YouTube 16:9

November 25, 2008

So YouTube has officially changed the aspect ratio of their videos to widescreen 16:9.

This is interesting because when we edited THP, we had intentionally made the vlog portion (4:3 ratio) fill up the entire 4:3 screen with the punch-out narrative shots letterboxed within it. Now, one could argue that it makes more sense to have the widescreen narrative shots take up the whole frame, and the vlog portion be smaller within this new widescreen frame. Quite frankly, that’s a lot of work so we probably won’t be changing our format.
