V2.10.3 video size settings not working (7 posts)

    With the update to v2.10.3 the video display size parameters are ignored.

    I even changed the default width in the settings page, but no effect.

    It seems like the video size is just taking up all the available width in the container.

    Looks terrible, has broken some layouts. Help!

    I'll try to see if putting the videos in their own divs will help size them until a fix is out. Please fix.

    Quick follow-up:

    Putting the video shortcode inside a div with a height and width style parameter does contain the videos to the desired size. This is a temporary fix - not the way the plugin should need to be used.

    (I also changed the default height/width in the settings page to be empty - no setting. This did not have any effect.)

    Also, just noticed that the video control bar is being displayed well above the base of the video. On my pages, it's at least 60px above the base and is displayed over the static image. Once clicked to play, it moves down to the bottom of the video.

    Just noticed that it's been 230 days since the last time the author of this plugin responded here in the support forums...

    I wonder what that means in terms of getting this bug fixed?

    I've reverted to Version 2.9.1 - problems are now solved.

    Seems like there are a lot of issues with the most recent version. I've seen that the solution to revert to the previous version seems to be working for many.

    I've often wondered where to find previous versions of plugins. Just today I figured this out. Just copy the URL from the download link for any plugin hosted here, and then change the last bit to the version you need. For example to get the previous version of this plugin:

    The source code is hosted @Github

    there are, at the moment, 302! issues regarding MediaElements
    (List here: github.com/johndyer/mediaelement/issues )

    Does anyone has a better alternative to play videos
    both on desktop browsers and on mobiles?

    Where is the AUTHOR of this plugin?

    How can a person post an update to a plugin and then never visit the support forum to check up on issues, bugs, etc?

    This used to be a perfectly working and very useful plugin. Now, well... not so much :-(

    What a shame.

    Might be, might be.... today, the list of issues display a bumping 442! Ok, only 14 bugs and 6 WP issues.

    Looking at the graph of the activity, the last peak was in April.

    To notice, there are 9 commits last week. Still alive! ;)

    And for sure the author, John Dyer, did a massive work, totaling 1849 commits during the life of this plugin

    You asked:
