Fit the whole video on Instagram in three steps

Aspect ratio is the height/width correlation, and apparently, it depends on the device screen size. The most common one is the above-mentioned proportion 16:9, which means that a visual has 16 pixels long by 9 pixels broad. Other formats include 18:9 and 19:9 ratios.

Therefore, in the majority of cases, a recorded video is taller than 4:5. Luckily, there is an easy way to make a video fit on Instagram. You can just resize it and save all the beautiful frames by adding white or black borders.
