Why Im Mad: Y U No Record in Landscape Mode?
Honestly, nobody wants to see thick black bars in your video – Do the millions of us with widescreens TV’s, Laptops, and mobile devices a favor and turn your smartphone sideways or “Landscape Mode” when shooting videos.
It will get rid of the horizontal black bars, because just about all video displays nowadays (with the execption of the expensive-azz Google Pixel Chromebook #Womp) are in widescreen format.
Also, when you flip your smartphone in landscape mode, make sure your camera icons rotate as well. If they don’t, your video will look even more jacked up than just having black bars.
