YouTube videos have been "iPhoned"
If you've ever uploaded a video to YouTube from your iPhone that you took in portrait mode- you've noticed.
The video uploads as a tall video. It's widescreen by no-means, basically it uploads in a portrait orientation.
What causes that? Has anyone found that weird and peculiar?

it loads that way because you recorded it that way.
if you want nicer videos on youtube, you gotta learn how to shoot better. [ie better lighting, holding the camera steady, recording in landscape mode, etc]
there ARE ways to make portrait videos look nice through editing though. like putting 2 portrait videos side by side, or putting a title over it that extends into the black parts.

Edit: you could also consider editing your video after shooting in portrait. Some apps (iMovie for example) automatically crop portrait video into a square to avoid the issue we're talking about.
