Re: widescreen setting

In the video settings, on the top right of the screen is a box that is currently reading 4:3. Press this and change it to 16:9.

Re: widescreen setting

Aspect ration can be changed.  Since gopro  has it defaulted on factory to AR4:3 like said   change it and you'll see more settings open up.

Re: widescreen setting

Hi @abell33310,

 

You can change the aspect ratio from the camera's video settings.

  1. While on video mode, tap the settings bar in the bottom-middle of the screen.
  2. Select RES | FPS.
  3. Tap the aspect ratio in the upper right corner to toggle between tall 4:3 (great for selfies and point-of-view shots) or widescreen 16:9 (great for cinematic shots).

 

Hopefully this helps!
