Can we disable Embiggen until it is fixed?

Each time I open a new video it blows up beyond my viewing space, this is a known bug with the new Embiggen and then you have to scroll down and reset the video size. I have to do this every time I watch any new video.

Maybe just disable that feature until it is working correctly? It's ok, take all the time you need, but I don't see a great reason to leave it in when it is actively broken and more of a hindrance than anything else. At least perhaps switch it so that videos don't default to starting in that mode?

@humanity: They certainly shouldn't be defaulting to Embiggen, so I'm not sure why they would be doing that for you. Can you try logging in in a different browser to see if they're sitll Embiggening for you?

@rorie: I just tried Microsoft Edge and loaded up a video I haven't watched before (Get on my level 10/09/2019) and it also defaulted to the broken embiggen view right away.

EDIT: Also I uncluded a full screen grab of my browser showing how it looks like and I can see the screenshot when editing the post but it doesn't actually show up when I "publish" the post? So maybe another bug I dunno.

@rorie: 2560x1440 but I just checked and today none of the new videos I've started have launched in embiggen mode, although embiggen itself is still busted. I assume this is a known thing I think I let Dan know about it like 2 weeks ago or so and saw others mention it in another thread.

I'm getting the same issue. I'm on an ultrawide and whenever I click a video it stretches so that I can't see the bottom of the video or the controls. I have to click the video, then turn off the embiggen. I'm on a 3440x1440 monitor. Embiggen doesn't seem to work properly with ultrawides at all.

@forcen: @humanity: @deadstar: The issue of it not working on ultrawides is being worked on, but we'll keep an eye on if it is defaulting to that.

@rorie Great though I'm not on an Ultrawide for the record.

The issue I see is that in Chrome the right edge of the video is cut off by the scrollbar. Just a minor annoyance. Otherwise - big fan
