Default cell phone video with wings?

I see loads of videos with a video in the middle and an out of focus
partial video on each side of it. I've concluded that these are
cell-phone videos. Yes?

So how come none of my cellphone video was like this?

And, how come theirs are?

My cellphone video and photos were probably not as good as I got from a
real camera, even point and shoot, but they look pretty good and they
don't have blurry wings.

They were taken in portrait format, and artificially expanded to
landscape format for television presentation. Perhaps so that viewers
didn't report that half their TV screen was broken? As you will have
gathered, I'm not a fan of this!

When I take images, I rotate my phone to landscape orientation,
something which seems beyond some people's capability! G

Aha. The last thing I would put at the edges is a blurry version of
part of the picture, something that is moving too. It's distracting.
I'd rather have all black, or all white, or maybe slogans like "Don't
molest women", "54-40 or fight", "No dating anyone under 18" or "Stop
at 2"

Perhaps so that viewers
didn't report that half their TV screen was broken?


It's bad when half the screen is broken. Just try to get a repairman to
make half a service call.

As you will have
gathered, I'm not a fan of this!


I can tell.

When I take images, I rotate my phone to landscape orientation,
something which seems beyond some people's capability! G


LOL I take maybe 95% in landscape, but especially when I'm close, I've
used portrait to get a whole sign or portrait etc. in the picture.

I found ways to rotate even the videos, and I'm showing my pictures for
the first time to 4 people tomorrow, but haven't had time to rotate
anything. So they'll have to turn their heads! or we can just skip to
the next picture. At least there won't be blurry wings.


Off topic, on my trip last spring, I took 2 or 3 videos of videos (at
museums) and they came out amazingly well, fully as useful as the
original. I thought it would ge like video of a television screen,
which usually shows big black and white stripes. Is that only true for
CRT tvs?

It's purely a matter of aspect ratio - how to display a 9:16 (portrait)
image on a 16:9 (landscape) screen. Similar issues arise when looking
at a old 4:3 video on a 16:9 screen.

Just use a program that rotates the video automatically - for instance, VLC.

It can also do it manually: Tools, Effects, Video Effects, Geometry
(rotate to any angle). But I tried it on a regular video and it crashed
(core dumped).

A matter of scan speed and screen self persistence.

I'll look into that. The other night, we didn't get to most of the
videos anyhow, none that needed rotating.

It can also do it manually: Tools, Effects, Video Effects, Geometry
(rotate to any angle). But I tried it on a regular video and it crashed
(core dumped).

Autorotation in phone, while using it as a viewer can be a hoot!

It can also do it manually: Tools, Effects, Video Effects, Geometry
(rotate to any angle). But I tried it on a regular video and it crashed
(core dumped).
