    Hi Marc –

    All my video posts are being pushed to the far right of the page, unlike your demo post here:

    Any ideas? It seems to be something about my YT videos I’m posting…

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Also, the second row of video posts on the homepage is being pushed to the right slightly.

    I just want to add that I’m using the regular Youtube video links and selecting ‘Video’ as the format. I’m not using the embed links.

    Vimeo seems to have worked, but Youtube doesn’t. They always shift to the right.

    I’ve also uploaded using WP’s videopress. The shortcodes don’t work with this theme either!

    Frustrated – help!

    Hello,
    It looks like we will be releasing an update for the theme to try to improve the embed code handling in the next 48 hours.

    Hi Yeeshkabob,

    I’ve just pushed an update for this to the WordPress codebase, hopefully it gets deployed soon so that your videos float correctly on the page.

    Thanks for being so patient with us.

    Yeeshkabob,

    I’ve just had a look at your site and I see that the YouTube videos are now aligning correctly.

    Can I mark this topic as resolved?

    Hey guys –

    The videos are now centered on the individual posts, but on the homepage the second row is still being pushed to the right. Every post is using the correct embedded Youtube link.

    Is there some sort of limitation with this theme and differing YT video resolutions? The videos aren’t filling up the entire frame of the smaller thumbnail embeds with my 16:9 videos.

    I posted a 4:3 video as well, and it seems that one fills the space. Unfortunately it’s a different shape than the others. This might have something to do with it? It also tends to misalign videos when a mixture of Youtube and Vimeo are used.

    Hi Yeeshkabob,

    Thanks for the feedback, I’ll report this to our team and get a fix out asap. The theme should be catering for any video dimensions.
