Aspect Ratios

Aspect ratios are important to the viewers on Pornhub! As the large majority of users are viewing your videos on their phones, you should ensure to upload your content in either landscape (16:9) or portrait (9:16). 

When you film in portrait (9:16) and then edit on your computers to add in a post or pre-roll which is 16:9, then your videos won't appear the way they should on mobile devices. Instead of giving the viewer a full-screen viewing experience, they will only see a tiny box in the middle of their screen where your video is playing. This will lead users to click on a different video, and your views will drop!

 

Make sure to respect the correct aspect ratios when editing your content to ensure better quality content moving forward!

  

TIP
When filming with a phone, film in landscape if you'd like to have your video be 16:9. 
Do not start in portrait and then flip halfway through!
