Video aspect ration

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

I need help. I am uploading a video at 3840 × 1634 aspect ratio and Squarespace is creating me the white bars on the video block. Is there any chance on removing it so it would look way better in the page and I wouldnt have all this space between heading and video?

Thank you!

Are you uploading this in a video block or background video? Can you share your website URL (site-wide password) and the page this is on? Thanks!

Thank you for your reply!

I uploaded in in video block. Currently it seems that the video block size is 16:9, however I created it to be 2:35 (cinematic widescreen) so it person who looks at the video wouldn't need to scroll down to see the full video.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Try adding to Design > Custom CSS

/* video top white bar */
div#block-a7d8a96307186ea9b4b3 .sqs-native-video .native-video-player {
    padding-top: 45% !important;
    width: 100vw;
    left: 50%;
    transform: translateX(-50%);
body {
    overflow-x: hidden;
