Forcing Youtube to another aspect ratio

This is handy… I had a Youtube video which Youtube had detected as 16:9, even though it’s actually 4:3.

You can tell Youtube to override on playback by adding a tag: yt:stretch=4:3

There are other tags for cropping to 16:9, or forcing 16:9 display — more details in this article: Fix aspect ratio of YouTube videos, which is based on the official Youtube article
