I'm wondering the same thing as ChromeAce. Sounds like most people complain about videos with more lines vertically than horizontally because YouTube handles them poorly. Is that all? Either that or 'because the things I know about have all been that way' (also known as 'the worst reason to do anything ever').

If it makes sense to frame something vertically, why not? Especially if you're just sharing it among phones, where vertical is a more common orientation anyway.

YouTube is an LLC (and a wholly owned subsidiary of Google). So...they very much are a company.

The most important question: Will the videos being uploaded be in full HD?!

If so this app could be amazing and convenient!

I haven't had the same experience using YouTube in recent days.

I suggest installing the AdBlock Safari extension and blocking pop-up windows in Safari. See if it improves your YouTube viewing...

Great, more idiots now encouraged to take out their phone to shoot a crappy video of a concert they're at.

Attention everybody: Nobody wants to see your poorly filmed video, and I sure as hell don't want you standing in front of me with your phone out while I'm trying to enjoy a concert. Please go back to enjoying the actual moment and not having to film every little thing.

Okay, rant over (but, seriously, can we please ban cell phones at concert venues?).

Human vision is "widescreen."

I'm an amateur photographer (cited as background not as expertise), and I remember as a kid the whole world of options that opened up simply by turning the camera 90 degrees. As I got older and started watching people around me taking pictures, it intrigued me how this one simple little trick was lost on so many. When I would recommend a vertical shot (think, family in front of the castle at Walt Disney World), people would be amazed at the picture tha could be obtained.

The design of the cameras did a lot to force this. The 35mm format and cameras were designed for the landscape nature of our vision and our horizontally-oriented hands. Other formats, meant more for studio photography, which often made their way into vertically oriented magazines, weren't tied to this same constraint. Thanks to the design of camera phones, vertical has become much more normal. Unfortunately, that extends to video from these devices as well.

Vertical is fine for still photography. The image isn't changing so it gives our widescreen vision a chance to take everything in. Video and movies, though, are meant to be an extension of our eys in the real world. Even if the movie is shot vertically, the image is presented to eyes that are used to seing horizontally. It forces an uncomfortable translation.

The movie screen doesn't fit that way!

Actually, still photographers use vertical all the time. Portrait mode. Talking to someone while showing their figure, from head to waist. Nothing's the matter with it.

All this onslaught of well-written apps, it's great, but I know what I don't like. Install the gmail app and it changes your "got mail" beep to a thunk. Can't figure out how to change it back, at least for Mail mail.

I don't think you need a fancy philosophical explanation. You had to put a movie screen in a room for hundreds of people. You weren't going to switch the movie screen orientation for portrait mode. Then TVs, the early ones, weighed 200 pounds. But a smartphone is a personal space camera. A series of interviews with a bunch of people filmed in "portrait mode" is quite interesting to me.

I don't think I could bring myself to do even the most basic of video editing on my phone - no matter how swish the UI was.

Just logged in to ask the same thing!

Edit:

Bah, I see 720. I'll stick to waiting to upload from my laptop I suppose.

You do realize that if everyone used an adblocker then services like YouTube would either have to start charging its users or go out of business?

I know, it looks like it failed to load properly!!! And they also ruined the channel design before that. Imagine if Apple owned YouTube and did that. They'd get burned at the stake for making a mistake that bad. I don't even understand why; Google also has very high expectations of quality. I always thought they were doing an excellent job with YouTube until these horrible developments.

P.S. A lot of users (including me) on all types of browsers and OSs have been reporting problems of some videos not showing up at all in YouTube after the new layout. There's just a black square instead of the player. Did they hire Microsoft to do this or something??!

We're not everyone
Besides, if everyone was like me except that they didn't use AdBlock, nobody would buy anything anyway from the ads (or, in some cases, boycott the advertised product), so ads would not work. Also, if everyone was like me, the "fashion" industry would be dead.

That's great. Portrait mode is extremely annoying. So many great videos have been ruined.

The ability to do this has basically been there for a while, but this gives advanced features. You could already upload the video without enhancements:

It doesn't work with HTML5 anymore.

All my future videos will be uploaded to Vimeo.
What else would you expect since Google bought them? That's the Google way.
More ads, more gimmicks, more money for google. Google is not about quality it is about mass market share and cheap advertising for the mass market.

When people come with eyes on top of each other vertically instead of side-by-side horizontally, then vertical videos will be OK. Until then, NEVER!

No no no no no YouTube, please! You should be getting rid of that godforsaken useless sick inducing crap producing 'stabilise' function, not letting people use it more often!

It's a crap implementation that means I can no longer watch some videos on YouTube, as it induces motion sickness!
