While you're at it, lets fix the idiocy of adding gunk to the sides of a portrait-mode video so that it becomes a landscape video. It would of course be better not to record portrait video in the first place. But if I watch it on a phone/tablet, I can turn the phone to portrait mode and see the portrait video decently. But I can't even do that, if some ... bad person ... stupidly converted it to landscape. It only works in landscape, and is a loss on any kind of display. Why do they do that?
