WhatsApp Web playing videos with a wrong aspect ratio.

I'm using WhatsApp Web in a Macbook Pro. When I play back some videos sent to me, they play stretched out from side to side. However this doesn't happen when I play them back on my cell phone (Samsung Note 4).

What should I do?

Google Chrome.

Yes, I just found out that if I used Safari everything is normal. So the problem's got something to do with the Chrome browser! What do I do about this?

Turn your laptop into a mobile console!

Done turning off hardware acceleration, but the problem persists. I have restarted Chrome as the instruction says.

That thread identifies it as a bug in HTML5 media streams and the latest version of Chrome.  It was also posted on August 30th of this year.  I'd give it a month to see if it fixes itself.
