Video Orientation

I don't think I'll ever get used to vertical videos. Our eyes are side-by-0side, so our field of vision is horizontal; that's the way we see the world outside of videos. This comic is from Randall Munroe at xkcd.

I also hate the way they put blurred-out mirrors of the vertical screen on either side of that vertical screen. Very distracting.

Those side blinds are a crime. Turn your phone sideways, do the world a favour.

There should be an option for a phone to take horizontal photos and movies - or even switch automatically if held in that position. That would be more useful than the current multiplication of cameras.

The hover text didn't come with it. Here:

"Circular. Pro: Solves aspect ratio problem. Con: Never trust anyone who talks to you from a circle."

People are taller than wide(most of them) but it's usually not the person that's of interest, it's their situation, the stuff a horizontal picture shows.
