Resizing video block

Recommended Posts

Hi,

The video block defaults to a landscape video e.g. on YouTube etc. which means that when I upload a portrait video (specifically with in the ratio 9:16), it doesn't fill the container. So when I try to make the video bigger, the whole container also increases in size and restricts where I can put it on the page.

Is anyone able to help please?

I'm having the same issue, except that I can't increase the size of my video. 
Ideally I want the video to render at it's native size, or close to 100% scale for quality purposes (it's for mobile phone and ipad screen app mock ups).

What I get out the box is a tiny version of my video.
If I add the video as background it becomes a slim horizontal slither on smaller screen sizes.

@D-LAT@ben55 and @thesimpleexplorer

As @tuanphan said, share the site.

If you don't know how to, you can use the following help article.

It's hard to help you without being able to actually look at the page in question, so share the site and the specific page the issue is on.

Hey guys @KwameAndCo , got the same problem but with a modification...

I was able to display all video in vertical but now I need one or the horizontal video to be on the site and now they will be displayed in vertival boxes too.... maybe have a look on my site 

https://tristannusch.com/about

the video of myself in white SHOULD be horizontal but its in an vertical box which makes it hard to design in a proper way (huge black space underneath to the formular)

 

https://tristannusch.com/work/music here the videos are vertical so it is important, that both format are displayed correct 🙂 

have a nice one!

 

custom code and screenshot of my editor attached below
