Hello, I would like to make a list of some Youtube videos using aspect ratio 4:3.

So of the autogenerated Thumbnails are also in aspect ratio 4:3, some are shown with black bars on top and bottom to fit in 4:3. The uploaded videos in Youtube were made with the same camera but at different times. On youtube they are shown in the same manner (16:9).

How can I prevent the black bars? (Would like so send a screenshot but “I am not allowed”, the page is not publicly available)

Thanks for your help.

Regards

Jürgen
