Dear music video directors:
For whatever reason, you have decided to shoot your video in 2:35:1 anamorphic widescreen. And then you uploaded it to Youtube as a 1920x1080 video, with 124 pixel tall black letterbox bars at the top and the bottom, burned right into the video. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT??
People do this all the time and it makes no goddamned sense. The MP4 format, Youtube and every video player in the world all support videos of arbitrary even heights. Even worse is when they decide to be all retro and 80s and shoot in 4:3 with VHS filters on top, but they still pillarbox it out to 16:9. Double-you tee fuck.
You don't know what shape my screen is. Don't judge me.
Oh, and in "Youtube just gets worse every day" news: Youtube no longer allows me to favorite videos, because "Favorites", though special, are still just implemented as a playlist, and playlists have a maximum of 5,000 entries. Because who would like more things than that? 5,000 favorites should be enough for anybody.
