    I currently have 3 vimeo videos a little down my website ( that I would like to change to mediazilla. I can embed mediazilla using an iframe but do not know the dimensions I should aim for to match the current videos. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


    I use Mediazilla as well. You can always just jump on a basic aspect ratio calculator website (here’s one —> and plug in the dimensions from there to know what you’ll need to put in within the mediazilla code (i.e. 640×360, 480×270, etc). Hope this helps!


    Thanks mrjohnson2. I was able to dial it into the same height and width on full screen desktop but when I resize the window instead of shrinking it’s frame size like vimeo does, it seems to cut of the edges of the video. I will contact mediazilla about this, but do you know of a quick fix? It also seems to cut off part of the video image on mobile.



    I see what you’re saying now. Check out my private content

    I don’t see it.


    My apologies — I forgot that was only for moderators — i was thinking for some reason you could see that. Anyway, here’s what I posted below:

    Another option that you can do is do what I did — and have video playing on the website itself and then have it call the MZ video within a lightbox. Check out my website ( I use to have a whole lot more video on here playing, but I felt like it was getting a little “too busy” on the page — but I’m definitely after the wow effect for the end user, and it seems to work. Anyway, they are links now, but in the past, I’ve called MZ videos from these videos and did it that way. Right now, each of this clips is calling a vimeo video and that way, they resize no matter what the user does. Then from there, they can call the MZ video b/c at that point, they usually go full screen anyway. Hope that helps as I ran into the same issue as you did in the past — this is the route I took.

    Hi jimmiesner,

    I’m not sure if you need any further help, did you the suggestion posted by @mrjohnson2 help? Thanks for helping out btw @mrjohnson2 :-)

    Best regards,


    Thanks @mrjohnson2 and @rikard.

    I also got this reply from Mediazilla, telling me to insert the code in this link to either the style sheet or in the head section to get it to scale dynamically.

    Which do the developers recommend?



    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for the link. I think you should be able to try that out in Quick CSS under General Styling:

    .videoWrapper {
    position: relative;
    padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16:9 */
    padding-top: 0;
    height: 0;
    .videoWrapper iframe {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;

    Best regards,
