Not wild about playing a movie in Photos on a new 24 iMac

I really don't take too many videos but I took 3 30 second clips today of Lake Erie turning into a slushee. iMac 24 is 4.5k and my a6600 set to XAVC S HD was recording a 1878 x 1056 video. Playback in Photos was at 197% so no wonder I didn't like it. I have not found a way, except for shrinking the Photos window, to display a video in anything that was not pulled and stretched. There is a size slider (upper left) but with that particular video the choices were "fit", "197%" and I could to up to "400%". There is no native resolution choice of the file format.  Any ideas? I am a stills centric photographer that does hardly any video but would still like to know.

Thanks

JAW
