Key thing here, if I understand your queston:

TVs, computer screens, etc are landscape aspect (wide but not high), so when people film things on their phones in portrait (tall and narrow) – because that's how people hold phones – and it's shown on a landscape device like a TV, the choice is either to have black blocks either side of the image, or those blurry bits.

And someone decided the blurry stuff looks better.

(There's a video on how to do it – complete with annoying ad) here: https://youtu.be/-Ax8yUp5Ru0


Thanks for that tb.

So I presume how it looks right now, will be the same for generations to come - oh joy.

Never mind that, what about completely blurry CCTV footage. "We've got footage of the criminal act in question, can you identify the thief?". "No, I don't know anyone who's face looks like it was drawn with a grey crayon."

Or when news websites ask for help identifying a person and publish about 7 screenshots but pixelate the face of the person they're asking for help to identify. What's that all about?
