Blurred video on sides of vertical narrow videos

Is anyone else tired of that fad of filling in the sides of narrow vertical video with those blurred strips? I am. I find it so difficult to pay attention to the main strip up the middle.

Why does everyone have to copy a stupid idea and create a new standard? Now all our local news channels are doing that. I really really really dislike it.

Now, for you techies, I do not have a need for the know how’s. I just know it is not necessary. Those sides were not filled in before. It was much easier to watch the narrow videos without those blurred sides “framing” it. I pray for the day that fad is seen with clear eyes and just stopped.

I have enough of a hard time getting rid of blurred vision. @Fiddlerman, please do not start doing yours or Michaels videos that way.

Me too @cid - good grumble there, bugs the heck out of me.

I've tried rotating my widescreen smart-TV 90 degrees, but it's not "smart enough" to adapt. [ ummm, that was a joke BTW rofl]

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Yup it's really annoying. In all the movie editors I've used that's standard for vertical videos, so that's what you get unless you select a background colour. Lazy editing work is my guess for most of 'em.

I've never like that.  I hope it goes away some day.

I do hope they put funny filters on, especially politicians.  Give them goofy hats, or dog snouts!  That would be way more entertaining!

ROFL @AndrewH - nice find....  awesome....  without getting into the current political situation in the UK, I'm pretty certain some of that would go down a hoot with most of the public here, whichever party they follow !!!!! 

EDIT: Particularly liked the comment in the post "Unfortunately for Mr Yousafzai, the cat was already out of the bag." roflroflroflrofl
