YouTube Desktop Website Now Supports Vertical Videos With No Black Bars
02 August, 2018, 04:00 | Author: Leah Owens
The streaming service now varies the video size for different aspect ratios, removing black bars on the sides of vertical videos and increasing the height of the video player where necessary. Now, with the desktop experience, viewers will be given an experience that automatically adjusts the videos aspect ratio to fit the screen's size. That all changed over the weekend, when YouTube rolled out an update to its desktop site that rids it of black bars altogether. The move makes the platform more friendly for aspect ratios other than 16:9 but has angered some users, who claim the update makes videos smaller, causes parts of videos to be cut off, and even lowers video quality in some cases.
YouTube now does a better job of supporting vertical videos and other unconventional screen ratios. Various affected users also demanded an ability to opt out. So, it's not the "best viewing experience" that YouTube was aiming for.
It looks as though YouTube is simply aligning the viewing experience across mobile and desktop without really considering the downsides. However, it seems there is a lot more work to do before it's ideal.
