Rasperry PI 3B - Portrait Mode, VLC and automatic start

HI, I have a TV where a rasperry PI 3B is connected. I need a boot configuration file with the following requirements:

set TV to portrait (display_rotate=1), opens VLC Player in Full Mode and starts a specific mp4 file in endless mode.

I know how to rotate the screen, but stuck at the VLC Player as it plays only half the screen (see attached images). The File I want to play is around 4GB. the RAM of the Rasperry is 2GB (if this is an issue?) The Rasperry stops to play the file from time to time... I am open for any suggestions to use another player instead of the VLC.

Thanks for your time and offer!

All the Best,
