I can't seem to get my NEX 5N to output MP4 video in 16:9. It shoots fine, but when I upload it to YouTube it comes out as 4:3 (even though I've selected the 1440xx1080 - NOT vga - high resolution format in the camera's Menu). Is there something I'm doing wrong?

I've tried the AVCHD format and it outputs to 16:9 perfectly on YouTube, but I want to take advantage of the smaller file sizes for upload by using MP4.


If you do the math, 1440:1080 IS 4:3.

How does youtube show it?  4:3 or 16:9.

Is there a setting for square or non-square pixels?
