• The forum rules at Mac-Forums (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

Iphone video recording in 720 when set to 1080

I'm on an iphone SE currently iOS 13.3.1 and having an odd issue with recording video.

I have it set to 1080 30 in the camera options in settings, but the footage my phone records sometimes randomly records in 720. I've recorded a few clips today and some are 1080 and some are 720, for the life of me I can't work out why, and can't find much reference to other people having this issue.

Any ideas?
