When recording video on the slide I have two vertical black rectangle boxes either side of the video when uploaded to Youtube. It's roughly 1/3 video in the middle with 1/3 either side as a black rectangle.

I've tried all the different screen resolutions with no luck.

Am I missing something blindingly obvious?

My bad : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sclRpcXMRw0

That wasn't shot with my phone but that's the same result.

I've been through every setting I can find and can't seem to figure it out.

If someone has their video recorder working correctly and could post their settings i'd be most grateful.

Your holding the phone wrong. It is designed to be held horizontally not vertical. If you hold it that way you cant get the aspect ratio correct when it is processed for YouTube causing those black spaces your talking about.

Here is one I did holding it correctly.

Thanks for the reply, but when I do as you suggest I get the black boxes top and bottom instead of left and right.

Are you uploading the video directly to YouTube? Are you using a program or something to process it before you upload? If your using something to edit the video first just make sure to set the Aspect ratio correctly. I use Cyber Link Power Director and it automatically selects the correct aspect ratio. It uses 16:9. As far as uploading directly I am not sure I have ever done that actually but you would think YouTube would get it right when the video is processed. I will have to try and see for myself.

I had this issue with the regular camera, not just the camcorder, but not as extreme..

Here's a pic I took for a Wikia I'm on..

As you can see, there's a black bar on the right side. It only happened once so who knows..?

p.s., I've taken hundreds of photos with the camera so it's not a "holding it wrong" issue
