The 3.7% of internet users that were outraged by YouTube’s 4:3 format are celebrating in chat rooms around the globe today. Starting this morning, all videos on YouTube will be presented in widescreen format.
“We’re expanding the width of the page to 960 pixels to better reflect the quality of the videos you create and the screens that you use to watch them. This new, wider player is in a widescreen aspect ratio which we hope will provide you with a cleaner, more powerful viewing experience. And don’t worry, your 4:3 aspect ratio videos will play just fine in this new player.”
