YouTube web player now adapts to different aspect ratios

But because there are older videos and people unaware of <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bt9zSfinwFA">vertical video syndrome</a> on YouTube, videos with inferior aspect ratios are an unfortunate reality. The team behind YouTube is making the best of this situation, and it's now made its web player adapt to different aspect ratios.</p> <p><span id="more-505583"></span></p> <p style="text-align: center"><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/43-1.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-505585" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/43-1-329x201.png" alt="" width="329" height="201" /></a> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/43-2.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-505586"...
