Webcam Utility producing 4:3 vs. 16:9 aspect ratio

I have a Rebel T5i. I've installed the latest version of the webcam utility. I have a MAC. I've tried both Zoom and Google Meet and the results are the same. My video is displayed in 4:3 aspect ration vs. wide screen 19:6. On the sides of the video are 2 black bars. Any help in fixing this is greatly appreciated. 

 

I've followed the getting started guide and have my camera's movie recording size set to 1920 x 1080 (30 fps).

I found this in the FAQ section of the EOS Webcam Utility forum.

I believe the first FAQ that Waddizzle pointed out reveals the issue.  When measuring the image in the screenshot, it's right at a 3:2 aspect ratio; the default ratio for photos.

Thank you all for the quick replies. Perhaps this is just an issue then with the T5i since I believe I'm in video mode.

I had the same problem. Except I was using a Canon Rebel T3i
