Android - How make vertical video fit screen size?

Hi. I have a question about working with vertical videos.

1) The xml layout for player is -

<com.ooyala.android.OoyalaPlayerLayout
android:id="@+id/ooyalaPlayer"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent" />

 So, it should match borders of the root layout.

2) I also have video with vertical orientation.

And now it's shown like this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9p4IQonOcrnWW44d0ItSjBlcnc/view?usp=sharing

So video is too small and I have spaces around it.

I need to show this in such way: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9p4IQonOcrnQ0tTeW1sTUVTNjQ/view?usp=sharing

 

How should I get similar result? Fullscreen mode doesn't help me and it isn't what I want.

After my internal investigation I can inform that we currently do not support vertical videos with our player at this moment. any vertical videos will display the black lines you show in your screenshots.

 

The support can be requested via a "Feature Request". for this you can contact your ooyala rep or CSM. We apologize for any of the inconveniance 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions

Thx for answer, I will discuss it with my project manager. And one more question - as i understans, I can't set special size for Ooyala player and video. For example, a little square with video in the top of screen and in the left corner. Right?
