Occasionally, Stringrs submit smartphone footage with the incorrect screen aspect ratio. Read this blog post for a quick fix.
by Kaitlyn Mitchell
This week’s blog post is quite technical, but we’re hoping it helps you out, Stringrs. Daily video submissions from Stringrs often appear on our platform in a smaller size than our customers prefer.
This is common problem that Stringr’s curation team comes across when carefully reviewing all of your video footage submissions: Some of the videos come in with a 4×3 aspect ratio, instead of 16×9. The aspect ratio is a term to describe the frame size of the video when it is eventually viewed.
At Stringr, the bare minimum requirements for your video to be promoted to our customers include:
- The video must be shot horizontally
- The video must be shot with a 16×9 frame aspect ratio
- The video must be newsworthy
- The video must be nicely shot
Luckily for you iPhone users, the iPhone will ONLY export 1080p quality video via the 16×9 aspect ratio.
