    Hi there :) Can you please post a screenshot?

    ...In case you don't know: On an iPhone you click the home button and lock button at the same time, then the photo will be in your camera roll. On a Mac you press command-shift-3 and the photo will be on your desktop.

    Looks like a problem with the formatting. Maybe it's the way that it was recorded?

    Me thinks videos taken in portrait will play back in portrait ...

    Can you try recording something holding the phone in landscape?

    The videos like what you see here are called videos that have been "iPhoned". When you record in portrait orientation, videos are uploaded in portrait orientation. Simple concept, right? In order for this not to happen, you must record in landscape mode. It's not exactly good to look at, but that's how an iPhone does.

    Yeah, that looks about the proportion of an iPhone screen... You gotta hold it in landscape if you want widescreen :)
