Camera Stuck in 4:3 Aspect Ratio
I have an Ifroo 1080P webcam that is showing up as a 4:3 aspect ratio on Spelltable instead of 16:9.
I am not able to change it, despite the settings on my PC showing it as 16:9.

Same issue with my Logitech c930e, but in the following configuration:
Fedora Linux 36 + Firefox 101
Have had the issue for a while (almost a year) but am listing the latest versions I have tested. The webcam feed sometimes takes more than a minute to appear, and when it does, it shows up in 4:3.
Some additional notes:
- My webcam works fine with the problematic configuration on other websites (webcammictest) and in other applications I have tested on Linux (OBS, Zoom).
- Firefox has default height and width values that can be set in about:config (media.navigator.video.default_height and media.navigator.video.default_width) that have no effect on this issue (tested with 1080p and 720p at least). The overrided settings do work in a test page I made that didn't specify video height or width constraints for the WebRTC user media.
In my case the issue isn't present when running Firefox 101 on Windows 10 or Chromium 100 on Fedora Linux 36. The feeds show up properly in 16:9. This gives me a workaround at least, though as far as I can tell there isn't anything more I can do to resolve it.
I have the same issue. Back then i was able to use everything correctly, but since the page has been bought it does not work properly anylonger.
A Workaround is to use OBS with a virtual camera, mounting the webcam as input. OBS will recognize everything correctly or at least allow you to fix that issue, hope it helps. Regards Max
