    I quick scenario. You're watching some streaming video from some website, but it's got ads, controls that won't hide, other distracting garbage.

    Is there an app that will effectively mask the entire screen and allow you to let only a rectangle area show through?

    control+scroll to zoom in - centered on the video. Also good when showing vid to someone across the room...

    Yeah I should've added that I do the zoom thing. But even that doesn't get rid of ads above and below if it's a different aspect ration of your screen, or the non-hiding controls. Aside from that Zoom is standard practice! (and it always blows away any windoze users)

    That's your best (and simplest) option.

    To the OP: Thanks for your public service announcement in your sig. It's a noble, and unfortunately necessary task. ;)

    Hahah, Thank YOU for noticing! In my experience those are the two (six?) most misunderstood/misspelled words on the internet. People just don't get the Apostrophe.
