Google chrome showing black edges when playing video

I added a video background, everything works except that Google Chrome and Firefox are showing black edges when I'm playing the video (see image). When I ran the page on Edge and internet explorer the edges did not appear.

EDIT: I know the black edges are because I put the container as a black background but I dont want the container to show up in the edges. I just need the video to show up in full width

enter image description here



$( document ).ready(function() {

// Resive video
scaleVideoContainer();

initBannerVideoSize('.video-container .poster img');
initBannerVideoSize('.video-container .filter');
initBannerVideoSize('.video-container video');

$(window).on('resize', function() {
scaleVideoContainer();
scaleBannerVideoSize('.video-container .poster img');
scaleBannerVideoSize('.video-container .filter');
scaleBannerVideoSize('.video-container video');
});

});

function initBannerVideoSize(element){

$(element).each(function(){
$(this).data('height', $(this).height());
$(this).data('width', $(this).width());
});

scaleBannerVideoSize(element);

}

function scaleBannerVideoSize(element){

var windowWidth = $(window).width(),
windowHeight = $(window).height(),
videoWidth,
videoHeight;

console.log(windowHeight);

$(element).each(function(){

windowAspectRatio = windowHeight/windowWidth;

if (videoAspectRatio > windowAspectRatio) {
videoWidth = windowWidth;
videoHeight = videoWidth * videoAspectRatio;
$(this).css({'top' : -(videoHeight - windowHeight) / 2 + 'px', 'margin-left' : 0});
} else {
videoHeight = windowHeight;
videoWidth = videoHeight / videoAspectRatio;
$(this).css({'margin-top' : 0, 'margin-left' : -(videoWidth - windowWidth) / 2 + 'px'});

$(this).width(videoWidth).height(videoHeight);

Answer

You can use the object-fit property to control how the video is sized within its element.

If you want to stretch the video to exactly fill the entire element (like an img does by default), use:

object-fit: fill;

If you want to maintain the existing aspect ratio, and don't mind cropping the top and bottom, use:

object-fit: cover;

$( document ).ready(function() {

    // Resive video
    scaleVideoContainer();

    initBannerVideoSize('.video-container .poster img');
    initBannerVideoSize('.video-container .filter');
    initBannerVideoSize('.video-container video');
        
    $(window).on('resize', function() {
        scaleVideoContainer();
        scaleBannerVideoSize('.video-container .poster img');
        scaleBannerVideoSize('.video-container .filter');
        scaleBannerVideoSize('.video-container video');
    });

});
