Videos doesn't resize properly on narrow screens

Recommended Posts


I am having a issue with the responsiveness of videos on my squarespace site.

This is my site: 


Password: Test19site


The video blocks on the site, doesn't seem to scale the same way, the image blocks do on narrow screen sizes. See the attached screenshot for reference.



This is what it is supposed to look like:



When editing the site, it seems the videos doesn't fill the entire block. These videos are added using code, but the same thing seems to happen with normal video blocks.

This is the code I am using:

<video style="width: 100%"
  autoplay loop muted playsinline 
    <source type="video/mp4" src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/634ffc57ffdf0754b5b42989/t/637b6808e2b010736bb6ae04/1669031961613/Multiform+Design+element2+%E2%80%93+2000x1334.mp4">
  <body oncontextmenu="return false;">


Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Videos tend to keep a 16:9 radio, if you mimic that with an image that has a ratio of 16:9 and have it set to fit rather than fill (and set to align top) you should get closer to matching up the two blocks.
