What? Youtube locked aspect ratio!

Really YouTube???

YouTube, a giant unable to evolve?

Google/YouTube doesn’t support portrait oriented videos. That means people like me, who just tried to upload a smartphone captured portrait video end up furious because my portrait video gets bulky side padding to convert it to landscape. So, I joined Vimeo who shows aspect ratio integrity!

How many billions do they have and they can’t deploy whatever upgrades they need to in order to join the modern world? I am wracking my brain here – TV set configuration/obligations?

Whoever is not freaking the x out at YouTube over this is in DENIAL.

 

Here’s a comparison:
YouTube, waste of space first, then autoplaying portrait on Vimeo :)
