Video presentation problem

  1. Hi there.

    I'm getting strange behaviour with embedded video:
    The static thumbnail state presents nicely, but the moment I press play, the video canvas re-sizes to a tiny video playback image encapsulated by the black strip of the player interface. Full screen function works, but returning back to the page view doesn't change the small state. Makes the page look broken.

    Tested in Chrome and IE9 on Windows 8.

    Can you help me fix please.

    Thanks, Sam

  2. Hi orca365,

    You can resolve this by adding the following CSS:

    iframe,object,embed {
         width: 100%;
         display: block;


  3. Hi there, thanks for that... Just need a bit of context - can you just let me know where that piece of CSS should be pasted?


  4. Hi again.

    It's fixed. Added a height value of 100% alongside the width.


  5. Glad to hear :)


  6. @interetinter, should this be fixed in the theme itself rather than in custom CSS?

  7. Designsimply,

    Absolutely it will be, with the CSS being a temporary fix. It will be included when the next set of fixes is completed, likely within the next couple of days.
