Overview

Try to enforce HD (16:9) camera aspect ratio for web-video calls

This browser extension attempts to fix a problem I've experienced on some video-calling sites (specifically, Zoom/WhereBy/Google-Meet), where their web clients don't properly ask for HD (1280x720 or 1920x1080) resolution from your camera, and in some cases (like mine) it results in squished/distorted video instead of just nice cropping as would be expected. This extension patches the built-in "getUserMedia(..)" API to intercept these kinds of calls and to force a request for 1280x720. Thus, if your camera supports that 16:9 HD aspect ratio, a proper non-squished feed will be returned to the web client. If your camera only supports 4:3 aspect ratio, such as 1024x768 or 640x480, then the request should nicely downgrade for your camera and still provide non-squished (albeit not-HD aspect ratio) video for your calls. By default, the settings for this extension only apply the patch to Zoom/WhereBy/Google-Meet sites. You can change the settings to apply to different sites. There's also a handy enable/disable toggle switch if you want to quickly turn off the extension temporarily without actually uninstalling it.

is it possible to customise aspect ratio? As I known it doesn't work on some websites like Cambly, if you try to enforce the aspect ratio they'll just tell you unable to initialize the video session. It's really frustrating

Great extension. My camera is a lumix gx85. It was causing my video calls to be squished. Once I ran this extension, every site is working. I use webex for medical, google meet for personal, and sometimes zoom for business. All three are now working fine.

It's great and works perfectly for me! I'm using a Sony mirrorless camera as a webcam, attached to the PC with an HD video capture card. I've tried everything butt Google Meet always stretched my video and my business calls where a bit awkward (I usually use Zoom that doesn't have this problem, but sometimes I have to use other software). This extensions solved my problem. Thank you, Kyle!
