    Hello,

    I’m sure someone has asked this question before, but I couldn’t find a solution on the forum. I am running several sites using the Enfold theme and have noticed that whenever I try to embed a YouTube video using the the “Add Media” button on a blog post, that the video shows up as a tall rectangle rather than in a 16:9 ratio. I only have this problem with YouTube videos. Vimeo videos work fine. Is there code I can add to correct the YouTube ratio throughout the entire site? Thanks!

    Hey Kirstie,
    I see you are using version 4.4, please update to v4.4.1, and if this doesn’t help, Can you please include a admin login in the private content area so we can take a closer look.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    I updated to v4.4.1, but everything still looks the same. I am having this same issue across multiple Enfold sites, but this is the one with the most videos.

    Hi,
    You could set a standard size for your videos with this css in the Enfold Theme Options > General Styling > Quick CSS field

    iframe[src*=youtube] {
    	    width: 560px!important; 
    	    height: 315px!important; 
    }

    or if you want your videos to be responsive try using percentages like this:

    iframe[src*=youtube] {
    	    width: 100%!important; 
    	    height: 98%!important; 
    }
    

    in my tests this worked out to be very close to the 16:9 ratio.
    but feel free to adjust to suit.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Thank you for getting back to me! I do want the videos to be responsive, so I added the code to my custom css:

    iframe[src*=youtube] {
    	    width: 100%!important; 
    	    height: 98%!important; 
    }

    But now the videos are cut off on the top on bottom. I tried out a few different percentages, but I still get the same effect.

    Hi MattJensenMarketing,

    Try the code like this

    
    iframe[src*=youtube] {
        width: 100%!important;
        height: 98%!important;
        min-height: 450px;
    }
    

    If you need further assistance please let us know.
    Best regards,
    Victoria

    That code worked for desktop, but the sides got cut off on mobile. I did some more poking around and was able to create a solution that worked. Thought I’d share in case any one else is having this problem!

    .embed-youtube {
        position: relative;
        padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16:9 */
        padding-top: 25px;
        height: 0;
    }
    .embed-youtube iframe {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
    }
