Unable to view podcast (video) in full screen on Android tablet






Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+

Operating System

Android 12


My Question or Issue

When viewing a video podcast in the app on my tablet, I cannot put it in full screen mode while in landscape orientation.


Horizontally, the video only stretches across half the screen, so it's really small. If I'm in portrait mode, I see the full screen button, but pressing this simply flips it back into the "half screen" horizontal mode. Please see attached screenshot to see the issue.


I'm pretty sure this used to work. Is it a bug or intended behavior? If the latter, why aren't we allowed to watch video podcasts in full screen? It's extremely annoying.


Please check the screenshot and let me know how this can be fixed. Note how there is a thick line dividing the screen in half, and the video only stretches to this line. Why would anyone think this is a good idea?
