Youtube with ultrawides

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I plan on starting a youtube channel very soon and I am wanting to get an ultrawide (2560x1080). Will this be a problem for uploading 1920x1080 and below resolutions because of black borders? How do I prevent borders if I can use ultrawide?


I really have no knowledge so any is appreciated on these questions or further detail I should be considering for youtube on ultrawides! :)

99.999% of people are using 16:9, not ultrawide.

If you want to get a larger audience you should stick to 16:9.

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

I would record in window mode, and run whatever your recording in a 16:9 ratio (1920x1080) for example, and set that as your record window. It will not fill up your screen, but you could put chat, recording programs or other program in the space the game isn't take up so it still is use full. 


If you want to record your entire screen like for a tutorial or something I would change your desktop resolution to 1920x1080 recording what your doing then change it back.


As for the camera question, it depends on the camera, but generally speaking most cameras are 16:9 for video recording, especially cellphone and web cameras.
