Did you just upload a video and wonder why its in portrait mode? I uploaded a video on to YouTube and later realized that it was in portrait mode. I searched for options in the settings to change the mode to landscape. There was nothing of this sort there and all the sudden the light bulb went off. Maybe its the way you hold the camera/camcorder? Yup, thats it! Once you press record on your device (ipad, phone, etc) it will lock into that mode. Thumbs up?
