Screen goes diagonal when in full screen on video.

My MacBook Air will occasionally show video when in full screen diagonally.

This only seems to happen for a brief period after plugging in a MagSafe.

Any ideas?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Very odd! Are you sure the vid was just sideways to start with?

Some phone vids which are shot in vertical mode (how its normal held) will convert to horizontal once the viewed in a horizontal format when the screen is wider.

It's on Netflix. It's not a phone video.

I have the same problem, and read on another forum that putting subtitles on the video does the trick. So far, it works for me!
