Transparent background on Stream player

When embedding a video on a page using the Stream player, “black bars” will be displayed if you don’t get the aspect ratio exactly right.

Fixing the aspect ratio is one solution, but simply setting the background of the page to be transparent instead of black is another solution that’s currently impossible. This functionality is supported by Vimeo, why can’t I do this with Cloudflare?


Thanks for raising this - I’m going to mention this to our Stream team internally and see if they can comment for you.

Thanks for your feedback. This is something we are going to support in the near term. I’ll update this post when it is released (in coming weeks).
