YouTube has added support for full-screen playback of vertical videos in their latest iOS app update.
Listen to Viticci. If 90% of people are going to view this video on a mobile device, and the intent of the video is not to display some grand artful vision, I’m better off if you don’t make me:
- Switch off orientation lock
- Rotate my phone
- Rotate my phone again, because it didn’t work the first time
- Start the video back from the beginning, because I missed it already
- Switch orientation lock back on, because most apps have terrible landscape experiences
