    1 use dolphin browser from the market
    2 if the movie is in the right solution, its auto fullscreen.

    We had great scrolling on the internet prior to 2.0.1, but with that release we got the stuttered scrolling. We're hoping they will fix that with a future OS release.

    Yeah I personally hate pinch to zoom, double tap seems so much easier for me.

    I don't know I like pinching in some instances like when I try to select a topic on the mobile version of this site I seem to miss, but the Dolphin browser just can't stand it.

    I hate pinch zoom on Dolphin or anything else. Never use Dolphin, Don't think the scrolling is that bad but it did go way south since 2.0.1.

    As compared to the Iphone...yeah it lags/jumps, but that should get back to normal with the next update (hopefully). From there, it beats the Iphone since it has a much better flick scroll action than the Iphone IMHO.

    It is not the phones fault your movie doesnt fit. It is all about movie ratios. If the movie is at the correct 16:9 ratio it will fit, unfortunately many movies have abandoned this. I believe Act1 video player gives the zoom in option to fill the screen (crop to be exact) but of course, you will loose part of the movie doing this. If you didn't, you would change the recolution and there fore, change the way people, buildings etc look. Long heads, short body type thing..
    You scale to feature is exactly what is happening. The movie is being shown in it's true resolution. Try act1, but I would rather see every part of the movie than crop out and miss the edges. Either that or find a movie that was made in the true 16:9 ratio.

    i prefer the regular browser over dolphin too. the pinch zooming isn't all that great, and it doesn't do as good a job of fitting the the web page to the screen as the stock browser.

    also, the scroll choppiness we sometimes see will be there regardless of which browser is used. it's something in the core os that needs to be optimized (wasn't there before the os update) and we hope will be improved in future os releases.

    keep in mind that the iphone is and formost a media player that they squeezed a phone into. They have had what 3years to get it right so it should be great at movies.

    I had dolphin browser downloaded for all of 5 minutes! I uninstalled mainly because I missed the bookmark thumbnails that the native browser had...The pinch and zoom was ok, but I really don't mind double tapping to zoom.
