FM12 video container wrong aspect ratio on mac?

I have to create a small filemaker solution for an event with some media content in container fields. Filemaker 12 is really great for this except when you watch a video in full screen on a mac. The video aspect ratio inside the container field is correct, but in full screen it seems to depend on the aspect ratio of the container field itself. If you have a 16:9 video in a container field that has approximately 16:9 aspect ratio, it'll appear alright. But if your container is let's say perfectly square, the video in full screen will be completely distorted.

 

Check those 2 examples:

On windows 7 it works perfectly, I can change the size of the container without affecting the full screen ratio. Works great on the iPad as well.

 

 

 

Any ideas on how to solve this problem? I really need this to work on a mac.
