It depends on why the black bars are there.

Is the video upright (taller than wide) because it was shot with the phone being held upright rather than sideways? That's one challenge.

If the video is wider than tall, however, and it's not filling your video frame, that's a different challenge.

Keep in mind that the black bars means there is nothing there. It is more of a replace kind of option. If you can provide a screen shot of as an example it would be most helpful to suggest a few options.
