    Using your video module, how can I control the size of the video and stop it from showing related youtube videos?



    Hi rhsheehan!

    Thank you for using the theme!

    Instead of using the video element, add a text block then insert the video as iframe. Something like this:

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/PCGydpJXIOg?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Notice the rel=0 after the url? Go to the actual youtube video then click Share > Embed. Look for “Show suggested videos when the video finishes” and disable it. Get the embed code.



    Thanks for the reply. I will take a look at this and see how it works out.


    By the way, Thanks for the great support. Enfold is the best theme I have ever used. Can’t wait for you to come out with more like it.



    Glad you like Enfold :) Please try and let us know so we can mark this thread as resolved or assist you further



    Hi there,

    Not sure if this is the proper forum to ask, but I’m new to Enfold (just purchased two days ago) and not really techinical at all. Love the product thus far and it is very intuitive! Thanks for all your efforts in making us non-technical folks look good!

    My question is regarding videos. I have a Network Solutions website that I’d like to build and include videos. I have a video which I’ve uploaded to my media gallery (.mp4 format and 5MB size). However, it does not seem to play. I used the video component and filled in the proper information but when I view the page the video stays on “loading”. I tested by using one of the template videos that came with Enfold and it works. Please let me know what I’m doing wrong.

    Thank you!


    Hey Rory!

    Can you post the direct link to that video?



    Hello Josue,

    Here’s the link: http://03a1f12.netsolhost.com/wordpress1/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/SandArt.mp4
    It’s a video I purchased from shuttlestock.com
    Please help!
    Thank you!



    If you access the video directly, you’d notice it does play but it’s just a black background, i made a test here:

    Perhaps a codec issue or something.



    Thank you Josue,that worked! One more question please. Can you please point me to the instructions on how to add scrolling headlines that will display on top of my video?



    If you want it to be part of the video you’d need to edit the video with an editing software like iMovie or Sony Vegas.

    Best regards,


    Thanks Josue. No I didn’t want it part of the video. I was hoping to have a layer on top (with the video in the background) and have the words scroll across. I was thinking of adding a slider, using the transitions, may be able to accommodate this but have been struggling with it. The sliders would contain all of the text that I wish to scroll on top of the video. Thoughts? Thanks for your patience!


    I believe you can do something like that with LayerSlider and the marquee element.



    Getting back to the original question on the thread, it should be noted that if you use the iFrame method above the video will not be responsive.

    Is there some CSS that I can add in to used the embed code that allows ?rel=0 while also forcing it to re-size responsively?
    The Visual Composer editor allows it but Enfold’s Avia does not.




    Please add the below code to make the video element responsive

    You can adjust the 100% to 80% or any other number you like.

    video {
      width: 100%;
      height: auto;

    Thanks for the reply, unfortunately it doesn’t work.
    Whether it is in the css applied to videos or in the actual code it works only for the width and doesn’t hold for the height.

    <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0Ua7I1ILoJw?rel=0" width="100%" height="auto" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

    Using the widget in Enfold doesn’t let you add the inportant ?rel=0 code to a YouTube video and using the iframe code doesn’t let you make it responsive.



    Hi Jon!

    You could try using a plugin like:
