What I meant is that the phrase "sized % the video content" doesn't
make sense.  But you've rephrased in an understandable manner, so
that's okay now.

I dunno what behavior HTML defines, and I don't use <video> often
enough to tell what it is in practice. I'll trust you. ^_^

Just read the spec; "auto" computes to "stretch", and "stretch" makes
it match the size of the alignment container (without regard as to
whether it's bigger or smaller).
