-transcode such video files with scale fix 4:3 to 16:9.
