Change aspect ratio for a video

Recommended Posts

Hi! I have a video on my page that is a screen recording from an iphone but due to the fixed aspect ratio, the text on the video is too hard to be seen. I want to add code to make it so that I can create a custom size for the video but I only want it for this video on this page not all the videos on my website.

Thank you for sharing this video! I have tried these steps but I am still not able to change the aspect ratio. I feel like the block id I found for the video is not correct but I am not sure how to look for another one. I used the Squarespace ID Finder plug in to locate the block ID.

Hi, @smiler4ever did the code work without the block ID?

I can't access your video source, but if your video is landscape then this won't work. You will have to crop the video using a video editor to portrait before uploading to Squarespace. Then follow the video.

The video is not landscape. It was screen-recorded on my phone. Is that why this is an issue? Is there anyway I could give you access to the video source? I would really love to figure this out.
