If it were up to us, each video would be 16: 9, with some exceptions for some more movie footage. But because there are older videos and people unaware of vertical video syndrome on YouTube, videos with poorer aspect conditions are an unfortunate reality. The team behind YouTube makes the most of this situation, and it is now that the browser is adapting to different conditions.

YouTube started doing this on the mobile app in March this year, and its functionality now spreads to the desktop. Basically, the previous permanent 16: 9 frame removes around each video so that they can appear larger and better adjust to different sizes of wine.

The black border around each video has been removed, and it is especially noticeable on vertical videos. Personally, I liked having it there, but it is understandable why it was taken out.

Even 16: 9 videos have grown in size, which means that video descriptions in general have been pushed down. So if you like to read through these, you may need to start doing some more rolling.

Perhaps the best way to illustrate the change is with a vertical video in a higher tab. Notice that the video now makes the most possible use of space possible; It had previously been narrowed to a 16: 9 space despite the fact that it was completely different.

The change should be alive to all. Unfortunately, it does not compensate for most vertical music videos that many artists have done these days, which are often technical 16: 9 videos in YouTube eyes due to the way they were edited and uploaded.
