    First I tried uploading a video to youtube with pixelpipe, and for some reason the video is tall and thin with black bars on the side. Then on my computer, I try to watch a video in quicktime, and again it is tall and thin! Why is it doing this?! I do not understand a thing about video. Help!

    Edit: Here is the horrendous video problem!

    This second one is a direct upload from the phone- Why is it doing this?

    Hold the phone horizontal when taking the video. Im pretty sure that will fix the problem. I don't think anything can be done about a video thats already shot though.

    Thank you very much! I didn't know you had to do that. Is there anything I can do to fix the previous videos? They aren't important, but just in case in the future I take a video in portrait.

    Is there really and reason to take video in portrait if it will be done like that every time?

    Edit: Is it beneficial to take photos in landscape too?

    If you're talking about transferring photos and videos from you phone to computer without compromising quality, you can use iPhoto to import.
